Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Tyre monitor indicator lamp

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Tyre monitor display
Symbol is lit up Possible cause   Correction
It is lit up and an audible warning is given:
the tyre pressure of one or more tyres has reduced considerably in comparison to the tyre pressure value set by the driver, or the tyre has suffered structural damage. In addition, a corresponding text message may be displayed on the instrument cluster.
Do not drive on! Reduce speed immediately! Stop the vehicle as soon as it is possible and safe to do so. Avoid swerving manoeuvres and heavy braking!
Check all tyres and the tyre pressures. Replace the damaged tyre.
Constantly lit:
Fault in the system.
If the tyre pressure is correct, but the indicator lamp fails to go out after the ignition is switched off and back on again and if it is not possible to calibrate the tyre monitoring system, please go to a qualified workshop. Have the system checked.

Several warning and indicator lamps will light up briefly when the ignition is switched on while the vehicle runs functional checks. They will switch off after a few seconds.

WARNING

Differing tyre pressures or tyre pressures that are too low can cause tyre failure, the loss of vehicle control, accidents, serious injury and death.

WARNING

Failure to observe the warning lamps and text messages could lead to your vehicle breaking down in traffic, accidents and serious injuries.

NOTICE

Failure to observe the warning lamps and text messages could lead to your vehicle being damaged.

An audible warning sounds the first time that low tyre pressure is detected. If a system malfunction is detected, no audible warning is given.

Driving on unpaved roads for a long time or a sporty driving style could temporarily deactivate the tyre monitor display. The indicator lamp shows the functional fault, if any, but switches off if road conditions or the driving style changes or if the ignition is switched on and off again.
