    Hey guys,

    I'm new to the forum so please bare with me! I put my winter wheels and tyres on at the weekend, and my tyre pressure warning has come on (expected!). How do I reset it?

    Pictures or videos would be a great help. So far my facebook friends have been useless :D

    My model is 2010 A3 2.0 TDI S-Line DSG (140BHP)

    Press and hold for a few seconds. Its reset when the light on the button goes off.

    I think on the 2010+ models the reset is in the DIS menu.

    On my 57 Plate S3 the TPMS button was on the dash.

    Is it a different set up now?

    hey guys, sorry I haven't had time to go take a photo. All I can see when navigating through using the stalk is the the MPG/Miles to empty etc. Do i need to hold it down or something? Can't believe how confusing this is getting lol

    There should be a button on the bottom of the wiper stalk.

    Keep hitting that until you get a menu up with about three options. One of them will be check.

    Try going through this setting to see if its in there?

    Remember and reset it whilst stationary as it wont let you do it when the car is in motion.

    feel a bit silly really, but in my defence I did ask for photos and my friends are all trying to say they told me that option already...!! haha.

    Reset button on the stalk, pressed it a couple of times then got a set menu, which led to the tyre pressure set.
