Valve caps

I havent had a new car for a while and I like to check my tire pressures, I realize the sensors monitor the tires but the valve caps have green things on them, does that mean pressire is good, do they change to say red if theres a problem??

You are going to have to be more specific here with pics as to what you are talking about.

It just means that the tires are inflated with nitrogen which is very stable due to changes in temperature.
