TIRE PRESSURE WARNING SYSTEM TEST MODE PROCEDURE


  1. TEST MODE (SIGNAL CHECK MODE) PROCEDURE

    Tech Tips


    • When entering test mode (signal check mode), the tire pressure warning ECU and receiver sets all the test mode (signal check mode) DTCs first.

      After the tire pressure warning ECU and receiver completes the signal check for each inspection item, the DTCs for systems that are determined to be normal will be cleared.

      The DTCs for other inspection items may not be cleared when only a certain signal is inspected.

    • When test mode (signal check mode) returns to normal mode, all the test mode (signal check mode) DTCs will be cleared.


    1. Turn the ignition switch off.

    2. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.

    3. Turn the ignition switch to ON and the GTS on.

    4. Enter the following menus: Chassis / Tire Pressure Monitor / Utility / Signal Check.

      Tech Tips

      Every time the test mode (signal check mode) DTC clear conditions are satisfied, the tire pressure warning light illuminates for 1 second. Following this, the tire pressure warning light blinks at 0.125 second intervals.

    5. Wait for 1.5 minutes with the vehicle stopped, or drive the vehicle for 1 minute (C2181/81 to C2184/84).

      Tech Tips

      The tire pressure warning valve and transmitters send signals to the tire pressure warning ECU and receiver once every 1.5 minutes while the vehicle is stopped and once every minute while driving.

    6. Check that the tire pressure warning system test mode (signal check mode) DTCs are cleared.
