PAX System Warning Reset Procedure

When a tire goes flat or is very low on pressure, the multi-information display will show ‘‘PAX SYSTEM WARNING, RUN FLAT DRIVING.” After the tire is repaired or replaced, you must reset the warning indicator (and the mileage counter that supports it), no matter how far the vehicle was driven in the run flat mode.

To put the gauge control module into the self-diagnostic mode:

Turn the headlight switch to ON.

Press and hold the SELECT/RESET (Instrument panel brightness) knob.

Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).

Within 5 seconds, turn the headlights to AUTO, then to ON, and then to AUTO again.

Within 5 seconds, release the SELECT/RESET knob, then push and release the knob three times.

Once the gauge control module is in the self-diagnostic mode, press and hold the INFO button on the steering wheel for 5 seconds to get to the CUSTOMIZE MENU.

Use the INFO button to scroll through to the PAX RESET screen, then press the SEL/RESET button on the steering wheel.

Use the INFO button to scroll to the appropriate wheel, and then press the SEL/RESET button on the steering wheel to reset the PAX warning system display. The screen should read PAX RESET COMPLETED. Repeat this step for each wheel that needs to be reset.

Use the INFO button to scroll through to EXIT, then press the SEL/RESET button.

Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0) to exit the self-diagnostic mode.
