The deflation detection system is a driving aid, but which does not absolve the driver from the need to be vigilant and responsible.

This system does not dispense with the requirement to check the tyres on a regular basis (see Vehicle identification), to make sure that the vehicle is behaving correctly and to avoid premature tyre wear arising from driving too fast etc.

Do not forget to check the pressure in the spare wheel.

Any repair or replacement of a tyre on a wheel that is equipped with a sensor must be carried out by a CITROËN dealer.
The system may suffer from temporary interference caused by radio transmissions on neighbouring frequencies.
