Why Does the Tire Pressure Monitor Light Come On When It Is Hot Outside?

Your tire pressure monitoring system alerts you to both low and high air pressures in your tires. High air pressure in tires causes damage to the crown of the tire.

Does Your Brake Pedal Need to be Repaired?


Pressing down on a brake pedal causes your brakes to be put into action. Your brake pedal needs to have a good connection with your brakes to work as it is supposed to and to help you stop your car as needed when you are driving.
