TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM

WARNING

TPMS provides a low pressure warning and does not re-inflate your tires. Tire pressures should be checked regularly, when cold, using an accurate pressure gauge.

WARNING

TPMS can NOT register damage to a tire. Regularly check the condition of your tires.

CAUTION

When inflating tires, care should be taken to avoid bending or damaging the TPMS valve. Always confirm correct alignment of the inflation head to the valve stem.

NOTES

Non-approved accessories may interfere with the system. If this occurs, TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING FAULT is displayed in the Message center.

NOTES

Different types of tire may affect TPMS performance. Always replace tires in accordance with recommendations.

TPMS constantly monitors the tire pressure in each wheel.

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

Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires).

As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated. see TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) (YELLOW).

Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.

Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.

In addition to TPMS Yellow Warning lamp, see TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) (YELLOW), a warning message and the current pressure, is displayed in the Message center, below a graphic which shows which tire is under-inflated.

Vehicles supplied with 20 inch wheels also have a speed based TPMS system. If the vehicle is required to travel at speeds of over 155 mph (250 km/h), the tire pressures should be raised. See TIRE PRESSURES. Failure to do this may cause the warning message TIRE PRESSURES LOW FOR SPEED to be displayed in the Message center.

NOTES

Make sure to set the tire pressures to the correct pressure when the vehicle will be traveling at speeds of less than 155 mph (250 km/h).

Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly.

The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the low tire pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups for as long as the malfunction exists.

When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure, as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to function properly.
