The dreaded TPMS light. This tech tip explains a simple diagnostic suggestion.
TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System. It is an electronic system that keeps an eye on your tire pressure and warns you when a tire is under-inflated.
In Part 1, we began to discuss the importance of oxygen sensor voltage codes. Voltage codes can be caused by sensors that are bad and stuck lean or rich. These codes can also be caused by lean or rich running conditions. The case studies we will focus on will look at pre-cat oxygen sensor codes, both caused by parts other than the O2 sensors.
The powertrain control module (PCM), which controls virtually every function of the engine and automatic transmission, depends upon an input signal from the TPS (among other things) to calculate fuel delivery and ignition timing strategy.
