What Does Your Tire Pressure Light Mean?

When your dash lights up, telling you something is wrong with your tires, is it important to stop? In most cases, the answer is yes. Your tires must be inflated properly, or safety will be affected. Under-inflated tires can't grip the road properly or create traction on wet surfaces.

For your safety, each tire has an internal pressure gauge that communicates electronically with your car. In some vehicles, the system tells you which tire has a problem. If it isn't specific about which tire, local Waukesha, WI drivers should check the pressure in all four tires, adding air as necessary. Make sure every tire has a secure stem cover. Look for damage, such as a nail that may threaten the tire's stability.
