there is a black plastic post on the left hand side, which could be used? its a bit disconcerting that not only does the flap not lock, but there is no cover on the nozzle either, normally one of them locks???Mine doesn't, can't see how it would. Odd really as most do these days
I believe there are anti syphon measures built into the tube, but something which locks the flap would give piece of mind. whats to stop anyone putting something into the tank, I don't really know how the cover on the nozzle worksHi, 500X fuel cap / flap does not lock. I was told that the fuel tank cannot be accessed without the correct sized nozzle being inserted, have a look and you will see a mechanism sealing off the hole. This is why you have a special fuel tank access pipe in the emergency kit. Doesn't stop anyone being able to syphon the fuel tank using a similar pipe!
I thought the numbers should be there all the time, telling me what the tyre pressures are? I have attached a screenshot from the TPMS video on youtube.Looks normal if tyre presure drops then it will display on which wheel. I recently punctured the front near side and an orange light appeared on dash, tmps warning appeared on main screen and on mobile app. After repair you need to reset the system.
I think your right, just looking the the handbook, its an indirect system based on the speed sensors not valve sensors, so there will be no reading until a pressure drops and has been driven on for the sensor to pick it up. the youtube video is for a direct system probably installed in the US.I'm pretty sure the TPMS doesn't ever display actual pressures, just alerts you when one or more drops. For this reason it should be reset every time you inflate your tyres with routine maintenance etc
My next question: Im pretty sure my TPMS isn't working, here is a photo with the car running, are there supposed to be tyre pressures next to the wheels?
