Q: Low Tire Pressure light is on

asked by on

My Low Tire Pressure light is on, but I have checked the tires and the pressures are all okay.

You need to reset your TPMS system. This is done through the controls on your steering column. Consult your vehicle owners manual or look for a simple "how to" video such as this one here. If the system still will not reset, you may have a problem with one or more of the tire pressure sensors. If you need assistance, a qualified mechanic can inspect and repair your tire sensors.
