System Learning

The Tire Pressure Monitoring begins to "learn" the wheels after a wheel change, wheel transmitter replacement or update of the tire settings. During this process, the Tire Pressure Monitoring recognizes the tires and their locations. The on-board computer displays the message "TPM is learning, monitoring not act." .

The Tire Pressure Monitoring requires a certain amount of time to learn the wheels. During this time, the current tire pressures are not available on the on-board-computer:

  • The tire pressure warning light remains lit until all wheels have been learned.
  • The display of the tire pressure function of the on-board computer shows lines.
  • The required pressures for cold tires at 68 °F (20 °C) are indicated in the Info pressure display in the tire pressure menu.

Position and pressure information is displayed as soon as the Tire Pressure Monitoring has assigned the wheels identified as belonging to the vehicle to the correct wheel positions. The wheel learning process takes place exclusively when the vehicle is being driven (vehicle speed above 25 km/h (16 mph) ).

  • Check the tire pressure for all wheels on the "Info pressure" display.
  • Correct the tire pressure to the required pressure if necessary.
