Hey Everyone

I have set my tire pressures when cold, in the morning and double checked with
2 different tire pressure gauges. I have gone with 38 PSI all the way around.
Now, in the infotainment when i dial it up, it reads 45psi to 47 psi:eek
How does one go about adjusting/ resetting this.
Is there a fix for this?

Thanks
Cheers

Normally it will take a small amount of driving to adjust. Also note pressure will vary somewhat according to tire temperature rising caused by driving.

Well I have only had my Stelvio for a week but I can share that on my Giulia it was never correct on the monitor. So I ended up not trusting it and just checked it manually each time.
Thanks, John

go to the "forums" section, pick the appropriate one, and you should see a "post new topic" or something top leftish.

can't do it if you are looking at "new posts".

Thanks for some of your replies.
However, still don't know how to get this fixed or corrected.
Its unacceptable having the TPMS reading 9-10 psi off.............

if it truly doesn't work then it's warranty.
but - it is a monitor, not a gauge, and meant to tell you that you might have to check your pressures. with a gauge.
that aside, pressures will increase with sunshine, higher ambient air temps, and time driving. the harder you drive the more they will increase BUT

if you have factored all of that in, my experience says that if THROUGH DRIVING, your pressures increase by more than 10%, you started out with not enough air, if less than 10% your starting pressures were too high.

others may disagree with me on this, I don't care.
the monitors do a good job of telling me I'm within these parameters.

Setup an appointment with the dealer and take it in. I'm sure they can fix/replace/re-calibrate/beat with a hammer or whatever needs to be done.
