Hi, on a new shape Captur is anyone else getting check tyre pressures message, even though I have set them and initialised?

It's not an uncommon fault. I have seen it reported before, sometimes with other dashboard issues. If your car battery is fine and there are no other sensor warnings or fault codes stored it is a sensor or computer malfunction. Sounds like the dealer needs to sort it under warranty (you don't say what car/year).

Hi, its a 2020 1.3s. The trip also zeros itself and mpg readings zero. Radio is sometimes on at start up, sometimes not. Due for service in June so will ask then. No fault found is my usual answer from dealerships.

Search this and the other Renault forums so you are well prepared before the service. It has happened to several owners and Renault needs to fix it. Saying they can't find the fault is no excuse. If your dealer can't help, contact renault customer service. The fault is well enough documented.

I wonder if its cos the car is hardly used and battery voltage is low. My last car would have zero on the trip meter if it wasn't used for a while.

That's always a possibility. Renaults don't like low voltages. Other owners have had similar issues. Might even need a software update.

My Captur is 4 months old. I kept getting this warning message almost from Day 1. I checked all the tyre pressures and recalibrated the pressure settings many times in "Settings" but this false warning message always came back again a few days later. I also had other dashboard settings randomly changing themselves, such as dashboard brightness etc. Apparently there is a Renault OTS which corrects these electrical glitches and other issues. Your Renault Dealer needs to do this for you under the warranty

Do you have any more info on this? It is a common enough problem for others to be interested.

I had a lot of display errors. It was a loose fuse or relay. They fixed this so it works better now. But today I got a ”check tyre pressure” after I’ve washed my car. It could be that it was warm in the washing hall and much colder outside it so the pressure changed due to the big drop in temperature.

I was getting the message "Check Tyre Pressures" every 3 days or so. Each time i checked all 4 tyre pressures expecting to find a puncture in one of the tyres............but everytime i found all 4 tyres to be inflated correctly. It was obviously a false message showing on the dashboard. I went into settings and initialised the tyre pressures everytime, and the message disappeared for about 3 days...........then reappeared again. Also other random electrical faults appeared such as MPG restarting at zero, dashboard lights going to a dim setting, The Renault Dealer told me they undertook a yellow OTS Campaign to resolve these dashboard faults. Renault have 3 levels of Customer Campaigns. Red, Blue and yellow. Red relates to urgent important Safety Concerns whilst Yellow are normally upgrades to be undertaken the next time the vehicle enters a Renault Dealer. The Renault Dealer is advised automatically of any concerns needing attention via their computer link and vehicle VIN number

Only vaguely relevant to subject of thread(sensors,monitors),did anyone watch Top Gear last Sunday? Chris Harris in the new Defender? It apparently has 85 ecu's in its electrical system. Eighty f***ing five!!!! Not much to go wrong there then.

I stopped watching Top Gear when JC took over and turned it into bad comedy. As far as electronics, sensors and fuzzy logic in cars go I couldn't agree more. We started along this wrong path in the 80's (it leads to nowhere) when catalysts and unleaded petrol were forced upon us (don't get me started about poor environmental planning) and have ended up with cars more bloody complicated than the Apollo moon landing. My first cars had zero sensors (unless you count a fuel gauge and speedo). Timing, charging, fuel mixture were just a turn of a screw away. Even if we accept the need to regulate emissions why do the manufacturers insist in foisting unnecessary "aids" on us (tyre pressure monitors, climate control, seat belt warnings, smart charging, etc etc). I'm seriously thinking of buying a well maintained classic where I can get my hands around the engine once again.

most reliable car I had did not have much in the way of electronics. Manual windows, manual transmission, no central locking, no power steering, single carburettor with electronic ignition. Modern electronic stuff is OK while it works, but fault-finding can be a nightmare, plus will the bits still be made in 10, 20 or 30 years time to keep older models on the roads?
