This tire pressure warning appears:

  1. for approx. 10 seconds when the vehicle is stationary and the ignition
    is switched off or
  2. when the ignition is switched on again.

The warning can be acknowledged when the ignition is switched on.

The tire pressure warning light on the instrument panel goes out only when the tire pressure has been corrected.

Red warning – Tire pressure!

Red warning – Tire pressure!
At speeds of less than 100 mph (160 km/h):

  1. The pressure in the tire has dropped by more than 7 psi / 0.5 bar / 50 kPa. This significant pressure loss is a danger to road safety.

At speeds of more than 100 mph (160 km/h):

  1. The pressure in the tire has dropped by more than 6 psi / 0.4 bar / 40 kPa. This significant pressure loss is a danger to road safety.
  • When the tire pressure warning appears, stop immediately at a suitable place. Check the indicated tire for signs of damage.
    If necessary, fill in tire sealant and set the correct tire pressure.

This tire pressure warning also appears when driving and can be acknowledged.

The tire pressure warning light on the instrument panel goes out only when the tire pressure has been corrected.

For information on tire sealing compound:

  • Please see the chapter "USING TIRE SEALANT" on page 303.

Changing a wheel and replacing tires

  • New wheels must be fitted with radio transmitters for Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
    Before tires are changed, the battery charge condition of the wheel transmitters should be checked at an authorized Porsche dealer.
  • Switch off the ignition when changing a wheel.

The tire settings on the multi-function display must be updated after changing a wheel.

If the tire settings are not updated, the message "Tire change? Update settings!" is displayed on the multi-function display

  • Update the multi-function display settings the next time the vehicle is stationary.

Pressure increase as the result of temperature increase
In accordance with physical principles, the tire pressure changes as the temperature changes. For every 18 °F (10 °C) change in temperature, the tire pressure increases or decreases by around 1.5 psi / 0.1 bar / 10 kPa.
