I have a Tarraco 2.0D 150 Xcell AT 4x4, whilst driving yesterday the tyre pressure warning light cam on, I stopped at a service station and checked the tyre pressure and all tyres were 38 psi, can I reset the system or do I have to go to my dealership to get this done. Many thanks.

Hi Brian
If you go into car settings under tyre pressure you can reset new tyre pressure.

Good stuff Brian
It says in the manual that every time you alter tyre pressure to reset.
If this happens again it might be a sensor playing up

Let me share a bit of wisdom that I got from my Seat dealership on this ;)

Actually, the Tarraco does not have any sensors inside the tires / rims. The ESP system calculates and compares the revolutions of each tire. If the pressure drops in any of the tires, it's circumference gets smaller so it's spinning more times than the other 3 tires. If this happens - the car will show a Low Tire Pressure warning.

When I think about it - it's a very simple and smart way of detecting loss of pressure :) Way more simple and fool-proof than pressure sensors in each rim.
