Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Seeing the TPMS light? Here’s what to do.
The correct tire pressure is displayed on the sticker on the driver’s door jamb. Inflate your tires to those specifications, not to the number on your tires.
If you see the TPMS light on your instrument panel or the message "tire pressure too low" in the multi-function display, check all tires and inflate the low tire(s) to the correct pressure as soon as possible.
After inflating your tires, you’ll need to reset the TPMS light
Press the menu button on the multi-function steering wheel until you see the screen labeled “Settings” on the multi-function display in your instrument cluster.
- Press the down arrow to scroll to “Tire pressure”—press OK.
- Make sure “Store” is selected—press OK.
- Use the down arrow button to scroll down to “Confirm”—press OK.
- You’ll see the message, “Tire pressures stored.”
Cooler temperatures may cause a warning to appear and then disappear as the tires warm up. This is a good reminder to check and adjust the tires to the proper inflation pressure.
- When the warning symbol appears in the instrument cluster, stop and inspect the tires.
- Incorrect tire pressure and/or underinflation can cause increased tire wear and can affect the handling of the vehicle and stopping ability.
- Incorrect tire pressures and/or underinflation can also lead to sudden tire failure, including a blowout and sudden deflation, causing loss of vehicle control.
- The driver is responsible for the correct tire pressures for all tires on the vehicle. The recommended tire pressure values are listed on a sticker inside the driver door.
- The TPMS can only work correctly when all tires on the vehicle are filled to the correct cold tire inflation pressure specified for the tires installed on the vehicle.
- Using incorrect tire pressure values can cause accidents or other damage. Always inflate the tires to the correct specified cold tire pressure values for the tires installed on the 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, and loss of control.
- Excessive speed and/overloading can cause heat build-up, sudden tire failure and loss of control.
- If the tire pressure is too low or too high, the tires will wear prematurely and the vehicle will not handle well.
- If the tire is not “flat” and you do not have to change a wheel immediately, drive carefully and at reduced speed to the nearest service station to check the tire pressure and add air as required.
- When replacing tires or wheel rims on vehicles equipped with TPMS always read and heed the information and all WARNINGS regarding Tires and wheels.
