    Understanding Your Tire Pressure Monitoring System

    Ford Fusion. Understanding Your Tire Pressure Monitoring System

    The tire pressure monitoring system measures pressure in your road tires and sends the tire pressure readings to your vehicle. You can view the tire pressure readings through the information display. The low tire pressure warning light will turn on if the tire pressure is significantly low.

Even if the light turns on and a short time later turns off, your tire pressure still needs to be checked.
