The Proper Way to Diagnose and Reset TPMS Systems

The tire pressure monitoring system’s (TPMS) primary function is to make the driver aware of the state of tire pressure within the tires. Under normal system operations, the TPMS system will alert the driver when one or more affected tires PSI reading falls below 25% of the vehicle’s placard. When the tire sensor indicates “low tire pressure,” it sends a radio frequency (RF) signal of 315 or 433 MHz to the ECU on the vehicle that determines if the pressure is below the threshold, which then will indicate a TPMS symbol or position-specific display, depending on the vehicle.
