Check with the dealer for the exact pressure, but if you inflate all four to 32 PSI, it will be safe to drive.
You should be able to buy an owner's manual at the dealer's parts dept, it will give you the maintenance schedule and other useful info as well.
Cars with the engine in the rear, like the Old Beetle, required very low pressure in the front tires (about 15 PSI) to make the handling safe, but the New Beetle is front-engined and needs about 32 PSI all around.

In the RPM panel there is a yellow horseshoe shaped symbol with an exclamation mark thru it. What is this?


That is the low tire light. One or more of your tires is low. If you look inside the drivers door you should see a tire inflation sticker. Check all four tires and make sure they are inflated to what the stickers says they should be.

If only one tire is low it probably has a leak. If all four are low it might be the weather (lower temperatures = lower pressure).

One all the tires have been checked and filled to the proper inflation drive the vehicle on the freeway for approximately 10 minutes. The light should go out.

All this info is also in you owners manual.

2007 tiburon exclamation point with a horse shoe around it


The little horse shoe-looking looking thing is actually supposed to be a cross-section of a tire. That would be your Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) trying to tell you to check the pressure in your tires because it has determined that one or more of them are low.

This is covered in the Owner's Manual.

Light is on that looks like it has a exclamation in it


It is a tire pressure monitor lights. You can also refer to your owners manual. What it is trying to say is that one of your tire pressure is low and to fix this, just bring your tire pressure back to manufacture recommendation.

If it looks like the image below, it's a low tire-pressure warning. Check your tire pressures to make sure they are set to the pressures recommended by BMW (there's a sticker to the right, on the inside of the driver-side door frame). That sticker will give recommended tire pressures for front and rear tires.

There should be a button in your center console (in front of the gear shifter) with this same image on it -- hold down that button for 5 seconds to see if it resets the indicator light.

Tire pressure monitoring light is on


This means that the tire pressure monitoring system has detected one tire low on air via a difference in rounds per minute of a wheel using the wheel speed sensor, over several miles.

Try to correct by inflating all tires to 32 psi or the recommended tire pressure when cold, according to the sticker on the inside of the door or inside of glove compartment or in the owner's manual.

Check tires for evidence of a leak, or look for a nail that may have lodged in the tread of the tire.

Follow instructions in manual for erasing the tire pressure monitoring light and resetting it.

Every model and make and year. potentially, has different procedures for this, but it should be in the manual.

Have 1999 Mustang V6 with 15'' wheels. There is no sticker for tire pressure. Owner's manual says to see sticker. Ford tech support website says info no longer available?! What pressure should I use?


check the max pressure rating on your tires. Itill be hard to see but you will find it around the beed near the tire size. I would put them about 5 psi lower than the max rating to be safe. I would gess somewear around 35 to 45 psi.

The door sticker is unreadable. what is the correct tire pressure? We don't have the owner's manual.


the correct tire pressure is not necessarily vehicle specific. If you look on the sidewall of the tire there will be the pressure specification for that specific tire.

Have 08 tahoe dont know how to reset sensor


I assume you want to know the correct tire pressure. Look both under the fuel fill lid and on the drivers door jamb for the sticker that tells you this data. Order an owners manuel for the car as there is a lot of info you might be interested in

Tire pressure optimization setting


Look for a sticker on the drivers door panel. It will tell you what pressure to set for the tires. The owners manual may also contain this information. It is normal for a radial tire to look a little flat.
