Reasons Your Tire Pressure Light is Illuminated

If the pressure light in your vehicle keeps coming on, it might be time to look closer at the cause. If the outside temperature does drop by only ten degrees, then the air pressure in the car tires could decrease by as much as a pound in every tire. Now add into that mix the fact that air in the tires is already naturally escaping at close to a pound each month, and it is easy to see why the tire pressure indicators are showing a drop in pressure.

If you have an obstruction in the tire you cannot see or find, air may be escaping all day too. Get the tires to the tire service center so a technician can locate what has pierced the rubber of the one tire having an issue.
