The tire pressure warning light is often overlooked by most car owners because it is not as common as an oil change light or check engine light. However, the tire pressure light can indicate an immediate need for Mercedes servicing if the tire pressure sensor is malfunctioning or if the tires need to be repaired due to under inflation.
The tire pressure light can appear in several different manners, each indicating a different problem. If the tire light comes on your Mercedes dash and stays lit in a steady state, that usually means that one of your tires has a low pressure level and you should stop soon to check it. If the tire pressure warning comes on and flashes, that could mean that fluctuating temperatures are causing your tire pressure to change. It could also indicate that your tire pressure is getting low and needs to be checked soon. If your tire warning light flashes and then stays lit, that means that your tire pressure system is malfunctioning and you should schedule a Mercedes service and inspection with your local Brandon mechanic to fix the problem.
According to Bridgestone Tires, there are several reasons why maintaining the proper tire pressure is important to your safety when operating your vehicle:
Maintaining proper tire inflation is essential to vehicle handling, overall tire performance, and load carrying capability. A properly inflated tire will reduce tread movement, reduce rolling resistance, and increase water dispersion. Reduced tread movement gives the tire a longer tread life. Reduced rolling resistance, the force required to roll a loaded tire, results in increased fuel efficiency. Increased water dispersion decreases the possibility of hydroplaning.
