Default Tire sensor problem

My tire sensor light is going off in my 08 2.3l. Any ideas why? im thinking maybe because it got cold. But its only like 45 at night and 65 or so during the day. I dont think it should be going off. Help please

45 and 65 are the temperatures out side not the air pressure?

Is the tire inflated like the side of the tire says

TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) indicates an under inflated condition in a tire. Check the tire pressure in all the tires as STL recommended. Many TPMS systems are set to cause a fault when a tire is only 2lbs under manufacture's door sticker recommendation.

I'm not a fan of these tire pressure systems at all. Too bad they're mandatory now.

As mentioned, I'm sure it's nothing, just a tire that's a little low. But even if it isn't, your '08 surely must still be under warranty...

ya thanks to Firestone and the ford exploder thats why we have tpms now? but if you where going to disable it you could remove it there jay, so fan or not i guess its for the stupid people out there who never look at sh!t on there car. just put key in and go types or people who dont know how to check the psi in a tire? like my wife last week she put in 1 qt oil in my work van she did not know how and put it in, so it went through the dip stick tube. took a good 20 minutes! lol
