What does the tire pressure Warning Light mean?

A: The tire pressure Warning Light is located ...

The tire pressure Warning Light is located on your instrument panel. When the tire pressure monitor system (TPMS) detects that one or more of your tires has insufficient air pressure, the tire pressure Warning Light will illuminate. If this is the case, inflate your tires to the necessary pressure level as soon as possible. If the light flashes for a minute before staying on, then there is an issue with the TPMS. Tip Like all warning lights, the tire pressure Warning Light will briefly illuminate when your vehicle is turned on. The light is only a problem if it stays lit when the engine is running.
