Self Study Program 347 – Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems

VAG SSP 347. Tyre pressure monitoring systems monitor the inflation pressure of the tyres. They can warn you about dangerous changes in pressure and send a signal when the actual tyre pressure deviates from the specified tyre pressure.

The tyre pressure affects

  • road safety,
  • comfort,
  • the service life of the tyres and
  • fuel consumption

In Volkswagen vehicles, the tyre pressure is monitored using three different systems:

  • the tyre pressure monitor display (TPMD), which is purely a software solution,
  • the tyre pressure monitor (TPM) with wheel position recognition in the Touareg and Phaeton and
  • the TPM without position recognition in the Passat
