TPMS vague message?

Post by integralist » Fri Oct 12, 2018 7:30 pm

Hello, TPMS yellow warning shows all the time.

If I change dashboard screen to "Tyre Pressures" (just under that it says "bar"??) and the car is partially visible but covered by the message "Tyre pressures appears while driving'.

Not sure why that message appears instead of showing the tyre pressure for each individual tyre, nor what "bar" means?

I've filled the tyres up to what I think they should be (33) and a couple we're already 35. But I noticed one tyre doesn't have a cap valve so not sure if that randomly affects the TPMS.

Any ideas?

I should add, that message overlay appears even while driving.

1 bar = 14.5038 psi

... so you can change the units the system displays in?

Replace that missing tyre cap;
surprised you'd never heard of "bar"; appears on most tyre pressure gauges :D

Have you tried reset and calibrating them
Go into
Setting
Maintenance
Tyre
Reset
Yes
Then click the back button
Click back second time
scroll down to tyre pressures
Calibrate
Start

This should remove any warning lights you have for tyre pressures, if it comes back on you need to find what is causing it which should show which tyre is a problem on your TPM screen.

It may just be one of the tyres has dropped
