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.
Tire pressures change by approximately 1 psi (7 kPa) per 12° F (7° C) of air temperature change.
Keep this in mind when checking tire pressure inside a garage, especially in the Winter. Example:
If garage temperature is 68°F (20°C) and the outside temperature is 32°F (0°C), then the cold
tire inflation pressure should be increased by 3 psi (21 kPa), which equals 1 psi (7 kPa) for every
12°F (7°C) for this outside temperature condition.
The TPMS has been optimized for the original equipment tires and wheels. TPMS pressures
and warning have been established for the tire size equipped on your vehicle. Undesirable
system operation or sensor damage may result when using replacement equipment that is not
of the same size, type, and/or style. Aftermarket wheels can cause sensor damage. Do not use
tire sealant from a can, or balance beads if your vehicle is equipped with a TPMS, as damage
to the sensors may result.
- Engine Temperature Warning Light
This light warns of an overheated engine condition.
If the light turns on or flashes continuously while driving, safely pull over and stop the vehicle. If
the A/C system is on, turn it off. Also, shift the transmission into NEUTRAL and idle the vehicle.
If the temperature reading does not return to normal, turn the engine off immediately.
We recommend that you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur. Have the
vehicle serviced immediately.
A hot engine cooling system is dangerous. You or others could be badly burned by steam or
- Transmission Temperature Warning Light
This light indicates that there is excessive transmission fluid temperature that might occur with
severe usage such as trailer towing. If this light turns on, stop the vehicle and run the engine at idle,
with the transmission in NEUTRAL, until the light turns off. Once the light turns off, you may
continue to drive normally.
Continuous driving with the Transmission Temperature Warning Light illuminated will even-
tually cause severe transmission damage or transmission failure.
