Thanks and what about the tyre pressure monitor system, if deliberating reducing tyre pressure for off road use? Can it be disabled? Or will fitting valves without the sensors disable the system? Or will the system continue to warn because it can't speak to the sensors? Technology is great when used correctly as long as it can be manually overridden if required. Cheers
Can it not be reset after lower pressure has been set? I mean after resetting the tyre pressures on the gauge at the garage, reset the system then it should only go off if the new pressure drops?
I'm only going by what they do with the ones on a daf hgv, but sometimes even that comes up with a deflating tyre from time to time, all that's needed is a tpi reset, obviously after a couple of well aimed kicks to the tyrewall.
I did have a complete flat on one of the front tyres once, the tpi didn't even acknowledge it, only after I'd stopped and had a new tyre fitted it said the new tyre was low on pressure.
oh, perhaps a tire specialist like bush, or mcc if you have them there may be more use.
I would try decreasing the pressures then reset the system near the air pump in case you need to fill them Again, and see if it picks up on it, Im guessing that they can only pick up loss from the amount inflated after system reset, I can't see them having a set Psi due to normal/ economy inflation some tyres allow, for example my pixo normal Psi was 32, the economy was 40, unless that's all finished now I'm not sure.
Thankfully I don't have them, and (hopefully!!!!) I'll never have to go offroad, but having knowledge of them, it can be quite scary when it starts d'dinging the first time when your weaving down a country lane.
