Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

The tyre pressure monitoring system is designed to alert you when one or more of the tyres on your vehicle is significantly under-inflated. The tyre pressure monitor-ing system (TPMS) sensor containing a unique identification code is mounted on each wheel. The TPMS sensors transmit tyre pressure signals to the receiver of the tyre pressure monitoring system controller. When the inflation pressure of one or more tyres indicates significant underinflation, the low tyre pressure warning light comes on.

NOTE:
The word “telltale” in this section, means an indicator.

Low Tyre Pressure Warning LightSuzuki New CARRY 2019 Windows and Instrument Cluster User Manual 06

Each tyre should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tyre pressure label. (If your vehicle has tyres of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tyre pressure label, you should determine the proper tyre pressure for those tyres.) As an added fuel efficiency feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tyre pressure telltale when one or more of your tyres is significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tyre pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tyres as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tyre causes the tyre to overheat and can lead to tyre failure. Underinflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tyre tread life and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability. Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tyre maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tyre pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tyre pressure tell-tale.

WARNING
Relying only on the tyre pressure monitoring system to determine when it is necessary to add air to the tyres can result in loss of control or an accident.
Check tyre pressures monthly when the tyres are cold. If necessary, adjust them to the recommended inflation pressure as specified on the vehicle’s tyre information placard and in this owner’s manual. Refer to “Tyres” in the “INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE” section.

WARNING
Failure to take corrective action when the low tyre pressure warning light is not working or when it comes on and blinks while driving can lead to an accident.
If the low tyre pressure warning light does not come on for 2 seconds after the ignition switch is turned to “ON” position, or comes on and blinks while driving, have your vehicle inspected by a SUZUKI dealer. Even if the light turns off after blinking, indicating that the monitoring system has recovered, you should still have the system checked by a SUZUKI dealer.

WARNING
The load-carrying capacity of your tyres is reduced at lower inflation pressures. If your tyres are even moderately under-inflated, the load on the tyres may exceed the load-carrying capacity of the tyres, which could lead to tyre failure. The low tyre pressure warning light will not alert you to this condition, because it only comes on when one or more of your tyres becomes significantly under-inflated. Check and adjust your tyre pres-sure at least once a month. Refer to “Tyres” in the “INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE” section.

WARNING
Continuing to drive with the low tyre pressure warning light on can lead to an accident, resulting in severe injury or death.
If the low tyre pressure warning light comes on and stays on, reduce your speed and avoid abrupt steering and braking. Be aware that driving on a significantly under-inflated tyre can cause the tyre to overheat and can lead to tyre failure, and may affect steering control and brake effectiveness. Stop in a safe place as soon as possible and check your tyres.

  • If you have a flat tyre, replace it with a spare tyre. Refer to “Jacking Instructions” in the “EMERGENCY SERVICE” section for the tyre replacement method. Also, refer to “Replacing Tyres and/or Wheels” for instructions on how to restore normal operation of the TPMS after you have had a flat tyre.
  • If one or more of your tyres is under-inflated, adjust the inflation pressure in all of your tyres to the recommended inflation pressure as soon as possible.

The low tyre pressure warning light can come on due to normal causes such as natural air leakage and pressure changes caused by changes in temperature or atmospheric pressure. Adjusting the air pressure in the tyres to the pressure shown on the tyre information placard should cause the low tyre pressure warning light to turn off. To make the low tyre pressure warning light go off, adjust the tyre pressures when the tyres are cold, and drive the vehicle for about 10 minutes.

NOTICE
If the low tyre pressure warning light does not go off even when you drive for more than 10 minutes after adjusting the cold tyre pressure, there may be a problem with the TPMS. Have your vehicle inspected by a SUZUKI dealer.

If the light turns on again shortly after adjusting the pressure in your tyres, you may have a flat tyre. If you have a flat tyre, replace it with a spare tyre. Refer to “Jacking Instructions” in the “EMERGENCY SERVICE” section. Refer to “Replacing Tyres and/or Wheels” for instructions on how to restore normal operation of the tyre pressure monitoring system after you have had a flat tyre.

TPMS Limitations

  1. The tyre pressure monitoring system may not function properly under certain circumstances. In the following situations, the low tyre pressure warning light may come on and remain on or may blink.
  2. When you replace a flat tyre with a spare tyre.
  3. When you include a spare tyre during a tyre rotation.
  4. When the TPMS sensor is damaged during a tyre replacement or liquid sealants are used to repair a flat tyre. When the electronic signal of TPMS sensor is disturbed in one of the following ways:
  5. Electric devices or facilities using similar radio wave frequencies are nearby.
  6. A metallic film that may cause radio wave interference is attached on the window.
  7. A lot of snow or ice covers the vehicle, in particular, around the wheels or wheel housings.
  8. Snow tyres that are not installed with genuine TPMS sensors or snow chains are used.
  9. When you use non-genuine SUZUKI wheels or tyres.
  10. When the pressure of any tyre is too high.
  11. When there is a problem with the receiver of the TPMS controller.

TPMS Setting

You can set one of the initial value of tyre pressure below that is indicated on the tyre information label.

  1. Comfort Mode
  2. Load Mode

For details on how to set the mode, refer to “Setting Mode (for Vehicles with Tyre Pres-sure Monitoring System (TPMS))” in “BEFORE DRIVING” section.

WARNING
If the loading weight has changed, adjust the tyre pressure according to the tyre information label and set the initial value via the information dis-play. If the loading weight, tyre pres-sure and initial value do not match, the tyre pressure monitoring system will not function properly.

Replacing Tyres and or Wheels

If you got a flat tyre and replaced it with a spare tyre, SUZUKI recommends that you have a SUZUKI dealer mount a new tyre on the wheel that had the flat tyre. The TPMS is already set up to recognize the ID code of the original wheel, and normal TPMS operation will be restored. If you need to replace any wheels on your vehicle, a SUZUKI dealer must check that TPMS sensors are installed in the new wheels and must set up the TPMS to recognize the new sensors.

NOTE:
A TPMS sensor is not installed in the spare tyre. You should use the spare tyre only in an emergency situation and should replace the spare tyre as soon as possible to restore normal TPMS operation.

WARNING
Use of tyres or wheels not recommended by SUZUKI can result in failure of the TPMS. When replacing tyres and wheels, use only tyres and wheels recommended by SUZUKI as standard or optional equipment for your vehicle. Refer to “Tyres” in the “INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE” section for additional information.
