Reactivating the tire inflation pressure monitor

The tire inflation pressure monitor must be reactivated in the following situations:

  • If you have changed the tire inflation pressure.
  • If you have replaced the wheels or tires.
  • If you have installed new wheels or tires.

Using the tire placard on the driver's door B-pillar or, if available, the inside of the fuel filler flap, make sure the tire inflation pressure of all four tires is correct.

Press "forward" or "back" button on the multifunction steering wheel repeatedly until the standard display menu appears in the multifunction display.

Press "up" or "down" arrow button repeatedly until you see the current tire inflation pressures for each tire appear in the multifunction display or the following message appears in the multifunction display:

TIRE PRES. DISPLAY
APPEARS AFTER
DRIVING A FEW
MINUTES

If you are transporting a deflated tire in the vehicle, do not activate the tire inflation pressure monitor until:

  • the deflated tire is no longer in the vehicle
  • you have inflated the tire to the correct tire inflation pressure
  • Press the reset button "R" on the instrument cluster.

The following message will appear in the multifunction display:

MONITOR CURRENT
TIRE
PRESSURES?

  • Press the "+" button.

The following message will appear in the multifunction display:

TIRE PRES. MONITOR
REACTIVATED

The tire inflation pressure monitor will now monitor the tire inflation pressure values of all four tires.

The following message will appear in the multifunction display:

TIRE PRES. DISPLAY
APPEARS AFTER
DRIVING A FEW
MINUTES.

This display appears until the individual tire inflation pressure values are matched with the tires. The individual values are then displayed.

If you wish to cancel activation:

  • Press the "-" button.

If one of the following messages appears in the multifunction display:

TIRE PRES. MONITOR
REACTIVATE AFTER
CORRECTING PRESSURE

  • Check the tire inflation pressure and correct them if necessary.
  • Reactivate the tire inflation pressure monitor.
