Tpms

Hi guys, I have a 2017 Tipo lounge tjet that I purchase recently and have a little query about the tpms. Itís not displaying any numbers on the dash on the tpms display and I was told that this version of the car only has the warning light which goes off the rotation of the wheel? I just wanted to check if this is the case as I find it a bit strange that theyíd put the display on the dash and not include the function to actually see the pressure?
Cheers.

Re: Tpms

That correct it has indirect tpms that monitor's tyres via the abs sensor rotation speed rather then a sensor in the wheel its self

It's a cheap way of complying with the law, that's all it is

Re: Tpms

Thanks guys, so there’s no point to the display? Or will it tell me which Tyre needs attention? Seems completely pointless!

Re: Tpms

Nope, won't tell you which tyre it is. You'll need to check it with a pressure guage.

It does pick up a tyre with reduced pressure, its best to carry a pressure gauge to check which one is going down.

As said it just states check tyre pressures... you have to check all four with a gauge. And Iím also convinced it goes off after a set time or mileage if you donít reset it once in a while. Iíve had mine go off twice in 12 months and all tyres were fine...
