Why Your Tire Pressure Monitoring System Will Light Up

Vehicles made after September 2007 automatically come with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) which alerts drivers to overinflated or underinflated tires. That being said, there are a couple of reasons that your monitoring system might light up on your dashboard.

Tires might become overinflated or underinflated with the change in temperature that summer and winter bring; heat causes the air in your tires to expand and cold causes the air to contract. Another reason that your tires might lose pressure is that your tires naturally lose small amounts of air over time. This will cause your tires to become underinflated, causing your TPMS to light up on your dashboard.

If you need your tire pressure checked, come to our service center at Bluebonnet Jeep and we'll be happy to check your tire pressure and add air so that your vehicle's tires are operating within a safe air pressure range.
