Purpose

  • The tire pressure monitoring system warning alarm warns the user that a tire pressure has decreased or notifies the user that the tire pressure monitoring alarm has been reset.

Function

  • If the instrument cluster receives a tire pressure monitoring alarm request signal sent from the DSC HU/CM via the CAN signal, the tire pressure monitoring alarm is sounded.

  • The tire pressure monitoring alarm sound pattern is as shown in the figure: For the conditions in which each alarm pattern sounds. (See TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS).)
