If your tire pressure light is illuminated, you need to take action. Driving with under-inflated tires can lead to increased fuel consumption and reduced vehicle handling. There are many reasons why the light may come on, but there is one thing that all of them have in common: the sooner you take care of it, the better. So, here are some of the most common reasons your tire pressure light is illuminated:

- The spare tire has not been removed.

If you don't use it, remove it! Of course, if a flat occurred and you've put the spare into action then that's a different story. You should still deflate that one to its proper psi and reinstall it as soon as you can.

- Your TPMS sensor batteries are dead/missing/low

It's sad to think that the battery could be dead on your tire pressure monitoring system, but it happens more often than you think. And if those batteries haven't been checked in a while (or ever) then that's something that'll need to be rectified.
