Tyre pressure monitoring system: general information

87

GENERAL INFORMATION The vehicles are fitted with a Tyre pressure monitoring system that is designed to warn the driver: – by two warning lights on the instrument panel and on the display, – by a special display that shows the location of the fault. IMPORTANT: for the system to work correctly, you must program the sensors after replacing any valves or the computer. Also ensure that you do not swap the position of the wheels when replacing them. When replacing: – a sensor, you will need to program its reference code and its position on the vehicle into the computer, – a computer, you will need to program the codes, the position of the sensors and the recommended pressures. The vehicles may be fitted with PAX system tyres. This system allows you to drive with deflated tyres for a maximum distance of 125 miles or 200 km at a maximum speed of 50 mph or 80 km/h. If these tyres are fitted, the Tyre pressure monitoring system includes a special warning light and buzzer.

Tyre pressure monitoring system: general information

87

The Tyre pressure monitoring system consists of: – four pressure sensors incorporated in the valves (one per wheel). They transmit a radio frequency signal, – a receiver placed under the vehicle that picks up and decodes signals sent by the sensors, – a computer, – a special display made up of warning lights that show the nature and location of the tyre fault, – a buzzer (according to version).

OPERATION This system: – constantly monitors the pressure of the four vehicle tyres (the spare wheel is not monitored), – compares them with each other, – compares them with the recommended pressures. Special notes: Each sensor is identified by a coloured marking around the valve. This information is repeated on the recommended pressure label: – Green = front left – Yellow = front right – Red = rear left – Black = rear right IMPORTANT: these colour codes must be strictly observed so that you can read the correct information on the display. Each sensor has its own computer code. If a sensor is replaced, its code must be programmed into the computer according to its position on the vehicle (see the Sensor programming section) and it must be identified by the correct colour marking (see the Replacing a sensor section).

The Tyre pressure monitoring system warns the driver when: – the pressure 0.6 bar below the recommended pressure, – the pressure is too high, – a tyre has an abnormal leak, – a tyre is faulty, – there is a difference in pressure between the left and right-hand side tyres, – the maximum speed has been exceeded (tyres with PAX system), – authorisation to drive with deflated tyres has been given (tyres with PAX system).

PRESSURE SENSOR The pressure sensor consists of: – a conventional valve, – a pressure sensor, – a radio frequency receiver (specific to the wheel), – a battery which cannot be removed.

NOTE: the battery belonging to the pressure sensor valve cannot be replaced.

REMINDER: each sensor is identified with a specific colour marking. When a valve or tyre is being replaced or a wheel is being removed, you must observe the colours: – Green = front left – Yellow = front right – Red = rear left – Black = rear right

OPERATION The sensors (powered by an integrated battery) regularly measure the internal pressure of the tyres and transmit this data, together with a code identifying the sensor, by radio frequency waves. NOTE: a second set of wheel sensors can be identified by the UCH. Remember to observe the colour coding of the sensors according to their location.

Detaching the bead from the outside of the tyre When detaching the wheel rim bead, it is essential to begin on the opposite side to the valve and to make sure that the tyre bead does not pull on the sensor at any time. It is important to follow this recommendation as there is a high risk of damage to the sensor.

REMOVAL TIGHTENING TORQUE (in N.m) Pressure sensor nut 4.25 ± 0.75

IMPORTANT: there are special precautions to be taken when removing tyres fitted with pressure sensors. If you do not respect these precautions, it may result in damage to the sensor. NOTE: Refer to the special method for tyres fitted with the PAX system.

Detaching the bead from inside the tyre Detaching the bead from the inside is not difficult. Nonetheless, you must ensure that the outer bead does not pull on the sensor.

Taking off the outer tyre bead Place the tyre lever about 15 cm away from the valve and take off the bead, finishing by the valve. When performing this operation, make sure that the tyre bead does not pull on the sensor.

REPLACEMENT When a tyre is replaced, the following parts must be replaced: – the seal (1), – the mechanism (2), – the cap (3).

Taking off the inner tyre bead REFITTING Follow the method in the previous paragraph. Observe the mounting nut (3) tightening torque. When the tyre is refitted to the wheel rim, the beads must be correctly lubricated. Insert the inner bead about 15 cm away from the valve. Put the tyre back on the wheel rim finishing with the valve and make sure you do not pull on the pressure sensor. Carry out the above steps for the outer bead, taking care not to pull on the sensor. Reinflate the tyre to the recommended pressure.

IMPORTANT Before using the diagnostic tool to program the pressure sensors, you must configure the computer for the correct vehicle type using the command mode and configurations menus: – Mégane, – Vel Satis, – Tyres with PAX system.

MANUAL VAL CODE PROGRAMMING VE 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. With the ignition switched on, use the diagnostic tool to set up a dialogue with Tyres. Select the command mode then specific command menus. Confirm line SC001: programming a valve code. Confirm to move on to the entering screen. Enter the maximum eight-digit code as shown on the sensor label. Enter the position of the wheel fitted with this sensor on the vehicle. Confirm the wheel's season of use (the summer set is used by default if the vehicle only has one set of wheels).

PROGRAMMING THE PRESSURE SENSORS INTO THE COMPUTER REMINDER: each sensor is identified with a specific colour marking: – Green = front left – Yellow = front right – Red = rear left – Black = rear right There is more than one way to program a sensor code into the computer. A diagnostic tool must be used for these operations (except XR25): – manual programming of the valve code. This is shown on a label on the sensor, – programming the code using the MS. 1607 Valve exciter tool, – programming by driving the vehicle, – programming with the vehicle stationary (the valve issues a signal approximately once every 15 minutes if no punctures are present).

AUTOMATIC VALVE CODE PROGRAMMING USING THE VALVE EXCITER (MS. 1607) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. With the ignition switched on, use the diagnostic tool to set up a dialogue with Tyres. Select the command mode then specific command menus. Confirm line SC001: programming a valve code. Press tool MS. 1607 against the tyre under the valve concerned. Press the switch on the MS. 1607 tool once. Wait until the indicator light comes on to signify that programming is completed. The diagnostic tool signals that the valve code has been received. Confirm the position of the wheel fitted with this sensor on the vehicle Confirm the wheel's season of use (the summer set is used by default if the vehicle only has one set of wheels).

AUTOMATIC PROGRAMMING OF THE VALVE CODE BY DEFLATING A TYRE REMINDER: The valve sends a message to the receiver which includes its code, its pressure and its status. The receiver decodes this message and sends the information to the computer. When the vehicle is on the road, the valve sends a message every minute under normal conditions and every 10 seconds if its status is: status 2 (leak). When the vehicle is stationary, the valve sends a message every hour when operating normally and every quarter of an hour if it detects a leak. It is possible to change the condition of the valve by creating a leak: – for a stationary vehicle: wait a quarter of an hour for each wheel, – for a vehicle running above 12 mph (20 km/h). This operation can only be carried out for one wheel at a time. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. With the ignition switched on, use the diagnostic tool to set up a dialogue with Tyres. Create a leak of about 1 bar on a tyre. Select the command mode then specific command menus. Confirm line SC001: programming a valve code. Carry out a short road test. Confirm the position of the wheel fitted with this sensor on the vehicle Confirm the wheel's season of use (the summer set is used by default if the vehicle only has one set of wheels). Reinflate the tyre. Repeat the operation for each valve to be stored.

NOTE: the procedure is identical for programming four valves using the SC002: programming four valve codes command. Program in this order: front left wheel, front right wheel, rear right wheel and rear left wheel.
