ALFA ROMEO 159 Owner's Manual: Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

Alfa 159.
Hide thumbs

TYRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM -

T.P.M.S. (where provided)
(optional for versions/
markets where applicable)
The car may be equipped with a Tyre
Pressure Monitoring System, which in-
dicates to the driver the tyre pressure
status by two different indications:
"Check tyre pressures" and "Low tyre
pressures". For a detailed description of
the two indications, see the "Warning
Lights and Messages" section. This sys-
tem consists of a radio-frequency sen-
sor, installed on each wheel (on the rim
inside the tyre) that sends pressure in-
formation to the control unit.

WARNING
The T.P.M.S. does not
exempt the driver from
checking tyre pressure, includ-
ing the space-saver spare
wheel (where provided) at
regular intervals.
IMPORTANT NOTES
Failure indications will not be stored and
therefore will not be displayed when
turning the engine off and on again. If
failure persists, the control unit will send
warning indications to the instrument
panel only after a few seconds when the
car is moving.
Tyre pressure should be checked with
tyres cold. Should it become necessary
for whatever reason to check pressure
with hot tyres, do not reduce pressure
although it is higher than the prescribed
value but repeat the check when tyres
are cold (see section "Wheels" in sec-
tion "Technical Specifications").
T.P.M.S. cannot indicate sudden tyre
pressure drops (e.g.: tyre burst). In this
event, brake the car cautiously and
avoid sudden steering.
The T.P.M.S. system requires special
equipment. Consult Alfa Romeo Autho-
rized Services to know what type of ac-
cessories are compatible with the sys-
tem (wheels, wheel caps, etc.). Using
other accessories could cause system
malfunctioning. Due to inflation valve
special characteristics, use only tyre re-
pair sealants approved by Alfa Romeo;
other sealants could cause system mal-
functioning.
