The warning light will illuminate when the pressure in the tyre varies from the pre-set value. As it is an amber light, you should check your tyres at the soonest opportunity. A change in temperature can cause the air pressure to increase and trigger the warning light. A manual adjustment of pressure, for example changing to a ‘fully loaded’ setting can also cause the light to come on. If you change your tyre pressure, you should refer to the owner’s manual and re-set the tyre pressure system.
Please refer to the operating manual – as a general guide, you should check the tyres ensuring there is no damage or foreign objects puncturing the carcass. Using an airline, reset the tyre pressure to the desired setting. Once the pressures are set and you are satisfied there are no punctures, you can press the reset button. Refer to the owner’s manual for the location, but it is usually located in the glove box or accessed through the media unit.

This can be a maximum of 19,000 miles or two years.
