R32 mk5 2008
the tmps system for when you have a puncture.
It wasn't an option on the MK5 R32, it was standard.I have this button but didnt realise it was an option?
Yip and it saves the hassle of having pressure sensors in the wheel like high end Audis and some French cars have, that need replaced every time you change your tyres.spot on Bob-pretty clever how it works of your abs
It's nice to know how the system works so thanks for that.It's just the button that's wired into the port on the ABS ECU.
The system uses the ABS wheel speed sensors to detect a change in rolling radius and thus a tyre deflation. This functionality is activated using VCDS.
I had a Renault laguna before the R & that TPMS was spot on, it gave accurate PSI readings for each tyre on the centre display in the instrument cluster, never had a problem with it, and that was on a ten year old car, never had to change the sensors when I changed the tyres though Bob, just made the tyre fitter aware that sensors where fitted to the wheels, so he didn't try and rip the valves out like they normally doYip and it saves the hassle of having pressure sensors in the wheel like high end Audis and some French cars have, that need replaced every time you change your tyres.
