Tyre Pressure Monitoring System
« on: July 23, 2012, 10:40:09 pm »
Had a look for a topic about this but couldn't spot one so I'm sorry if one does exist!

Out of interest does anyone have this option on their APE?

The car I've bought has it fitted and it has been coming up with 'pressure monitoring system unavailable' today, as well as saying one or more tyres are not the correct pressure even though they were checked just before I picked it up, which was this morning.

Anybody had similar issues, or is that little icon in the bottom left corner of the screen just something I'm going to have to learn to live with!

    Had a little look but none of it really makes any sense to me.

    This must have been a really unpopular optional extra!

    I'm assuming it is something I could just get rid of?

    Although I've not seen them myself I believe the Punto tyre pressure monitors are more like the Bravo system than  the 500.
    They aren't caps they are a digital system that displays on the dashboard.

    Yes John, that's right. There's an icon that displays if the pressure has changed.
