Understanding Your Tire Pressure Light

Your tire pressure light may illuminate in West Simsbury, CT for a number of reasons. At Hoffman Toyota in West Simsbury, CT, we’re here to help you understand the reasons why it might come on and what you should do about it.

The light will generally come on because there is a problem with the pressure in the tire, measured in PSI. On cold mornings, the pressure may be low. On hot mornings, the pressure may be high. These fluctuations can cause the light to come on. It may be a good idea to check the pressure, so you can adjust it accordingly.

If there is a puncture in the tire or damage to the sensor, the light will illuminate, too. This is all the more reason to get it checked so that you don’t drive around town on a damaged tire. It’s better to stop in for a check than to experience a flat on the side of the road.
