Tire is Losing Pressure
Low Tire? No Problem
Youre Driving down the road and see the Tire Pressure Light pop on. Immediately it becomes a big concern, as it should. As you drive, the friction between the Tire and Road causes heat and pressure to increase so when a Tire Light comes on while driving, this is something where you should find a safe place to pull over and check. If your TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) Light is on at start up and you have checked all the Tires, you probably have a Tire Pressure Sensor Issue. To figure out what Tire Sensor you are having a problem with you will need an automotive shop with a Scan Tool that has proper Tire Pressure Monitoring Tools to Diagnose your problem. Most Tire Pressure Sensor Batteries are expected to last 7 to 10 years and may need to be replaced. Keep in mind, when a New Tire Pressure Sensor is installed, the Vehicle may not pick up signal from older/weaker Tire Pressure Sensors, so be prepared to install in sets.
