Low Tire Pressure Light Giving You Trouble? We Can Help!

600 × 400

As winter creeps closer and closer, you're bound to notice a few things like the air getting colder, the days getting shorter, and your low tire pressure light getting more aggressive. When the temperature drops, it takes your tires' pressure down with it. This is common in late fall and winter when the temperature outside starts to plummet, particularly at night. That's when your low tire pressure light triggers and stays on to let you know that your tires need attention.

My Low Tire Pressure Light Keeps Coming On

If this warning light illuminates and stays on while you're driving, it means that your tires are low and that they need air. Use a tire pressure gauge to check pressure and fill them with enough air according to the levels noted in your owner's manual or on the driver's side doorjamb.

My Low Tire Pressure Light Turned Off On Its Own

Inconsistent outside temperatures may cause pressure levels in your tires to fluctuate. Your low pressure monitor may alert you to a problem in the morning and then decide that it's not an issue as the day warms up. It's still a good idea to check your tire pressure.

What Happens If I Ignore My Low Tire Pressure Light?

Never ignore your low tire pressure light. Your tires need adequate air pressure in order to function properly and safely. Consistently low tire pressure can cause premature tire wear, damage your vehicle's fuel economy, and even put you at risk for a tire blowout.

My Low Tire Pressure Light Blinks and Then Stays On

If your low tire pressure light flashes for about a minute and then remains on, there is something wrong with your tire pressure monitor. Bring your vehicle to Nissan of State College so we can take a look and fix it up!
