FULL-SIZE SPARE WHEEL AND TIRE CHANGE

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

NOTES

Re-inflate the tire, within close proximity of the vehicle, following repairs to a full size spare wheel fitted with tire pressure monitoring. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) warning lamp may illuminate if tire inflation is not carried out within close proximity of the vehicle. Should this occur, re-inflate the tire within 5 m of the vehicle. See TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) (YELLOW) and Linked procedure not present at the moment.

NOTES

The full size spare tire's pressure should always be maintained at the maximum pressure for normal load conditions, as stated on the tire placard label. Failure to comply with the maximum pressure for normal load conditions activates the TPMS warning lamp for the spare wheel and tire assembly. Similarly, a stored, punctured wheel and tire assembly activate the TPMS warning lamp until the puncture is repaired and the tire is correctly inflated. See TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) (YELLOW).
