Cool Tyre pressure sensors

Hi guys,

I have an 2002 Laguna Expression. The tyre pressure sensor diagram on the dash has a flashing front right tyre and is not showing a back right tyre.

The STOP light and the SERV lights are both illuminated and the flat tyre picture is illuminated on the dash.

Occassionally everything looks fine and there are no STOP or SERV lights etc illuminated but as sure as ever within a few hours driving it will be back again. Very annoying as the pressure when checked is fine at 2.0 bar

Is there any way of isolating the tyre pressure sensors totally from the car so that the STOP and SERV lights and the flat tyre diagram will not be illuminated as it is very distracting when driving.

I would be very grateful if any one could help me on this one.

Hi katie,

Are you sure that you havent got a slow puncture in that tyre ? ......and you say you have checked the tyre pressures, did you do this when the tyres were cold (ie before driving it any distance, say for more that 10 mins). Tyre pressures rise when the tyres are warm you see.

Also, you can get the system deactivated on the car, but then it wont tell you the pressures of the tyres on startup and therefore wont tell you when you have a puncture. I've disabled the system on my car as it was a cheaper option that buying new tyre monitoring valves and getting them programmed by Renault.

The dealer I used would only de-activate the system once I had a letter from my insurance company saying this it was OK for them to do so. I think Renault dont want to be held responsible incase someone has an accident because they disabled the tyre pressure monitoring system.
