The low pressure indicators in some vehicles today remind me of the old "idiot check engine" light, could be overheating, could be oil, could be battery??? Handy as they are when the pressure in one of your tires is low, it doesn't let you know what tire it is. Unfortunately, the only way to tell is with a trusty tire pressure gauge at the valve stem...

usually the one with the nail stuck in it. . easy to check air pressure odds are 1 in 4 that it will be the first one you check.

On my wife's Liberty the EVIC tells you which tire needs air.

If you have a JK there is a sensor in all 5 tires. Never forget the spare!

Yeah, some go the extra mile and tell the tire that needs attention. But not all of them...

I have a friend who had his light come on. He checked all the tires and eventually ended up back at the dealer ( a new vehicle still under warranty). The dealer also couldn't find out why the light was on. Then they checked the spare, it had been the culprit all the time.
