Most newer vehicles come with a variety of important safety features, and that often includes low tire pressure warning lights. When the pressure sensor is triggered, a light will turn on and notify you that it is time to double-check your tires. Here is a look at how this safety feature works and what you should do when the light goes on.

The vast majority of vehicles that come with tire pressure lights have a “direct” sensor system. That means there is a small device in each tire that physically monitors the air pressure and sends messages to the vehicle's primary processor. Indirect sensors track the speed and rotation of each wheel to determine if any are out of sync.

Driving with a tire that has low pressure is both dangerous and inefficient. If your tire pressure light has recently come on, then please visit Corley's Albuquerque Lincoln today to speak with one of our certified technicians.
