Don’t ignore that tire pressure warning light. Check the tire pressure and add air, if needed. If it doesn’t go off, see a Wichita auto care tire specialist at Tracy’s Automotive.
You piled the family in the car this morning to go to the Gingerbread Village at Exploration Place, but when you turned on the car, your tire pressure light came on and wouldn’t go off. Now you’re wondering if you can ignore the light or if one of your tires is about to go flat.
If it makes you feel any better, you probably weren’t alone this morning. When temperatures drop, the pressure in tires also drops – by about 1 to 2 PSI for every 10 degree drop in temperature, according to auto.howstuffworks.com.
But knowing the light is on because of the cold weather doesn’t mean you can ignore it. Even if the light goes off when the day warms up, your tires are still going to be somewhat low, auto.howstuffworks.com says. And, the light could indicate something’s really wrong, like a leak in one of your tires.
What’s a driver to do? The best thing, auto.howstuffworks.com says, is to check the pressure and, if needed, add some air. If your pressure was okay or you add air and the light doesn’t go off, then the system that triggers the light might need recalibrating. In that case, your best bet is to see a Wichita auto care tire pro like the trusted Wichita auto care tire technicians at Tracy’s Automotive.
