If you have a low tire(s) the dash notice will say "Check Tire Pressure" (I had a bout of a slow leaking tire and dealt with this very recently. Properly filling the low tire(s) will shut off this message.

The message "Service Tire Monitor" means one (or more) of the Tire Pressure Monitors are mailfunctioning. Mine just went of yesterday. I have not been to the dealer yet....but have seen on the web that people say the cost to replace one TPM is $120.

That means a sensor has detected either a low pressure situation in one or more of your tires or it is time to replace your tires. In any case, you need to bring your vehicle to a shop, preferrably a tire specialist shop, and have them look at it.

What does service tire monitor mean on a 2005 chevy tahoe means


It means you have a malfunction in the TPMS system. First you can try to do a reset as follows: 1. key on, engine off, parking brake on. 2. turn park lights on and off 4 times you will hear a horn chirp twice, you are in program mode. Start at L/F tire release air for 10 seconds, wait 15 seconds until horn chirp, after chirp go to R/F tire do the same until horn chirp then R/R let air out til the chirp then L/R do the same after the L/R chirp, turn key off and you are done, note you have only 5 min. to complete. If you do not hear horn chirp at each tire, you will have to start from beginning. When complete, remember to add air to each tire, 35 psi is recommended.
If that does not work you probably have a bad TPMS sensor, which will have to be replaced. Some auto parts stores will test your sensors for free, so check around.

My "Service Tire Monitor System"


If all tires are properly inflated you have 1 or more bad tire pressure monitors in your wheels. Will need to hook up to a tire pressure monitor scanner & it will tell you which one is bad. They are connected to the bottom of your valve stem in every wheel.

What does it mean when the warning SERV_TPM come on


Hello, SERV-TPM means Service Tire Pressure System. There could be several items to bring up this message. It could be a bad sensor in one of the wheels. It could also be the sensors require programming. The best way to find out is to have the system checked for codes. Before you do any of the above. check the placard on the drivers door for the correct pressure then check each tire with a gage. Thank you

This is my first cadillac, I just bought it... This is my first cadillac I just bought it yesterday and today it keeps saying " Service Tire Monitor" what does that ...


Service Tire Monitor means that one or more of your tires are underinflated, causing an out of balance condition that it can detect through the wheel speed sensors.

The code should be covered in your manual, to tell you how to reset it after the tires are inflated evenly to manufacturer's specifications.

I would check the sizes of all your tires to verify that they are the same type and size recommended by Cadillac. Also, check the tire inflation in all 4 tires to make sure they are even.

Then, follow the instructions in your manual on how to turn the 'Service Tire Monitor' light off.

If you don't have a manual, you might go to the Cadillac.com website and look under 'owners' and you can sign on to Yahoo! and get a free manual downloaded to your computer for viewing or printing, I believe.

It will come back on if the tires are unevenly inflated as you go down the road several miles.

Ford Windstars, also, have this feature. A lot of newer cars past the year 2000 have this feature which helps you to monitor the pressures and avoid getting a flat tire on a long trip.

Good luck travelling in your first Cadillac.

I have 3 Cadillacs at my disposal, a 1976 Seville, a 1990 Deville, and a 1997 Deville Limo and I love all of them, although the 1976 and 1990 need paint jobs here in Pennsylvania's harsh weather.

Service tire monitor shows up


This usually means one of the tires are under inflated. Just check the tire pressures and adjust them..and the light should go out..If not there may be a hidden problem with the antilock brake system, as tires are monitored by the abs wheel speed sensors ..hope this helps..

Mistu eclipes check engine light came on - it looks like this (!) what does that mean?


This is a low tire pressure indicator.

If the light is illuminated, it means one or more of your tires have fallen below 28 psi.
Take the vehicle to a shop or gas station and have the tires aired back up to 32psi (or your preference for pressure)
The light will go out after about 1/4 mile of driving at the right pressures.

If the light is flashing, you have a fault in the tire pressure monitor system and require service from a Mitsubishi dealer (factory scan tool is required for service)
