p.s The tyre pressure sensor also has a cr2032 battery in, so this could be, i suppose, at fault.

1.6 tdci, remapped to 120 bhp, Panther Black Titanium with rear view camera, nav pac and front sensors. Always willing to stop & help in any situation I can. Karma is a beautiful thing.

My manual page 159 states that I have an ABS based system detecting rolling circumference differences. It seems to be able to detect 2 psi difference. Its a March 2013 Titanium.

Just had my front tyres changed and no valve sensor. It's definitely ABS rolling diameter and I had to reset it manually before the warning light went out. 2013MY

You can tell which system you have, If you have a more modern system with pressure sensor inside the valve (sometimes you can gently rock the valve stem a bit and you can hear the sensor hitting the alloys inside the wheel) .

I you have a display with indicated Tyre pressures for each wheel you have the new system.

My system is the old type were it measures the 'Drag' between two sets of wheels eg. two front ones.

A dragging brake will also give a warning on this system because there would be more drag on one side compared to the other.

Any relevance?:
