Peugeot 2008: Driving / Under-inflation detection

Peugeot 2008 2019-2021 Owner's Manual / Driving / Under-inflation detection

This system automatically checks the pressures of the tyres while driving.

It compares the information given by the wheel speed sensors with reference values, which must be reinitialised every time the tyre pressures are adjusted or a wheel changed.

The system triggers an alert as soon as it detects a drop in the inflation pressure of one or more tyres.

Peugeot 2008. Under-inflation detection Under-inflation detection does not replace the need for vigilance on the part of the driver.

This system does not avoid the need to regularly check the tyre pressures (including the spare wheel), especially before a long journey.

Driving with under-inflated tyres, particularly in adverse conditions (heavy load, high speed, long journey):

Peugeot 2008. Under-inflation detection The inflation pressures defined for the vehicle can be found on the tyre pressure label.

Reinitialisation

Peugeot 2008. Under-inflation detection Reinitialise the system after adjusting one or more tyre pressures and after changing one or more wheels.

Before reinitialising the system, make sure that the pressures of the four tyres are correct for the conditions of use of the vehicle and conform to the values written on the tyre pressure label.

Check the pressures of the four tyres before performing the reinitialisation.

The system does not advise if a pressure is incorrect at the time of reinitialisation.
