Lotus Elan Tyre pressure monitoring system installation
Lotus Elan tyre pressure monitoring system
A tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is designed to constantly monitor the temperature and pressure of the tyres on your Lotus Elan. If the pressure goes above or below the set range, the TPMS will give you audible and visual warnings.
Depending on the kit you buy, a TPMS can monitor the pressures of between 1-22 tyres. The system works via sensors attached either to each tyre valve you wish to monitor or the vehicle’s anti-lock braking system (ABS). In either case, these sensors communicate with a monitor that sits inside the cabin.
Low tyre pressures can have a number of negative impacts on your Lotus Elan and the tyres themselves. These include decreasing the life of the tyres and negatively impacting your car’s handling. Low tyre pressures can also increase your braking distance and impair fuel economy. It’s nearly impossible to spot differences in tyre pressures with the naked eye unless they are massive. A TPMS will help you keep on top of your tyre pressures and help you keep your Lotus Elan and its tyres in the safest condition possible without you having to constantly visit the nearest service station air pump.
