TPMS on Chevrolet: Things to know

When American government insisted on the importance of TPMS system installation on all cars, trucks and SUVs in the U.S., both domestic and overseas carmakers had to compile with this policy if they wanted to continue their business on the U.S. market.

Chevrolet, one of the General Motors prime car makers, immediately reacted to this policy, so every car, truck and SUV that came from their assembly line features standard TPMS sensors.

TPMS system of the Chevy

TPMS, or Tire Pressure Monitoring system, consists of the following components:

  • a head unit, that is built into the vehicle itself;
  • 4 TPMS sensors (1 per wheel);
  • appropriate wiring;
  • dash light that indicates TPMS errors.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System Scheme

Once any of the wheels is under- or over inflated, a sensor in the wheel notices the pressure that differs from what is recommended and sends a signal to the head unit. When this happens, the TPMS system of the Chevy gives that TPMS error by showing the adequate dash panel sign. That’s how the system warns the driver about the error.

Why buy mud flaps?

Here are 5 good reasons to consider

◉ Protection of your ride. Everything is simple. Mudflaps, mudguards, or splash guards just stop debris, rocks, and mud from kicking your vehicle in hot pursuit behind you.

◉ Mudflaps save your money. As a rule, you will need to buy mud flaps once for the life of your truck. So, you pay a small price instead of having to go through costly dent repairs, paint job, and detailing service.

◉ Protection of your towable. If you have a boat or a trailer, you definitely know, how much it costs. A quality mud flap system will help you protect your trailer, boat, etc. from preventable damages. Besides, there is no reason to save on driving without a mud flap system to maximize the protection of your $80.000 boat. It is always a good idea to protect your investment.

◉ Styling and customizing your truck. There are so many great options that allow customizing your aftermarket mud flap system. Just check out any online shop to see a variety of ways they offer to dress up your flaps. Besides, you are welcome to select from the molded, universal, hitch, or frame-mount mud flaps. There are so many options to consider.

◉ Cleaning costs. By installing a high-quality mud flap system you will cut down the time you spend at the manual spray down car wash. You will no longer have to scrub off the caked-on mud on your fenders, as mud flaps will take the abuse from the water spray and minimize the amount of mud that gets on your vehicle.
