It has been suggested that this symbol on your dashboard represents a low tire on your vehicle. If this light is visible then you are advised to take a look at your tire pressure and make sure that it is correct. In the event of the letters "TPMS" also being illuminated with the symbol, you should also inquire into the state of your tire pressure monitoring system in the vehicle.

This warning light could mean some of the following things: That the tires on your vehicle need inflating, or that they need replacing.

  • How to replenish the tire pressure

If the tire is no longer adequately inflated, you will be required to replenish it with the correct amount of pressure. You can do this yourself or you can enlist the help of a local garage or car mechanic to do it for you. Of course, the expenses will be greater to have it done for you, but the advantage is that it should be done properly and safely.

If the tire needs to be replaced, you will need to use your spare or alternatively order new tires. It is probably best that you hire a professional mechanic to do this for you or at least help you to do it yourself if preferred.

  • What should happen when pressure is replenished

Once the tire pressure has been returned to the correct level, or the tires have been replaced, the light should go off. If it doesn't, you should consult a car mechanic on how to get the light switched off again.

Although this technology is advantageous and helpful in monitoring tire pressure you should still make sure to check your tire pressure manually on a regular basis.
