Reasons for Tire Pressure Light Illumination

One of the great features that is included in the majority of new vehicles is tire pressure sensors on each of your tires and sometimes on your spare tire as well. These sensors are designed to alert you when the pressure inside of one or more of your tires has fallen below twenty-five percent of the recommended level.

Each type of tire has its own recommended amount so that's something to keep in mind if you have just gotten a new vehicle. If you have checked the air levels in all five of your tires and still can't figure out the problem, here are some other common issues:

  • Your tire may have something stuck inside of it that is causing the pressure inside of your tire to be affected.
  • Your sensor may have come dislodged or damaged during driving.
  • The tread on your tire may be very low and it is time for new tires.

Stop by our service department if you need help with your tires.
