TPMS Light...What does this mean???

Question:My tire pressure warning light came on recently. What does that mean? Aeschbach Automotive Answer: It means that one or more of your tires has low air pressure. The dashboard warning light, which looks like a cross-section of a tire with some lines in it, comes on when the tire pressure is 20% below what the manufacturer recommends.

Some of the things that commonly throw a wheel out of alignment are slamming into a pothole, smiacking a cu ... read more
