What to do When Your Tire Pressure Light Illuminates

Keeping the right amount of pressure in your tires is important. A tire pressure light illuminates when the tire pressure dips below the minimum acceptable standards. There are a number of reasons why your tire pressure light may illuminate, and it's important to check the pressure as soon as you notice it come on.

A few things that can cause your tire pressure light to come on is punctures and extreme temperatures. When it's hot, the tires can over-inflate, which will cause the tire pressure light to illuminate. During cold mornings, your tire pressure light may come on because overnight temperatures caused the pressure in the tires to drop.

If your tire pressure light continues to illuminate, then have it inspected by our team at DCH Tustin Acura. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that tire pressure monitoring systems reduce the number of motor accident injuries by 8,500 and fatalities by 120 every year.
