Volkswagen Tire Pressure

TPMS Light on Dash

Checking your Volkswagen vehicle’s tire pressure is an important step to ensuring that you not only get the most out of your tires but that you drive efficiently and safely on the Onalaska roads. Take a look at the basics of tire pressure, including knowing how to reset the Volkswagen tire pressure light, with the service team at Volkswagen La Crosse. We’ll show you the basics of Volkswagen tire pressure, so you can keep your tires in tip-top shape.

Checking Your Volkswagen Tire Pressure

To check your Volkswagen vehicle’s tire pressure or refill your tires with air, pull up to a local Winona gas station. When you arrive at a gas station with an air pump, pull your Volkswagen up to the air pump, and perform the following:

  1. Make sure you’re close enough that the air hose can reach all four of your tires.
  2. On the first tire, remove the cap.
  3. Use your tire gauge to check the tire pressure.
  4. If the tire is underinflated, then use the air pump to slowly fill the tire back up to the appropriate amount of air.
  5. Once the tire has the right amount of air, put the cap back on the tire.
  6. Repeat the process for all four of your vehicle’s tires.

During the hot months, your tires can expand, which can lead to overinflation. If your tires are overinflated, then all you have to do is remove the cap and use the knob on the end of the tire gauge to release the pressure from your tire. You can buy a tire gauge at most gas stations or through the parts store here at Volkswagen La Crosse.

Volkswagen Tire Pressure Light

Your VW tire pressure light, also known as the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), will flash when it senses that one or more of your Volkswagen vehicle’s tires is low on air. If you see this light flashing, be sure to check your tire pressure whenever you get the chance.

Sometimes, it’s normal for you to still see your VW tire pressure light flash while driving around Tomah, even if your tires have normal air pressure levels. In this case, it just needs a reset, which can be done by performing the following steps:

  1. Turn on your ignition.
  2. In the glovebox, you should see a red button.
  3. Hold this button down for about two seconds. You should hear a beep.
  4. Your tire pressure light should now be turned off.

If you have a newer Volkswagen vehicle, then here is another method you can use:

  1. Turn your vehicle’s ignition to “On” without starting the engine.
  2. On the audio display system, select “CAR”.
  3. In the bottom right corner of the screen, choose “Settings”.
  4. Choose “Tires”.
  5. Choose “Set”.
  6. You should see a confirmation message. When you do, hit “Confirm”.
