Reasons Why Your Tire Pressure Warning is Illuminated

The tire pressure indicators on the dashboard of your car will alert you to potential tire issues. Consider a few reasons why it may be lit before hitting the road.

If something is stuck in the tire, air may be escaping. Never remove the item; an auto service technician can remove it correctly and repair the tire. Take a closer look at the tire for anything that looks out of the ordinary. The side walls should not have any bulges or cracks that could compromise the tires.

Look at the tire treads for areas of uneven wear or if any part of the tread is separating from your tire. One thing to consider is the tire pressure may drop slightly in severely cold temperatures. The light should reset as the air temperature rises.

At Galleria BMW, we can inspect the tires if you don't see anything causing the indicators to be lit.
