Re: tyre pressure reset process

I am only saying this from memory so totally open to correction, but I think there are 6 buttons on the right of the dash, I think one on the bottom row has a picture of a tyre profile (it may even say reset I can't remember).


I think you just press and hold for a few seconds, but like I say, that is just from memory so could be wrong.

Re: tyre pressure reset process

I have yet to take delivery of my new Tipo, but when I test drove the demonstrator, like @stromonoff says, I seem to remember seeing a Tyre Pressure reset button down below the right hand stalk on the dashboard (just above where your right knee is while driving). It was in the same location on my Punto Easy+.

Not having my Tipo yet, I'm not sure of the exact process but normally, if all the tyre pressures are correct then it should just be a case of pushing the button with the ignition on/engine running until you hear an audible beep. It'll either reset the system, or may put a message up in the dash display for you to confirm the reset. That should reset the system but if it wont reset or comes back on then there is either a fault or you have a puncture.

As I say, I'm yet to take delivery of mine, so I stand to be corrected but I am sure that @JTD_Liam or someone else who already has a Tipo will be able to either confirm or correct what I have said.

Re: tyre pressure reset process

As others said, check pressures are correct then with ignition on and car stationary press and hold the tyre pressure reset button above your right knee until the car beeps.
