SOURCE: i have a tyre warning

Hi,
After you have inflated all tyres to the correct pressures, Turn ignition key to position 2 , and find the "Set" button. Press this for 20 seconds , and the warning should dissapear.

It spots a difference in rotation from the ABS sensors, and issues a warning if it is significantly different.

SOURCE: run flat tyre warning light is on i have checked tyre pressure

This will only come on when a tyre has dropped in pressure (not spare). It work on the principle that a tyre with less air has a smaller rolling circumference and therefore a different wheel speed. This is then monitored against other signals from other wheels and determined that a loss in pressure has occured.

If all tyre pressures seem ok, there could be a chance of a small unoticeable leak and would require a bath test. This is when the tyre is dipped in water and bubbles would appear where the puncture is.

Ultimately the system may just need to be reset, or has incorrectly been reset from a tyre change. For this you just press and hold the TPC button (located on the centre console above the gearstick - looks like a flat tyre with an exclamation) turn on the ignition to position 2 and the light will come on re then yellow,go out, come back on yellow. When it comes back on yellow it re-initializing the system. You can let go of the button and after 20 odd seconds the light will go out for the final time, completing the reset.

If the light continues to come on after the reset then you definitely have a puncture somewhere!

Hope this helps!

Electronic speedo is under reading 20 to 30kms an hour. Tyres recently changed ? seemed to start from then ? Hand brake light came on intermittantly Replaced the sensor unit by the gear box with one...


to get the speedo right you will need to fit the original size tyres with the correct speed rating which conforms to the certificate of homoglonation ,deviate from this and this is the problem you get also the vehicle will not pass the annual vehicle mechanical inspection because the tyres are not whats on the original certificate

My tire pressure sensor will not turn off. It's


I believe your tire calls for 32PSI. Try to setting it to 36PSI and starting the car to see if it resets. If it does, you can let the extra air out. Sometimes a difference of 2-3 PSI from the set value won't reset it.

Some vehicles also require being driven at speeds above 40mph for about 15 minutes before the light will reset

Dash warning light has come up on my vw eos, looks kinda like a horsehoe with an exclamation mark, any ideas?


if yellow this is most likely your tyre inflation indicator warning.
this means that one or more of your tyres has defated or inflated outside expected limits (do not worry)
1. check your tyre pressures are correct.
2. switch on the engine and let light come on.
3. press and hold the reset button with the same horseshoe icon which is situated near your gear lever in the middle console after several seconds the light should go and and your tyre pressure warning system is reset and ready for any change in prssure. if this does not work consult your nearest certified VW dealer they will be happy to assist.

Had DTC warning light come on on my 120i (2005 reg). Without prompting dealer contacted BMW who agreed to pay for part and half the labour as it seems to be a common problem for 04-06 models.
