Some 300 2013 Volvo S80 sedans and XC70 wagons are being recalled by Volvo due to TPMS software errors. What happens is that the tire pressure monitoring system would display “TPMS Service Required” on the vehicle dash even if the pressure in the tires are inflated to vehicle specifications. This error can pose a real problem to drivers since it prevents the TPMS system from accurately alerting the driver if one or more tires is actually underinflated.
Schrader has announced its new solution to heavy-duty vehicle tire pressure monitoring: the Off-The-Road (OTR) tire pressure monitoring system. This TPMS system is designed to measure and transmit critical tire performance data in heavy-duty machinery such as: port vehicles, construction vehicles, earthmoving vehicles, and mining vehicles. Tire pressure and temperature data is transmitted to both the drivers and fleet managers, allowing for better on-site operational performance and critical decision making.
Properly inflated tires can decrease tread wear, reduce fuel consumption, optimize vehicle performance, and most importantly, improve road safety. Visit www.TPMSDIRECT.com for the latest in TPMS technology, industry news, and know-how. TPMSDirect takes the headache out of TPMS.
