This happened to me the second day I got my car aparently they made it to be overly sensitive because they are using only nitrogen, that is not supposed to lose pressure in any temperature or condition so you might have a nail. I believe if you lose 2lbs of pressure it triggers it on, so you can put air to fill the rest of the tire if its low.

Do you think it took you longer to take a picture, upload it, and add an arrow than it would to just look in the manual?

Op, generally any lights that come on in your dash can be found in the owner's manual. I know sometimes it's 1st reaction with a new car is to immediately take it to the dealership. And I think some people get the notion that it is under warranty and doesn't cost me anything so why not?

It's a counter-agent though because you get the horse power, but you run on 4 flats.

Thanks!
It's an ass sensor, obv.

Warning: Brazilians ahead.
