What does the Low Tire Pressure Light on the dash mean?
The Low Tire Pressure Light in the dash of your car comes on when the tire pressure monitoring system detects a tire low on air. However, it can also come on for other reasons as well. Here’s what you should know:
Primarily, this means that one of your tires is low. Check all four for the proper air pressure.
It can also mean that the spare tire is in use.
It can indicate a malfunction with the TPMS system.
The Low Tire Pressure Light may flash when the spare tire is first installed.
It will also flash if there’s a problem with the TMPS system.
