TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System. There are sensors inside your tires that monitor your tire pressure and tell you if they are low. Depending on the car, this light could mean that your tire pressure is low. If you changed your tires recently, the technician could have knocked the sensor, or if you changed rims, there may not be a sensor inside that rim and is showing up as an error code on your dash.

The Service stability light on 2003 escalade comes and shuts down my vehicle. What does this mean and what will it cost to fix


Cluster warning lights

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

My Cadillac devil 2004 is prompting me saying"tire monitoring sensor" isn't wiring or need to be replaced. I'm a do it yourself kind of guy is this something I can fix myself ? And what's my best plan


The TPMS monitors tire pressure and sends a signal to the Cadillac's computer when there is low tire pressure. When the tire pressure is restored, the Cadillac's TPMS should reset itself. However, if it does not, the TPMS light on the dash will stay lit. When this happens, you need to know how to manually reset the TPMS light and sensors.

Instructions

1 Press and hold the tip odometer button on the gauge cluster.

2 Wait until the display screen brings up the settings menu.

3 Release the "reset" button and press it again to scroll through various settings.

4 Keep pressing the "reset" button until you come to the TPMS setting.

5 Press and hold the "reset" button until the TPMS light on the dash resets.

What does an ! in a circle mean with ( ) around it


This (!) symbol is your TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) warning light.
The manual has this to say about it:
This system monitors tire pressure. if the low tire pressure warning light illuminates, check the tire pressure in all four tires. Adjust the low tire pressure to the recommended cold tire pressure shown on the Tire and Loading information label located in the driver's door opening. After tire pressures are adjusted, the vehicle will need to be driven at speeds above 16 MPH (25 km/h) to activate the TPMS and turn off the low tire pressure warning light.
