TPMS False readings
« on: August 20, 2018, 10:59:03 am »
HELP!!! I have a 2013 Mazda 6 estate Diesel.
My TPMS keeps giving false readings. This started around 6 months ago when I replaced a tyre since then TPMS goes every day. I have replace all tyres now with identical make and size. Also I have taken car to a local Mazda garage who have carried out several tests and can find nothing wrong. They have run a full global diagnostic check( no current faults showing). ABS system check,reluctor rings checked. diagnostic reset of TPMS and Body Control Module replaced and coded. I emailed Mazda and their answer is go to a Mazda dealer (at my cost) who will check and report back to Mazda if required. Does anyone have any ideas how to resolve this. Thanks

Whenever you replace a tyre or check pressures you should reset the TPMS system. This is done by holding down the button located on the dash, right hand side of the steering wheel. Mazda also recommend that when you change a tyre, only fit the same make as already on the vehicle. The system on the 6 works by measuring the rotation of the wheel rather than a loss in pressure, and different makes of tyre with different tread patterns can cause the system to go off.
