Can You Rely Only On the Tire Pressure Monitor Light?

Just as in any other safety system in your car, the tire pressure monitoring system can fail to notify you of danger. Sensors are subject to failure, so are tire pressure indicator lights on your dash. Most tire pressure monitoring systems inform you of low tire pressures when the tire is 25% lower than the recommended pressure.

You should personally monitor your tire pressure at least once per month with an accurate air pressure gauge. The tire pressure monitor system is not designed as a cure-all solution to tire woes. The system will fail you eventually—all systems do. Take the initiative and check your air pressure regularly. Your safety and the safety of your passengers depends on you.

At Earthycars in Williston, we monitor your tire pressures during every service. If we find any irregularities, we let you know.
