Tyre pressure monitoring system

WARNINGS:
The system does not relieve you of your responsibility to regularly check the tyre pressures.

The system will only provide a low tyre pressure warning. It will not inflate the tyres.

Do not drive on significantly under-inflated tyres. This may cause the tyres to overheat and fail.

Under-inflation reduces fuel efficiency, tyre tread life and may also affect your ability to drive the vehicle safely.

CAUTIONS:
Do not bend or damage the valves when you are inflating the tyres.

Have tyres installed by properly trained technicians.

The Deflation Detection System will alert you if there is a change of air pressure in any tyre. It does this by using the ABS sensors to detect the rolling circumference of the wheels. When the circumference changes, this indicates low pressure in a tyre, a warning message is displayed in the information display and the message indicator will illuminate. See Information messages.

Apart from a too low tyre pressure or a damaged tyre, the following situations can affect the rolling circumference: Х Vehicle load is uneven.

Х When using a trailer or travelling up and down an incline.

Х Using snow chains.

Х Driving on soft surfaces such as snow or mud.

Note: The system will still function correctly, but there may be an increased detection time.

If a low pressure warning message is displayed in the information display, check the tyre pressures as soon as possible and inflate them to the recommended pressure. See Technical
specifications.

If this happens frequently, have the cause determined and rectified as soon as possible.

System reset

Note: Do not reset the system when the vehicle is moving.

Note: You should reset the system following any adjustment to the tyre pressures or any changing of tyres.

Note: Turn the ignition on.
