If you receive a leaking alert, please note how much air is left in your tire. If you are running 100 PSI (normal) and the alert has come on at 85 psi, you may decide to drive to the next rest stop. If the pressure drops significantly or more rapidly, cautiously bring the vehicle to a safe, off-road location to check the offending tire. Alternatively, if you run 100 PSI and the alert has come on at 104 PSI, continue to monitor that tire position to make sure the pressure does not continue to drop. Some leaking alerts occur when the tire pressure increases rapidly, then rapidly decreases. What can cause this? Road debris, pot hole, or several “bumps in the road”.
If you receive a low pressure alert, just as with leaking, note how much air is left in your tire. If the tire is dangerously low, or at 0 psi, find a safe place to pull the vehicle over and check the offending tire.
If you receive a high pressure alert, cautiously bring the vehicle to a stop at a safe location and check the offending tire. If the high pressure is “within reason” you may need to adjust your baseline pressures. Not sure what to do, call us!
If you receive a high temperature alert, cautiously “get off the road” & determine the cause of the overheating. In most cases, this will be due to a brake caliper that is sticking or a bearing which has overheated.
