Tyre Pressure Sensor b4 2012.

Post by seanrx »

Hi all.

My 2004 C5 MkII, its sensors have never worked and its always passed an Mot.

But now, since 4 days ago, I have a (new) symbol on the dash. 'Low tyre pressure warning'.

The first time I ever see this and its Mot is next week (typical).

Will this be a fail on the Mot?

According to the MOT, the inspection of the tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is for M1 vehicles (passenger cars) first used on or after 1 January 2012.

So they were not compulsory back in 2004 and won't be part of the inspection according to the MOT inspection manual. So if anything is said - I would point that out.

The pressure warning? Fixed this.

The shunt fuse,I move it from client to park with removal and replace of the battery ground cable before and after.

I leave the fuse in park for an hour.

Another C5 hack!
