How often do you ignore the lights on your dashboard? Some lights are more important than others, but they should always be addressed as soon as possible to avoid unnecessary damages and repairs. Your tire pressure check light is one that often gets ignored and the monitoring system is something that likely gets thought about even less.
The light can also come on, then turn off. Why?
The tire pressure light means that at least one tire is probably very close to the minimum or maximum rated inflation. As the air contracts, due to cold weather, or heats up, the sensor is triggered. It’s still a good idea to come into double check your tires are properly inflated.
If yes, it’s likely because it is malfunctioning and the read is no longer dependable. What to do? Bring your car in to see our certified technicians to take a quick look, diagnose and ensure your car is safe to drive.
Your TPMS does exactly what it says it does. Monitors and keeps track of your individual tire pressures. It works independently of each wheel and will alert you as soon as any tire drops 25 percent below the recommended pressure.
