Why is the tire pressure warning light on?

Today’s cars come equipped with a warning light that indicates when your tire pressure drops 20% below the manufacturer recommended PSI (pounds per square inch.) A pressure this low creates a safety hazard by decreasing traction and causing the tire to overheat which can lead to tire failure. It also wears your tires unevenly which significantly shortens their life span. Aside from low pressure, a dead battery in the wheel sensor may also cause the warning light.
