35 psi is the assigned "maximum load" pressure for standard load tires and 41 psi is the assigned "maximum load" pressure for extra load tires.

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!

I have a Bmw 3 series e46 2001 I have a flat tyre. Engine management system on was not on before the flat tyre. Would the light come because of the flat tyre.


Not typically. If t he tire came apart and hit wiring or something related to the engine management system it is possible. Not likely but possible.

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 :(

What i believe is the run-flat symbol has come on... but how do i know it is in fact a puncture? The tyres appear to be fine and not even low on air.


They are uneven in pressure, check and adjust pressures as per manufacturer and reset tyre indicator as per your vehicle hand book. Cannot explain it here as there are different resets depending on model of BMW.

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.

RESET TYRE PRESSURE SENSOR ON LAGUNA COMPUTER


I had a new sensor fitted recently at a tyre centre, but after driving home one of the rear tyres disappeared off the display! I had them reset the whole system only to find it happened again soon afterwards. Just looked at the fuse panel (right hand side on UK cars, at end of dashboard), no 'reset' switch. However, I did pull out a few fuses to see if that worked. By pure luck, there is a fuse with a strange name (can't remember it now) that is like disconnecting the battery completely (it's a 10A fuse located 3rd down from the top). Plug it back in and hey presto, no more flat tyre warning light, and centre screen shows all 4 tyres correctly. Genius!!
