Direct System (Tire Pressure Monitor)

CAUTION: Do not initialize the system while snow chains are attached.

NOTE: Each time a tire inflation pressure has been corrected or a wheel or tire has been changed, reset the system.

IMPORTANT: The system does not work correctly if it has not been reset; for example, a flat tire may be indicated even though the tire inflation pressures are correct. The system is inactive and cannot indicate a flat tire if a wheel without TPM electronics, such as a compact spare wheel, has been mounted, or if TPM is temporarily malfunctioning due to other systems or devices using the same radio frequency.

Reset:

  1. Start the engine.
  2. Lightly push button 1 on the turn indicator.
  3. Lever the turn indicator up or down repeatedly until the tire monitor symbol appears in the display, accompanied by the word "RESET".
  4. Press button 2 to confirm your choice of the Tire Pressure Monitor. In the display, "ACTIVE" will appear above "RESET".
  5. Press button 2 for approx. 5 seconds. In the display, "RESETTING" will now appear above "RESET".
  6. Drive the vehicle.

After driving a few minutes, the set inflation pressures in the tires are accepted as the target values to be monitored. The system reset is completed during your drive, and can be interrupted at any time. When driving resumes, the reset is continued automatically. The indicator lamp goes out after the system reset is completed.
