Why Am I Seeing the MINI Cooper Tire Pressure Light?

Is the tire pressure light illuminated on your dash? If your MINI is driving normally and your tires are properly inflated, the issue could be the Tire Pressure Monitoring System. When the TPMS is working incorrectly, the light turns on even if air pressure is acceptable. A broken tire pressure sensor could be to blame. MINI of Escondido’s service center near Carlsbad can diagnose and repair the problem using OEM parts!

When Do I Need New MINI Cooper Tires?

One of quickest ways to tell if you need new tires is the penny test. Place a penny between the treads of your car’s tires. If the top of Lincoln’s head is visible, the treads are worn and the tire needs replaced. If part of Lincoln’s head is covered, your tire still has more than 2/32 of an inch of tread depth. Other signs to look for include:

  • Cracked sidewalls
  • Blisters on the tire’s surface
  • Shaking even on smooth driving surfaces
  • Uneven tire wear
