Chevrolet Captiva Service & Repair Manual: Low Tire Pressure Reset Procedures

Chevrolet Captiva Service & Repair Manual / Tires / Low Tire Pressure Reset Procedures

The Low Tire Pressure warning lamp and/or the DIC (Driver Information Center) "Low Tire Pressure" message can be cleared by adjusting the tires to the recommended pressure and driving the vehicle at a speed above 25 mph for more than two minutes.

"Low Tire Pressure" message on a Chevrolet Captiva First generation (C100/C140) typically indicates that one or more tires have lower than recommended air pressure. This warning is part of the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), designed to alert drivers to potential tire pressure issues that could affect vehicle safety and performance.

When the TPMS detects low tire pressure in any of the tires, it triggers the "Low Tire Pressure" message to appear on the instrument cluster or information display. The message serves as a reminder for drivers to check and adjust tire pressures accordingly. Driving with low tire pressure can lead to reduced fuel efficiency, uneven tire wear, compromised handling, and potentially unsafe driving conditions.

To address the "Low Tire Pressure" message, drivers should follow these steps:

1. Check tire pressures: Use a tire pressure gauge to measure the air pressure in each tire, including the spare if applicable. Refer to the vehicle's owner's manual or the label on the driver's side door jamb for the recommended tire pressure values.

2. Inflate tires to proper levels: If any tire's pressure is below the recommended level, inflate it to the specified pressure using an air compressor or at a service station. Ensure all tires are inflated evenly to the correct pressure.

3. Drivin the vehicle at a speed above 25 mph for more than two minutes.

To prevent future occurrences of the "Low Tire Pressure" message, regularly check tire pressures at least once a month and before long trips. Proper tire maintenance contributes to vehicle safety, tire longevity, and optimal performance.

If the "Low Tire Pressure" message persists after adjusting tire pressures, it's advisable to have the vehicle inspected by a certified mechanic or authorized service center to diagnose and address any underlying problems.
