Default In the 2004 Acura MDX, what does "TPMS" stand for underneath the car temp on the dashboard?

My husband just purchased this vehicle and it did not come with the manual. Also, what should I do when the "TPMS" light comes on? Thank-you for all of your answers !!

The dealer at least should give you a manual. It could be consider a safety issue for the safe operation of the vehicle. If you bought it from an independent dealer I would say that is a bad Yu-Yu.Try to get one is worth to have one.

as everyone said before; its your Tire Pressure Monitoring Systembut I'll be the first one to tell you what it actually means. If your light is on it means that one of your tires is too low. you need to check your tire pressure

if there is the tpms light and a (!) light on that means the system is malfunctioning (IE: the battery in the wheel sensor ran out of juice or the system is deactivated) if just the tpms light is on look inside of the drivers side door sill and see what the correct tire pressure is and add air to the correct psi. in vehicles with the tire pressure monitoring systems i always recommend that you get nitrogen pumped in your tires bj's Costco Sam's club all do this service. the reason i recommend the nitrogen is because it is not affected by heat or cold the way regular air expands or contracts therefore not kicking on the light when the tires are cold and making you add more air unnecessarily
