      exclamation mark means caution. if the tire pressure is low, the tire icon should light up, at least thats what it is in my dads porsche cayenne s.

      Cold air = loss of pressure. You can't buy a new car without TPMS.

      when the exclamation point comes up its usually followed by a message that tells you whats wrong.. mine was a faulty turn signal
