Car Maintenance: Why Is My Tire Pressure Light On?

If your tire pressure light is coming on, it is no reason to panic. There are many reasons why this light could be coming on. Here are some of the most common reasons:

Cold temperatures

If you start your vehicle on a cold morning, you might notice that your tire pressure light will come on for a brief period of time and then disappear. In this case, it might mean that your tire pressure is slightly low and briefly falls below the threshold to trigger the light in the cold temperatures and then it goes back after the tire heats up.

Warmer temperatures

Sometimes, summer temperatures can cause the tire to overinflate, making it trip off the tire pressure light.

Of course, there are a number of other reasons why the tire pressure light might go off, including some reasons that are more complicated than just an underinflated tire. If you have any questions about your tire pressure light, go to Crowfoot Dodge Chrysler Inc. today for a service appointment!
