Tyre pressure monitoring

Action in the event of warning for low tyre pressure

Обновления 7/23/2018

When the tyre pressure monitoring system, Indirect Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (ITPMS) gives a warning, the tyre pressure in one or more of the car's tyres is too low and action is required.

P5-1507 Symbol TPMS

Check and rectify the tyre pressure when the indicator symbol for the system is illuminated and the Tyre pressure low message is shown.

Switch off the car.

Check the tyre pressure in all four tyres with a tyre pressure gauge.

Inflate the tyres to the correct pressure as indicated on the tyre pressure label on the door pillar on the driver's side.

Perform calibration of the system via the centre display after tyre pressure adjustment.

Note that the indicator symbol does not extinguish until the low tyre pressure has been rectified and new calibration has been performed.

Примечание

To avoid incorrect tyre pressure, the pressure should be checked on cold tyres. "Cold tyres" means the tyres are the same temperature as the ambient temperature (approx. 3 hours after the car has been driven). After a few kilometres of driving, the tyres warm up and the pressure increases.

Примечание

  • After a tyre has been inflated, always refit the dust cap in order to avoid damage to the valve from gravel, dirt, etc.
  • Only use plastic dust caps. Metal dust caps can rust and become difficult to unscrew.

Предупреждение

  • Incorrect tyre pressure may lead to tyre failure, which could result in the driver losing control of the car.
  • The system cannot indicate sudden tyre damage in advance.
