As long as you have the correct tyre pressure , dont worry. The warning light depends on various factors

    There should be a row of buttons by the gearbox one of which has the tyre pressure symobol on, turn the key so that all symbols are lit but engine not yet started. press and hold the tyre button by gearbox, it should go amber and then eventually turn off . Let me know if this helped. If not then get it done by a Garage person

Reset tyre pressure warning light mini one


i have just had my tyre on the front right changed due to puncture, and now i have a warning light - low tyre pressure which is very annoying! I went to the mechanic and he told me he needs to reset the computer system and it will go away! is this correct? i have my doubts now as he was the same mechanic who changed my tyre and may have interfered with the sensors in the car.
Please help :(

Reset bmw 530 puncture warning light


The TPMS signal is not idetified by your vehicle,when a predetermine amount of air is not present the sensor turns off. When this sensor turns off .Your vehicle TPMS monitor notice it and turns the light on.Some vehicle needs the TPMS monitor to be reset.Others need to be turned on. Still others just needs a set amount of air pressure to turn on and driven in your case the TPMS monitor should detect the sensor and the light will turn off

Hi, my tyre pressure sensor came on indicating a puncture? I have felt the tyres over a 3 hr period, but no tyres are going soft. Could it be the sensor?


Try to inflate each tire to the same pressure and run it. If the light comes on after clearing it, then it could be a bad wheel speed sensor circuit.

But, be warned, that the car will sense even slight pressure irregularities over several miles based on wheel speed sensor data.

I have a orange warning light flasing on my mini cooper 51 plate and i do0nt no wat it is can u help?? the symbol has a (!) on it? there is a button with the exact same symbol under my handbrake


This is the tyre pressure indicator. It shows that one of the tyres is losing pressure through a calve leak or puncture, or can also be triggered after you get new tyres or rotate the tyres.

The method to re-set the tyre pressure warning light is as follows:

Turn the ignition to position 2 (ignition on but motor not started). Press and hold the button under the handbrake until the warning light on the dashboard comes on for several seconds. Start the engine. Drive the car normally for several minutes. This will cause the system to re-set to the current tyres and pressures you have. It will then only turn the warning light on if the pressures change - for example if you get a puncture.

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.

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!
