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.

The system may take longer to detect low pressure in the tyres if you have fitted snow chains.

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 system monitors the pressure in the tyres using sensors located on the wheels and a receiver located in your vehicle.

When the system detects low pressure in the tyres, a warning message is displayed in the information display. See Information messages.

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.

Checking the tyre pressures

Note: If the tyre pressures are greater than or equal to 3.3 bar (48 lbf/in²), you will see the + symbol below the pressure value. The system only measures pressure up to 3.3 bar (48 lbf/in²). The + symbol indicates that the tyre pressures may be higher.

Note: Type 3 instrument clusters have a slightly different menu structure. Select Settings first to access Information.

1. Press the right arrow button on the steering wheel to enter the main menu.

2. Highlight Information with the up and down buttons and press the right arrow button.

Setting the vehicle load

Note: Type 3 instrument clusters have a slightly different menu structure. Select Settings first to access Setup.

Correct tyre pressure settings depend on vehicle load. See Technical specifications. The system can only detect low pressure if you have entered the current vehicle load.

1. Press the right arrow button on the steering wheel to enter the main menu.

2. Highlight Setup with the up and down buttons and press the right arrow button.

3. Highlight Tyre Pressures with the up and down buttons and press the right arrow button.

4. Highlight the desired setting and press the OK button to confirm the setting.
