SISTEMA DE MONITORIZACIÓN DE LA PRESIÓN DE LOS NEUMÁTICOS (TPMS)

WARNING

The Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) provides a low pressure warning and does not re-inflate the tyres. Tyre pressures should be checked regularly, using an accurate pressure gauge when the tyres are cold. Failure to do so could result in an accident, leading to serious injury or death.

WARNING

The TPMS cannot register damage to a tyre. Regularly check the condition of the tyres, especially if the vehicle is driven off-road. Failure to do so could result in an accident, leading to serious injury or death.

CAUTION

When inflating tyres, care should be taken to avoid bending or damaging the TPMS valves. Always make sure that the inflation head is correctly aligned to the valve stem.

CAUTION

To avoid damage to the TPMS valves, it is recommended not to use rigid tyre inflation wands. Using rigid inflation wands increases the risk of excess leverage and sideways pressure on the valve.

NOTES

Non-approved accessories may interfere with the TPMS. If this occurs, the instrument panel displays the message Tyre Pressure Monitoring System fault.

NOTES

Different types of tyres may affect the performance of the TPMS. Always replace the tyres in accordance with recommendations.

The TPMS constantly monitors the tyre pressure in each wheel, including the full-size spare wheel. Temporary-use spare wheels are not monitored.

Wheels fitted with a TPMS can be visually identified by the external metal lock nut and valve (1). All Jaguar Land Rover non-TPMS wheels have a rubber valve fitted (2).

NOTES

A special service kit is required when changing a tyre fitted with a TPMS valve.

Check the tyre pressures regularly when the tyres are cold, and adjust as necessary. The presence of a TPMS does not remove the need to check the tyre pressures as part of a vehicle safety check.

The tyre pressure warning lamp illuminates when one or more of the tyres are significantly under-inflated. Stop and check the tyres as soon as possible. Inflate the tyres to the recommended pressure for the vehicle's loading condition. See SISTEMA DE MONITORIZACIÓN DE LA PRESIÓN DE LOS NEUMÁTICOS (TPM) (AMARILLO) and PRESIÓN DE INFLADO DE LOS NEUMÁTICOS.

The TPMS also monitors the full size spare tyre pressure. If the pressure for the spare tyre is incorrect, the instrument panel displays the Check Spare Tyre Pressure message and the TPMS warning lamp illuminates.
