Is an Illuminated Tire Pressure Light Cause for Concern?

If you get into your vehicle, start the engine, and notice that the tire pressure light remains illuminated on your dashboard, it's giving you important information to make it a priority today to get your tire pressure levels checked.

Your vehicle's Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is designed to have the tire pressure light remain illuminated to alert you that tire pressure levels are either too low or overinflated. Both conditions contribute to unsafe driving conditions because incorrect tire pressure levels cause an unstable ride, tire blowouts, and shorten the lifespan of your tires.

Our service technicians at Koons Volvo in the Baltimore area are ready to help bring your tires up to the proper air pressure levels recommended by your car or truck manufacturer. It may be disconcerting to see the tire pressure light remain illuminated, but it's an important signal for you to pay attention to for tire and driving safety.
