The Function Of The Tire Pressure Light

Many of the vehicles sold at Acura of Honolulu are equipped with tire pressure monitor systems. With these systems, there is a sensor in each tire. If the pressure becomes low, the driver receives a warning. What can cause the tire pressure light to come on?

The main cause of the light coming on is a tire that has been punctured and is leaking air. The light lets the driver know that a tire might be having a problem, and the driver needs to take action to deal with the problem tire.

Another reason that the light might come on is due to the changes in tire pressure that can occur as a result of the weather. If the air pressure drops just low enough, the light will come on. You need to check your tires just to be safe, but these temperature fluctuations are nothing to be concerned about.
