Why Your Car's Tire Pressure Light Is Illuminated

Every auto manufacturer sets a recommended tire pressure. Most cars made within the past ten years have an electronic sensor in the wheel. If the tire pressure falls too low, a light illuminates on your dashboard to alert you.

The tire pressure naturally drops about 1.5 psi each month when there is no tire problem. After a few months, this could trigger the sensor to illuminate the light. Your tire pressure could also drop because of a change in the weather. When the temperatures vary wildly from one day to the next, the pressure could drop, causing the tire pressure light to be illuminated.
