TPMS malfunctions on RS6 C8

Post by Jezzer » Wed Sep 30, 2020 8:09 am

Warning came up on dash last night so checked tyres and tyre pressure Display on MMI. Tyres okay but the reading for drivers front tyre not showing where rest of the tyres readings all there. Reset the tyre pressure settingS and after ten minute drive warning disappeared but only to reappear with another warning twenty minutes later. Tried again same thing happened again. Anyone else experience this before and how was it resolved?

Try swapping wheels around to see if the fault moves to the other side or if it stays in the same place. That should tell you if it is the sensor or the aerial that has the issue. Either way. get the dealer to sort it out.

Thanks Mike, good idea! Any idea on torque settings for wheel bolts?

Nope, I had a nice Warning that my headlights have failed and need to contact the workshop. All seemed ok as I scrolled through headlights,sidelights and Auto??? I’ve only done 1000 miles.

Did the headlight warning disappear after a while?

It stayed on until I turned ignition off. When I turned ignition back on there has been no warnings, fingers crossed🤞

Just call Audi emergency and ask for an Audi technician to come out

Yes I had it repaired yesterday. It was the TPMS control unit not the valves in the tyres at all. The tyre pressures and temperature readings showing on the MMI were going on and off on all four corners all the time so I knew then that it couldn’t have four faulty valves. Luckily they had a brand new car that they could take one off as they said it could have been a two week wait for a new one.
