The tire pressure warning light has come on and stays on even after check all the tires and add air as needed. The manual says to take the vehicle to be serviced as this indicates a problem with the Tire Pressure Monitoring System. OK, no problem. However, I'm ready to take the vehicle in, but now there is an additional signal, a high-pitched tone that starts up each time I turn the wheels to the right. The sound does not occur when the wheels are straight or turned to the left. I have an appointment to have the vehicle seen, but before I do, can anyone tell me what this sound might indicate?

Hey hey, One if the Mods will probably jump in and suggest that you update your profile with your model year, mileage, auto or manual etc...that info can go a long way in helping with a diagnosis. Without any more info than what you divulged, I would guess the wheel bearing (hub assembly). You likely only hear the noise when you are turning due to lateral load being applied to the bearing. Is the sound a screechy metallic type of noise? Does it correspond to RPM ie. does the sound increase/decrease in volume and pitch based on speed? Someone around here should be able to confirm once we get a bit more info.

*Just realized you do have your year and trans specified. I originally posted from my phone and did not see that.* Still, your vehicle's mileage would help in this instance.
