Question Low tire pressure light

My low tire pressure light on my '08 V6 mustang came on yesterday. still on today. None of the tires look low. I stopped at a station today and checked the pressures and all are within limits..
any ideas?

Might wanna double check them. Sometimes they go off if its been hot, then cold all of a sudden.

Try putting a little air in the tires and see if it goes off. It is possible you might have a bad sensor.

Man that stupid light is the only thing I hate about My 07GT. I am not kidding if it is off by a couple of pounds it will set it off. Make sure you have the exact tire pressure as the label on the inside driver door label. I had the same problem for a while and come to find out the dumb dealer I bought the car from was putting the wrong tire pressure in. I told the 2nd Ford dealer I had been too I had had it in like 3times for the light and they just laughed. All they had to do is reset the sensors and put the right air pressure in. I know it is a safety feature but seriously, think about it. If you have a slow leak it not a big deal unless you are dumb enough to keep driving on it and not get it fixed. If you have a major leak or any other issue that stupid thing is useless because your already stuck on the side of the road.

One more thing I didn't see anyone mention in any of the other replies is if it is cold were you live, sometimes the light will be on till you drive it for a couple of miles, far enough for the tires to warm up. It should then go out. I would just take it to one of the nearest ford dealers if you are still having problems after the things I mentioned. If your car is new enough it should still be under warranty it won't cost you anything but a hour or two. From what they told me last time I was there, those stupid senors just have to be reset sometimes if they won't go out.
