Seat Leon >> Tyre pressure control system: carry out basic adjustments

SEAT Leon Service and Repair Manual / Maintenance / Description of work / Tyre pressure control system: carry out basic adjustments

NOTICE The basic adjustment of the tyre control indicator should only be carried out after correcting the inflation pressure values of the tyres.

If no pressure loss and tyre damage are found after a tyre pressure warning, the "false alarm" can be rectified by a basic setting.

The tyre control system indicator uses the ABS sensors to compare the number of rotations, and with it the perimeter of the tread surface of each of the wheels. The tyre control system indicator will light up when the tread surface perimeter of one of the wheels changes.

The tread surface perimeter changes when:

  • The pressure in a tyre is insufficient
  • the tyre has damage to its surface
  • the vehicle is loaded on only one side
  • the wheels of one axle suffer greater wear, for example when towing a trailer or going up or down long slopes
  • the snow chains are attached
  • the emergency wheel is fitted
  • one wheel is changed on an axle

The tyre pressure monitoring warning lamp has a yellow lamp -1- in the dash panel insert.

Maintenance

The changes carried out are then saved automatically when closing the menu.

Maintenance

Carry out basic adjustment: Vehicles without multifunction touchscreen
