I recently cought a screw on a tyre. The tyre did not become completely flat, but definately lost pressure which was visible. I could still drive the ride though. But the flat tyre sensor showed nothing.
Had anyone faced flat tyres? When does the sensor indicate - when the tyre is flat completely, or when the pressure is lower than ... something?

Well, it might be a different page in his manual, he's in Russia.

The only wheel I've had it light for (had a slow leak), it came on around 22 PSI (152 kPa), about 2/3 of the recommended pressure.

The only other car I've had it come on for was a rental, driving in the mountains. Turned out all 4 tires were over 60 PSI at that point!

Well then I can't help. However, it'll be in "his" manual somewhere.

Flat tyre detector. How flat should a tyre be?



If your tire
is as flat
as a pancake...

That means, you let it get, too low.




The first time my idiot light,
for low tire pressure,
on the dashboard,
lit up, I deserved it.

Six months of ownership
and I don't remember checking
the pressure in my tires, once.

It's "a new vehicle" I told myself.

Well, it turned on, reminding me I'm an idiot
for not checking their pressures monthly.

After I inflated all the rubber meets the road, tires.
The light was still on. Maybe the spare needed filling?
So I dragged out all the stuff in the boot. And checked
there too. Glad I did! The spare was the least inflated.

But, the idiot light was still on!
I drove around the block, to see if the light would reset.
It did, thankfully.

It has been awhile, since all that commotion.
But I think I remember the lowest tire pressure
in the low twenty's.

Visually, It didn't appear to be dangerously low.
When in fact, It clearly was.

Good thing I don't drive it hard. Well, usually...
