TYRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (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 may lead 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 may lead 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. Rigid inflation wands increase the risk of excess leverage and sideways pressure on the valve.

NOTES

Non-approved accessories may interfere with the system. If this occurs, the instrument panel displays the message TYRE PRESSURE MONITORING 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. Temporary-use spare wheel is not monitored. The temporary-use spare wheel tyre pressure should be regularly monitored by the driver. See TEMPORARY-USE SPARE WHEEL AND TYRE CHANGE.

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

At each tyre change, a special service kit is required for each TPMS valve.

The tyre pressures should be checked regularly when the tyres are cold, and adjusted 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 conditions. See TYRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) (YELLOW) and TYRE PRESSURES.

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