Ensuring that a vehicle’s tires are inflated to the proper level is a hassle that many vehicle owners prefer to avoid, and that’s why automotive manufacturers developed warning systems that continuously monitor tire pressure. Keep reading to learn more about this important safety feature, and be sure to keep Cox Auto Group in mind the next time you need tire repair or replacement services.

Although tire pressure monitoring systems can malfunction like any other vehicle component, most of the time the warning light is on because low tire pressure has actually been detected. Even high-quality, properly inflated tires will gradually lose pressure over time due to small leaks through the tire wall and around the valve stem.

Temperature also plays a role in tire pressure. Daily and seasonal temperature drops can cause corresponding drops in tire pressure, and this can trigger the tire pressure monitoring system.
