The Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) automatically recognises any changes in wheel positions. The vehicle must be stationary for 15 minutes during the wheel and tyre change, to make sure that the system can detect the change. After driving above 25 km/h (16 mph), any deflation warning should clear within approximately 5 minutes.


Re-inflate the tyre, within close proximity of the vehicle, following repairs to a full-size spare wheel fitted with tyre pressure monitoring. The TPMS warning lamp may illuminate if tyre inflation is not carried out within close proximity of the vehicle. Should this occur, re-inflate the tyre within 5 m of the vehicle. See TYRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) (YELLOW) and TYRE PRESSURES.


The full-size spare tyre's pressure should always be maintained at the highest recommended cold inflation tyre pressure for that tyre size. The recommended cold inflation tyre pressures are displayed on the tyre pressure label. The highest recommended pressure is usually for the rear tyres at a heavy load. See TYRE PRESSURES.

For information on the tyre pressures, refer to the label located at the base of the driver’s door opening. See TYRE PRESSURES.
