This video shows how your Lincoln’s tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) can help ensure that your driving experience is safe, smooth, and comfortable. If any one of your four road tires is significantly under-inflated, the TPMS will illuminate a warning light on your dashboard. If the warning light is illuminated, you should park your vehicle, use a tire gauge to determine the exact pressure of your tires, and then inflate them to the proper pressure if necessary.
