    Dumbest warning light ever. It looks nothing like a tire, or anything else remotely helpful to identify the meaning behind it. It looks like an oil lamp.

    it's an exclamation point inside a bloated tire. Trying to design a universal symbol understood by anyone who drives a car is a task I don't want to be in charge of.

    I'm pretty sure the light means, "watch out, your about to trip on a horse shoe." That's what it looks like anyway.

    it's a broken sensor. all tires (including spare) are good. im not paying to replace it. don't really care to pull the light out. so i just get to see it flash every time i turn on my truck. you get used to it. . hell, i'd probably miss it if it went off at this point haha.

    i notice that if i correct my tire pressure after seeing this thing, it comes and goes. then i learned how to reset it... hold that button down under the steering column (makes sense to me)

    You can always cure it with a small piece of black electrical tape on the plastic cover.

    It's the gov't in your truck, aka the "Obama" light, because yes we can save the world with proper tire inflation.

    Check out the other threads on defeating the system or tricking it with a pvc pipe, sensor, and 30psi of air pressure.
