Reasons Why Your Tire Pressure Icon Gets Illuminated

When you are driving through Portland and you suddenly see that your tire pressure light has come on, there are a couple of reasons why that might have happened. The first reason, of course, is that a tire is indeed losing pressure. This could either be a puncture, or it could just be a slow loss of air.

The other reason that the light might come on is that there is something going on with the sensor itself. Sometimes the sensor will just go off if there is a kind of sudden change in the climate. There is also a chance the sensor itself might have been damaged.

There is also a chance that the sensor's fuse has been damaged in some way. If the light comes on and you have checked the tire pressure manually, then you are going to want to go to a local auto service shop and have it checked out.
