A Few Reasons Your Tire Pressure Light is Illuminated

The tire pressure light in your vehicle is designed to alert you when the tire pressure has fallen out of the recommended range. Here are a few reasons why this could happen.

When the outside temperature drops by ten degrees, you can expect the air pressure in the tires to drop one pound. These underinflated tires are most than an annoyance, this condition actually increases the likelihood of a tire blowout. The air in the tire is also escaping naturally at about a pound each month.

There are little things on the road like broken glass and nails that can puncture the tire while hiding inside the tread. The leak is slow, and usually the sensor will illuminate once a certain amount of air has escaped from the tire.

When the tire pressure light in your vehicle continues to illuminate, it might be time to get it inspected at European Masters.
