If the TPMS light or the MIL lamp have recently become illuminated on your dashboard, you need to have your vehicle inspected for potential safety hazards or necessary maintenance. Vehicles are often equipped with sensors that are designed to prevent unsafe driving conditions or detect equipment that is malfunctioning. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) will alert you if your tire pressure has become too low. The Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL), which is also known as the Check Engine Light, is the indicator that a problem has been detected via a system of sensors that detect issues with your vehicle’s engine, transmission, or emission control system.

The TPMS light serves to help prevent any damage resulting from improperly inflated tires. Vehicles running on tires with reduced or inconsistent tire pressure can have problems with how the vehicle handles on the road, tire performance, and the load carrying capacity. Driving a car with improperly inflated tires can be potentially quite dangerous. Properly inflated tires will reduce tread movement, disperse water around the tires, and increase fuel economy. The MIL lamp serves to indicate a large variety of both minor and major issues. When the Check Engine Light illuminates on your vehicle, it is best to have a professional diagnostic done as soon as possible.
