Had a puncture the other day so took it for repair. After repair and wheel refitted I noticed that the TPMS light was on and stayed on.Popped into local dealer who told me they would need to book it in for diagnostic check.
As i had had a puncture repaired they told me this was not a warranty claim and would cost £170 plus VAT.
So I did as bigjohnsparky recommended and all now perfect.
Loads of money saved and very happy
Owe you a pint mate

Briser, I hope you mean 2 and 2.5 bar rather than psi. If you're running around with 2 psi in your tyres then you're seriously deflated my man.

All this talk of TPMS reminds me, I changed my rear tyres to front a couple of months ago and I've never even looked at the settings, I always just check and adjust manually if required.

Yeah it seems that when my battery was replaced it now displays in Bar instead of Psi - and when I did a conversion I found the tyres were too high (one was 2.7bar) so went to the garage and forced the machine to level them all at 30psi which is approx 2.1 bar.

Incidentally the method in the first post did not work with my car, when I pressed Lock/Unlock on the keyfob nothing happened.

Sounds a bit low. The 2013 OM says 35 psi (2.4 bar) all round for all sizes, increased to 41 psi (2.8 bar) for the rear when towing.

Mine is a 58 plate and I think I read that 30psi is about correct for that age model
Antara <table id="tablepress-40" ="tablepress tablepress-id-40 Table" role="grid" height="28" width="542"><t ="row-"><tr ="row-182 even" role="row"><td ="column-1">

although they were at 37psi when I bought the car.
Should the front and rear be different? I don't tow.

Is there a label on one of the door pillars stating what the tyre pressures should be?

Just looked up the May 2007 OM. Pressures for up to four people are 30 psi all round, then 33 psi for the front and 35 psi for the rear for a "full load" (with no mention of towing). I wonder why they changed? Temporary spares are a much higher pressure.

When you pressed lock and unlock buttons at same time and held them both pressed for about 25secs
was all door closed with handbrake on
And only ignition on engine not running
Then press both buttons on key fob

I didn't hold them down as long as that - maybe that is where I went wrong.
I held them down for a few seconds but nothing happened. Will try again.

How do I change it to display psi instead of Bar?

Hi briser
I think to change from bar to psi is a vx dealer ☹ Or try and find someone with software to change it but I did have a quick look on another site which advises not to change setting as could poss open up a can of worms with other settings if it was mine I would leave as what's set Edited by: Bigjohnsparky

Its a bloody nuisance as it was all good until the Garage changed the battery out and now not only is the Tyre Pressure in Bar, but the Mileage is in Km instead of Miles etc

Easy fix to get it to show imperial rather than metric, press the Settings Button on the radio facia this will let you change MPH to Km etc etc
