Explore the Reasons for Your Tire Pressure Light Illumination

May 5th, 2019 by

Tire pressure monitoring systems make it easier to know what’s going on with tire pressure so that you’re not stranded on the side of the road. At Toyota Northwest Edmonton, we’re here to tell you why your tire pressure light may illuminate. It helps you to know what to do when it happens in Edmonton, AB.

First, it’s important to know that the temperature outside plays a role in your tire pressure. As the tire pressure adjusts, the light may come on. Hotter temperatures can create too much pressure while colder temperatures may dramatically reduce the pressure. Then again, you could actually have a puncture in your tire. If you drove over a nail, for example, the tire pressure is going to drop as you drive on it. The light on your dash will illuminate to show that there’s a problem that requires your attention.
