Poor Sensors Could Result in Dashboard Lights Coming On

In many vehicles, each tire has a direct pressure sensor inside of it. When the sensor detects that the tire's pressure is too low, a light will appear on the dashboard. In some cases, this means that you need to find a service center and refill it with proper levels.

However, another possibility is that the sensor inside of the tire is faulty. To test the accuracy of the sensor, manually check the pressure inside each of your vehicle's tires. If it shows that they are properly inflated, there is likely an issue with the sensor as opposed to the tire.

No matter what the problem with your vehicle may be, you should never ignore a dashboard light. At a minimum, you should take it to our expert mechanics at Bill Kidd’s Toyota for service. This may make it possible to diagnose the problem and fix it before it gets worse.
