In this section you'll find information about, tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and recalibration through Infotainment system , your vehicle's Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) uses the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), sensors to indirectly check the tire pressure of all 4 tires while you are driving.
Tread circumference (rolling circumference) and vibration characteristics of individual tires, warns if there is a significant loss of pressure in one or more tires while the vehicle is moving, text warnings in the instrument cluster display if your vehicle has this display Infotainment system, the original benchmark pressure is the recommended maximum load cold tire inflation pressure.
The tires that come with your vehicle, door jamb ⇒ Tire inflation pressure, and store the new cold inflation pressures through the Infotainment system, which changes, benchmark pressure to match the current pressure of the tires on your vehicle ⇒ Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and recalibration through Infotainment system.
Recalibrating the TPMS to reset the benchmark cold tire inflation pressure is explained below ⇒ Tire, pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and recalibration through Infotainment system, incorrect tire pressures and/or underinflation can cause sudden tire failure, loss control, collision, serious personal injury even death.
When the warning symbol appears in the instrument cluster, stop inspect tires, incorrect tire pressure and/or underinflation can cause increased tire wear can affect, the handling of the vehicle stopping ability, incorrect tire pressures and/or underinflation can also lead to sudden tire failure, including a blowout and sudden deflation, causing loss vehicle control.
The driver is responsible for the correct tire pressures for all tires vehicle, recommended tire pressure values are listed on a sticker inside the driver door ⇒ Tire inflation pressure, the TPMS can only work correctly when all tires on the vehicle are filled correct, using incorrect tire pressure values can cause accidents or other damage.
The tires to the correct specified cold tire pressure values for the tires installed vehicle, always maintain correct cold tire inflation pressure so that TPMS can do its job, always inflate tires to the recommended and correct tire pressure before driving off, driving with underinflated tires causes them to flex (bend) more, letting them get too hot.
Resulting in tread separation, sudden tire failure, loss control, excessive speed and/overloading can cause heat buildup, sudden tire failure loss, if the tire pressure is too low or too high, the tires will wear prematurely vehicle, and at reduced speed to the nearest service station to check the tire pressure add air.
When replacing tires or wheel rims on vehicles equipped with TPMS always read heed, the information and all WARNINGS regarding ⇒ Tires wheels, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System must be recalibrated whenever you remove, remount or change any wheel or tire on the vehicle, even if reinstalled replacement.
Wheels and tires are identical to those that were removed and even if tire pressure does, not change ⇒ Tire inflation pressure, improper recalibration can cause the TPMS to give false warnings or to give no warning despite dangerously low tire pressure ⇒ Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and recalibration through Infotainment system, underinflation increases power consumption tire wear.
Do not rely solely on the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, sure they are properly inflated and have no signs of damage, such as punctures, cuts, cracks, when you take delivery of the vehicle, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System calibrated, factory-recommended cold tire inflation pressure for the tires on your vehicle, as shown label.
Inside the driver door ⇒ Tire inflation pressure, the system must be recalibrated through the Infotainment system whenever you remove, remount or change any wheel or tire on the vehicle, even if the reinstalled replacement wheels, tires are identical to those that were removed and even if the tire pressure does not change ⇒ Tire.
More than the pressure specified on the tire pressure label inside the driver door ⇒ Tire inflation, if the TPMS determines that the air pressure in at least one tire is too low, carefully check, pressure in all 4 tires with an accurate tire pressure gauge, if you have work done on your wheels or tires, inform the workshop that vehicle equipped.
With a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), new tires may expand slightly the first time they are driven at high speeds, which can trigger, only replace old tires with tires that have been approved by Volkswagen your vehicle type.
