Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - Required  
Federal Explanation  
Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked  
monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure  
recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard  
or tire inflation pressure label.  
(If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated  
on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should  
determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.)  
As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with  
a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low  
tire pressure telltale  
when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.  
Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you  
should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate  
them to the proper pressure.  
Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to  
overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces  
fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle's  
handling and stopping ability.

Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire  
maintenance, and it is the driver's responsibility to maintain  
correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the  
level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.  
Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction  
indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly.  
The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the low tire  
pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction, the  
telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain  
continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon  
subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists.  
When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may  
not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure as intended.  
TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including  
the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the  
vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly.  
Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or  
more tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the  
replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to  
continue to function properly.
