Fault codes- bigger wheels and tyres

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I have recently put some slightly bigger wheels and tyres on my 8V, as I set off after fitting them It shows that I have a tyre pressure system fault, ESC fault, hill hold assist unavailable and start/stop fault. I had none of these show up before the new size wheels and tyres, any advice on how to fix this? 

thanks, Joe.

Hello Joe,

Thanks for joining the forum and posting your plea. 
All the fault codes you show -and more - could (in caps) be associated with a below par battery, but it would be a bit of a coincidence that these should be displayed immediately after you have fitted different wheels sizes - and tyres. 

What size wheels and tyres were originally fitted? 
What size wheels and tyres are now fitted? 
Are the current wheel and tyre sizes listed as alternative fitment for your model, and if so, have you adjusted the tyre pressures to their recommended level? 
Kind regards,
