Renault Koleos Owners Manual: Tyre pressure monitoring system

Renault Koleos Owners Manual / Driving / Tyre pressure monitoring system

Tyre pressure monitoring system

If the vehicle is equipped with the function, this system monitors the tyre pressure.

Operating principle

Each wheel (except for the emergency spare wheel) has a sensor in the inflation valve which periodically measures the tyre pressure.

The system displays the current pressures on the instrument panel 1 and alerts the driver in the event of insufficient pressure.

Resetting the standard level for the tyre pressures

This should be done:

  • when the standard tyre pressure needs to be changed to adapt to usage conditions (empty, carrying a load, motorway driving, etc.);
  • after swapping a wheel (however this practice is not recommended);
  • after changing a wheel.

It should always be done after checking the tyre pressure of all four tyres when cold.

Tyre pressures must correspond to the current usage of the vehicle (empty, carrying a load, motorway driving, etc.).

Resetting can also be done from the multifunction screen 3 if your vehicle is fitted with a navigation system.

Select the menu "Vehicle", "Tyre pressure".

Resetting procedure

With the ignition on:

  • repeatedly and briefly press control 2 to select the tyre pressure display and the "Tyre pressure" function;
  • press and hold (around 3 seconds) the button 2 to launch the reset. The flashing tyres followed by the messages "Learning TP initiated" and then "Tyres location in progress" indicates that the reset request for the tyre pressure reference value has been acknowledged.

Reset can take several minutes of driving.

If the resetting is followed by short trips, the message "Tyres location in progress" can remain displayed after successive restarts.

Note The standard tyre pressure cannot be less than that recommended and indicated on the door frame.

Tyre pressure monitoring system

Display

The display 1 and the warning light 4 on the instrument panel warn you of any tyre pressure faults (flat tyre, punctured tyre, system fault, etc.).

For your safety, the warning light requires you to stop immediately as soon as traffic conditions allow.

Tyre pressure monitoring system

" Adjust tyre pressure " A wheel B is shown in orange, the warning light 4 comes on and the message "Adjust tyre pressure" appears.

They indicate that a wheel is deflated.

Check and, if necessary, readjust the pressures of the four wheels when cold.

The warning light 4 goes off after a few minutes' driving.

" Puncture " A wheel B is shown in red, the warning light 4 comes on, the message "Puncture" appears and there is a beep.

This message appears along with the warning light.

They indicate that the affected wheel is punctured or severely underinflated.

Replace it or contact an approved dealer if it is punctured. Top up the tyre pressure if the wheel is deflated.

"Check tyre pressure sensors" A wheel A disappears, the warning light 4 flashes for several seconds then comes on continuously and the message "Check tyre pressure sensors" appears.

This message appears along with the warning light. They indicate that at least one wheel is not fitted with sensors (e.g. emergency spare wheel).

Otherwise, consult an authorised dealer.

The sudden loss of pressure in a tyre (burst tyre, etc.) cannot be detected by the system.

"Tyres location failure" This message "Tyres location failure" appears when driving if one or more wheels have been fitted with sensors not recognised by Renault.

Consult an approved dealer

Readjustment of tyre pressures

The tyre pressures should be adjusted when cold (please refer to the label located on the edge of the driver's door). If the tyre pressures cannot be checked when the tyres are cold, the recommended pressures should be increased by 0.2 to 0.3 bar (3 PSI).

Never deflate a hot tyre.

Replacing wheels/tyres

This system requires specific equipment (wheels, tyres, hubcaps, etc.).

Contact an approved Dealer to fit new tyres and to find out about available accessories compatible with the system and available from your dealer network: the use of any other accessory could affect the correct operation of the system or damage a sensor.

Emergency spare wheel

If the vehicle is equipped with an emer-gency spare wheel, it will not have a sensor.

Tyre repair product and inflation kit

Because the valves are specially designed, only use equipment approved by the approved network.

Changing a wheel

The system may take several minutes depending on use for the new wheel positions and pressures to be recognised; check the tyre pressures after all operations.

 

This function is an additional driving aid.

However, the function is not intended to replace the driver. It cannot, therefore, under any circumstances replace the vigilance or the responsibility of the driver. Check the tyre pressures, including the emergency spare wheel, once a month.
