What the Tire Pressure Light Is Telling You

A pressure sensor in a tire will let the vehicle's internal computer know if it is below a safe air pressure. If this is the case, a light will appear on the dashboard alerting the driver to the problem. In some cases, the actual tire pressure will appear instead.

If a tire is not properly inflated, it could cause it to wear faster, which costs a vehicle owner money. However, it is important to note that a tire can lose a pound of pressure for every 10 degrees the temperature falls during the course of several hours.

Therefore, if the temperature dropped significantly overnight, the tire may simply need time to warm up. If the light doesn't go off after driving to work or school, take it to our Subaru service center in Columbus, OH for assistance. This may make it possible to check both the tire and the sensor itself.
