TPMS Service

TPMS Service in Virgie, KY

Your tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) tracks the amount of air pressure in your tires and alerts you when air pressure levels are too high or too low. With the changing seasons, it’s easy to lose track of your tires’ air pressure. At Punk's Tire & Wheel Alignment, we want to help you maintain proper air pressure.

If your TPMS malfunctions or your TPMS light turns on, you need TPMS Service. We urge drivers like you in Virgie, KY, Pikeville, KY, Whitesburg, KY, and surrounding areas to call us at (606) 639-4522 today for TPMS repairs.

When your TPMS sensors detect incorrect tire pressure levels, they alert other components in the monitoring system. Once alerted, the system turns on your TPMS warning light. Never ignore a warning light from your TPMS sensor!

TPMS 101

The location of your TPMS sensors depends on if you use a direct TPMS or indirect TPMS.

  • Direct TMPS: Uses sensors located inside each tire to read tire pressure levels
  • Indirect TPMS: Relies on speed sensor data from your wheels to determine tire pressure levels. Fast spinning wheels indicate low tire pressure.

Why is my TPMS light on?

When your tire pressure monitoring system detects an underinflated or overinflated tire, the TPMS light comes on in your vehicle. There are many reasons why your tires change pressure levels, activating your TPMS light. These include:

  • Weather: Hot weather causes tires to overinflate, and cold weather causes tires to deflate. If your TPMS light is on during a particularly hot or cold day, it may be due to your weather
  • Time: Tires deflate over time. If you notice your TPMS light, it may be due to one of more of your tires losing air from age.
  • Road Hazards: While driving, you may run over a nail or other item, puncturing your tire. In this case, your TPMS light turns on because your tire is actively losing air.

If you’re like most drivers, you’re probably scratching your head over the correct amount of air pressure your tires need. Don’t worry—you’re not alone. Most direct TPMS sensors require tires to have between 28 psi - 35 psi of air. We can help you locate the correct air pressure level for your tires.

It’s important to maintain proper pressure in your tires. When tires have wrong air pressure levels, they becomes a safety hazard. If pressure is too high, tires bounce and lose traction. If pressure is too low, tires heat up quickly and wear out easily. Overinflated or underinflated tires can lead to blowouts and accidents.

We want you to be as safe as possible. That’s why we’ll work hard to ensure your vehicle has the right amount of air pressure in each tire.
