    When I got a new tyre on the 207 I just needed to drive it for a little while and it reset itself.

    It's possible it needs to be driven above a certain speed (and at the right pressure) for it to reset.

    Drive the car. If it is like a C5, once you get up to about 40km/h it should sort itself out.

    If you put the spare on ( I assume that is what you mean by ' Replaced by 2nd hand today' ) it does not have a sensor built in to the rim valve and thus will not be monitored by the alert system. When you have the blown tyre replaced and put that rim back onto the car the system will pick it up again. Refer to page 84 of the user manual for any extra information.

    I certainly wouldn't refer to my spare as second hand

    i assume the OP bought a second hand tyre to replace the dead one.

    thanks guys; yes 2nd hand means what it says, replaced with a 2nd hand continental, the spare is a SPARE! I'll drive it for a while and see what ensues: in the handbook is reference to 'go to a citroen dealer' etc no thanks not for tyre pressure reset, such unimportant info. ta

    I apologise for my lack of knowledge, can only base my interpretation of your first post on my own past experiences. In 37 years of owning cars I have never put a second hand tyre onto any of my vehicles and would never entertain the idea for a 'modern' car.

    If the sensor does not reset itself after driving the car around for a while it may have been damaged when the tyre blew or when the continental was fitted to that rim. If so, you can get a new C4 tyre pressure sensor kit via the UK eBay for around $20 plus another $20 postage. One seller is linked here: Citroen C4 C4 Coupe Tyre Pressure Sensor Valve Repair KIT NEW | eBay

    My C5 recently had new tyres on the front.

    The wheels got swapped around.

    It drives OK but the tyre pressures are no longer monitored.

    Will swapping the wheels back FIX this ?

    JG,

    Love your name. Does it refer to the DEC PDP11 series of CPUs. I have done some maintenance work with a PDP11/03 and with some LSI 11s.

    About your C5 - it all depends on what model of tyre pressure monitoring it has and whether it has been disabled or not. Are you getting any messages about which wheels are not reporting pressures?

    On my 2008 C5 X7, the system seems to adjust itself to suit new tyre positions. If there is a tyre without a sensor fitted (such as a steel spare), the system reports it cannot sense that wheel sensor everytime you take it for a drive.

    On my car you need a Lexia to log new tyre pressure sensors into the tyre pressure monitoring system.

    Check out the fun I had with my car and tyre pressure sensors.

    The eBay seller was selling the valve end. The inside-the-tyre transmitter looks like this C4 vts tyre sensor reset??-tyre-pressure-sensor.jpg

    Hi Ken, I used to be a PDP-11 guru of sorts. Had a business supporting PDP-11 systems. Often got referred to 'difficult' customers by DEC. Regards, John Geremin.
