Diagnosis Description

DESCRIPTION

During driving, the TPMS receives the signal transmitted from the transmitter installed in each wheel, when the tire pressure becomes low. The control unit (BCM) of this system has pressure judgment and trouble diagnosis functions.

When the TPMS detects low inflation pressure or another unusual symptom, the warning lamps in the combination meter comes on.

SELF DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURE (WITH CONSULT-III)

• Touch “SELF-DIAG RESULTS” display shows malfunction experienced since the last erasing operation.

Refer to BCS-91, "DTC Index".

SELF DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURE (WITHOUT CONSULT-III)

To start the self-diagnostic results mode, ground terminal of the tire pressure warning check connector. The malfunction location is indicated by the warning lamp flashing.

NOTE: When the low tire warning lamp flashes 5 Hz and continues repeating it, the system is normal.

2. Turn ignition switch “ON” and select “SELF-DIAG RESULTS” mode for “AIR PRESSURE MONITOR” with CONSULT-III.

• In order to make it easier to find the cause of hard-to-duplicate malfunctions, malfunction information is stored into the control unit as necessary during use by the user. This memory is not erased no matter how many times the ignition switch is turned “ON” and“OFF”.

• However, this information is erased by turning ignition switch “OFF” after performing self-diagnostic or by erasing the memory using the CONSULT-III.
