Why You Shouldn't Ignore A Low Tire Pressure Light, Here's What Your Should Do
If your vehicle's low tire pressure warning light or symbol comes on, don't ignore it; You could be getting a flat tire. Instead, come into Vermillion Chrysler in Vermillion, Alberta, to have your vehicle's tires check for a leak.
Tire pressure warning lights are typically located in the gauge cluster of a vehicle's dashboard. Warning lights are usually amber and resemble a tire's cross-section with an exclamation point. The low tire pressure symbol informs you of low air pressure in one or more tires. Since the tires' best performance and safety benefits are within a specific range of air pressure, measures in pounds per square inch (PSI), the warning light may illuminate when the pressure has dropped from a tire, losing air from a 10-degree drop in temperature. Your vehicle's tire pressure monitoring system will alert you long before low pressure is visible.
Low Tire Pressure Gauge
Whenever a tire pressure warning light turns on, it's time to check your vehicle's tires with a tire pressure gauge. Doing monthly tire pressure checks of all your tires can help you keep them at the optimal level of inflation and enable you to identify slow leaks early, possibly before the pressure drops down enough for the warning light to come on. If the warning light comes on, schedule a service appointment right away to have our trained service technicians check the pressure of all four tires, including the spare, adding air to any tires that have decreased below the range listed on a sticker inside the driver's door. You can also purchase a tire gauge for your peace of mind directly through our Parts Centre.
