Blatantly false. My TPM system has worked fine for a year, with no problems at all.Good -EG 2 said:I don't know if it a learning disability or what! I have a little over 14000 miles on mine and the tire pressure monitor only works sporadically. the module has been replaced once and reset a few times. What happens with mine is that everytime I drive more than 20 minutes, I get a TPM System fault which indicates that the TPM is not working during that time. It will come and go with no apparant reason. This is great on a road trip it doesn't work when you need it! The dealer tells me all the Touaregs have the same problem and it's because VW has set the tolerances too tight. Is anybody else putting up with this or should I call VW?
Same here. My low pressure warning and finally flat tire warning came on and I ignored it because the tires "looked" OK. Finally, after two weeks of annoying beeps, I checked the tire pressure and found that my pressure was below 30 psi. I guess the damn thing works!!!! :joy:biggeno said:2 things: 1 my alarm came on saying i had a low tire. I ignored it because "its a touareg, those things are never right" later checked the tires and one had a big bolt in it and only 20 pounds in it. moral: if your trex crys wolf, maybe you should pay attention. 2: you mentioned that your inside door said more pressure in rear tires than front?? mine says 45 in front , and 39 in back.
The sticker on the inside of my Touareg's driver door indicates that Cold Tire Inflation Pressure should be 39 for front tires and 45 for rear tires. I'm not sure why it doesn't match yours. Mine is a 2004 V8 VIN:69xxx.biggeno said:mine says 45 in front , and 39 in back.
39F/45R is the fully loaded pressures. If you normally drive with cargo and/or a full load of passengers, you should increase the rears. If you typically drive alone, then what you are at should be okay. If your typical use is somewhere between, then you may want to pump the rears up to 42 or so.planekrazy said:The sticker on the inside of my Touareg's driver door indicates that Cold Tire Inflation Pressure should be 39 for front tires and 45 for rear tires.

Since I purchased the vehicle a month ago, the TPMS has been reporting 39 PSI for all four tires. Everything seems to be working just fine. So should I really add more air to the rear tires to get them close to 45, or just leave them at 39? I generally subscribe to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" school of thought, but I'm willing to change my ways if it would make the Egg even happier :smile:
I recommend RedHook ESB, or RedHook Winterhook (when available). Sam Adams is good too, though you can't beat an ice cold Bud for a summer "lawnmower" brew.biggeno said:unless i am drinking some bad beer, i am sure mine says cold pressure 45 FRONT, 39 REAR. service rep says thats too high for everyday driving so i put 40 all around....probably get about 10,000 miles out of this set of tires!!!!!
I suppose if you get the pressures set the same as before rotation, you wouldn't need to. But why shy away from it? It's not hard.bostonron said:If i rotate my own tires and put the correct amount of air in, will i have to reset the tpm.
