Volkswagen Tiguan Service and Repair Manual: Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with Autolocation

General Information

Note

  • The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) specified within this section refers to the optional TPMS, which employs individual pressure sensors to determine individual tire pressures.
  • The base TPMS does not employ individual pressure sensors to determine individual tire pressures, but instead is an integral part of the Antilock Brake System (ABS). For more information on the ABS.
  • The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) has running changes that replace the current tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).
  • The system currently uses sensors in the tires to report the air pressure on the Tire Pressure Monitoring Control Module -J502-.
  • With the function "Autolocation", the system can display the tire pressures and warnings in the correct positions in the instrument cluster after a shorter distance.
  • The "intelligent antenna" is a combination of the tire pressure monitoring control module and a central reception antenna.
  • It is not necessary to perform a manual adapting after replacing the wheel electronics or after changing tires. The tire pressure monitoring system automatically recognized the tire pressure sensors and adapts them as soon as the vehicle drives off.

Additional information concerning the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) with Auto-location may be found in Self Study Program.
