TPMS

Post by SteveO » Tue Jul 17, 2018 5:06 am

The car is new, it only has 3,000 miles on the clock. I took it for a long run and the Tyre Pressure Management System (TPMS) warning light came on. I have checked the Tyre Pressure in each tyre is at 36 psi, as per the book, Any ideas on how to cancel the warning?

Hi Steve0 .
A similar report was seen elsewhere by a new owner on this tpms problem.
It was recommended to try this, over inflate tyre with error message ( make sure it's the correct tyre) by approx 5lbs per square inch. Drive car for at least 1/2 to1 mile and see if error message is replaced by the new pressure. If it is not you will need to return car to dealer for attention.
If tyre shows the new higher pressure You Can reduce it to correct pressure and hopefully all will be well.
Good luck

i had the same issue when i replaced a punctured tyre.
i drove it for a while checked the tyre pressures again, and inflated the tyre to the readout of the other tyres, if that makes sense.
when they were cold, the tyre pressures were all the same
but after driving for a few miles, the new tyre was 3psi lower.
after inflation, the warning message went out.
