All the light come on when I first start it but they go away
Dodge Mechanic: Gary, Technician replied 11 months ago

that is the low tire pressure light

it will come on if a tire pressure is a little lower than the others

usually adjusting all 4 tires to 32 pounds and driving it should fix that issue

if it still comes on then usually one of the sensors in one of the wheels is bad

All the tires are blown up to 32 the cars just no accelerating it's the 3rd time it's happened
Dodge Mechanic: Gary, Technician replied 11 months ago

then i would have a shop pull the trouble codes in the computers if it is not accelerating correctly there can be a code set for possible traction control which will reduce the engine power

It's had a bad tire sensors for 3 months why would it just be an issue now
Dodge Mechanic: Gary, Technician replied 11 months ago

hard to say why now unless its reading 0 PSI and activating reduced power

fixing the bad sensor should fix this issue
