Opel Corsa: Wheels and tyres / Tyre deflation detection system

The tyre deflation detection system continually checks the rotation speed of all four wheels and warns on low tyre pressure condition once vehicle is driving. This is achieved by comparing tyre rolling circumference with reference values and further signals.

If a tyre loses pressure the control indicator Opel Corsa. Tyre deflation detection system illuminates and a warning message is displayed in the Driver Information Centre.

In this case reduce speed, avoid sharp cornering and strong braking. Stop at next safe opportunity and check tyre pressure.

After adjusting tyre pressure initialise system to extinguish the control indicator and restart system.

If the failure continues to be displayed, contact a workshop. The system is inoperable when ABS or ESC has a malfunction or a temporary spare wheel is used. Once the tyre has been refitted, check the tyre pressure with cold tyres and initialise the system.

Caution

Deflation detection system warns just about low tyre pressure condition and does not replace regular tyre maintenance by the driver.

System initialisation

After tyre pressure correction or wheel change, the system must be initialised to learn new circumference reference values:

  1. Always ensure that all four tyres have correct tyre pressure.
  2. Apply parking brake.
  3. Initialise the system via the Info Display.
  4. Reset is confirmed by pop-up indication.

After initialisation system automatically calibrates to new tyre pressures during driving. After longer drive the system will adopt and monitor new pressures.

Always check tyre pressure with cold tyres.

System has to be reinitialised when:

  • Tyre pressure has been changed
  • Load condition has been changed
  • Wheels have been swapped or exchanged

The system will not warn instantaneously on a tyre blow out or a rapid deflation. This is due to required calculation time.

    Tyre pressure

    Check the pressure of cold tyres at least every 14 days and before any long journey. Do not forget the spare wheel. This also applies to vehicles with tyre deflation detection system...

    Tread depth

    Check tread depth at regular intervals. Tyres should be replaced for safety reasons at a tread depth of 2-3 mm (4 mm for winter tyres). For safety reasons, it is recommended that the tread depth of the tyres on one axle should not vary by more than 2 mm...
