The Function of the Tire Pressure Light

Newer vehicles on the market, and a few older vehicles, will be equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system. The monitoring sensors allow for a warning light to illuminate on the dashboard if they detect that your tire pressure is too low. Low pressure in a tire can be caused by a tire puncture that occurs when you run over a nail or a screw.

If the tire monitor light illuminates, you should get your tires checked right away. You may just have lost some air over time, or you may have lost some air due to fluctuations in the outside temperature. You can keep the tire pressure light from coming on in these situations by regularly making sure that you have the proper amount of air in each tire.

If your tire pressure light has come on, come to our Volvo service center in Moline, IL. We can check the pressure and fix problems if needed.
