Question about 2006 Kia Sportage
Posted by Anonymous on
That usually means you have a tire or tires with low air pressure. Check the air pressure in all of your tires and make sure that they are at no more than the maximum psi rated on the sidewall of each tire. If the car has not been driven for an extended period of time, us the cold psi as your max. If the car has been driven for an hour or more, use the hot psi number. It it very important to understand these numbers because as the air heats up inside the tire, it expands increasing the pressure and as it cools down, it contracts to a lower pressure. Tires slowly lose air pressure over time which is normal but it can get down low enough to trigger the sensor and the light even the tire may be fine. Your tires should be within + or - 1 to 2 psi of each other and at or near the rated tire psi. If any or all are lower than the others, you should have them checked for damage or a puncture by a nail, screw, etc. A faulty sensor can also set the warning light which should be replaced and calibrated by a certified technician.
