How to Check Tire Pressure on a Mercedes-Benz
Colder temperatures can cause the air inside your tires to contract, and loose objects on the road, such as nails, can actually puncture your tires; both are detrimental to your tire pressure. Therefore, it’s important to check your tire pressure regularly to keep your vehicle’s performance and safety in check. The Mercedes-Benz Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) makes doing so easy, and, best of all, it only takes a couple of minutes. Below, Mercedes-Benz of Honolulu teaches you how to check tire pressure on your Mercedes-Benz with this feature!
When to Check Tire Pressure on Your Mercedes-Benz
While there is no set interval on when to check tire pressure, you should check your tire pressure every month and even more so when the weather gets colder. Additionally, it is important to keep a lookout for the tire pressure light on your dashboard. If the Tire Pressure Monitoring System warning light comes on, it means that your tires are either under- or over-inflated. The tire pressure levels of your car’s tires can be seen on the Mercedes-Benz Tire Pressure Monitoring System. With this system, you don’t even need to leave your car to view pressure levels, making checking your tires easier than ever for Mililani and Waipahu drivers.
How to Use the Mercedes-Benz Tire Pressure Monitoring System
- Press the left or right arrow buttons on the steering wheel until you get to the “Service” menu.
- After that, push the up and down arrow buttons until you reach the “Tire Pressure” option. Press “OK” to view the tire pressure levels for each of your car’s tires.
- If the TPMS indicates that your tires are under- or over-inflated, check your tires with a hand-held pressure gauge, and adjust your tires accordingly. Recommended tire pressure levels are on a printed label inside of the fuel door.
- After you finish adjusting your tires, check the “Tire Pressure” display to confirm that your tires are at the correct pressure levels.
- Once your tires are at the right levels of pressure, you can restart the TPMS. To do this, push the down arrow on the steering wheel, and press “OK.”
