Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TMPS)

2020 Acura MDX Pricing and Specs Tire Pressure Monitoring System

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) can detect improperly inflated tires that can be safety hazards. Using pressure sensors mounted in each wheel that send readings to a central electronic control unit, the system evaluates whether the pressure is in an acceptable range.

  • If a reading is significantly below the recommended level, the MDX will alert the driver through the Multi-Information Display (MID) located on the instrument panel.
  • The problem tire will be indicated, along with the individual pressure for all four tires.
  • You can access the pressure display anytime through the MID controls on the steering wheel.
  • As useful as TMPS is, it is still recommended that you manually check your tires on a regular basis.
