Why Is My Tire Pressure Light On?

Maintaining the correct tire pressure is a critical part of keeping your vehicle safe on the road. It decreases wear and tear on tires and increases fuel mileage. Most later model cars have tire pressure lights. What does it mean when yours starts to glow?

It could mean you need to add air to your tires. Or it could simply be a natural variation in tire pressure caused by the outside temperature. If the light comes on after starting your car on a cold morning, don't panic. Cold weather naturally decreases tire pressure. Once you get moving it should increase and the light will go out. On the other hand, your tire pressure will increase if you're driving long distances in extremely hot weather.

The tire pressure light in your car is really just a warning that you need to check your tire pressure. If you have questions or would like a professional to take a look at your tires we here at the service center of Klement Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM in Decatur, TX would be happy to help.
