Hi all,
  Well, it's that time of year again - cooler temperatures, a hint of fall in the air, and Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems that display warning symbols making you think you've got a tire that's low in pressure. This may be one of those technologies that's a good news/bad news situation. This is the second time in the past year I've had the warning lights come on, only to find out my tire pressure is just fine, thank you very much. But, it would appear the cooler temperatures cause the sensors to think a tire is low in air. Odd. Anyone else had this happen to them? As with the last time, I simply reset the sensor, and continue on after double-checking the tires.
  Now on the other hand, I LOVE the new windshield wiper technology that senses when rain drops are on the windhsield and turns on the wipers and adjusts the speed accordingly. Technology - sometimes you love it, sometimes you don't (and I work in a technology field!)
