Tire Mobility Kit
Posted 29 May 2011 - 01:15 PM
In the manual it states something about recharging/replacing the bottle every four years. I doubt there is any wifi/bluetooth signals from the kit to the car. Anyone else had this warning?

The kit should be serviced after 4 years. Apparently the car has a date function in the computer and this warning is set to appear every year leading up the 4 year period. My vehicle was coming up on the end of the first year of service and hence, the warning. If I didn't do anything, the warning would appear every time I started the vehicle. So, I found the reset feature and now the warning is set to come on after the 2nd year. It's necessary to do this reset every year if you do not want to see the warning. I'm thinking this feature may only be on vehicles with a tow package.

Where is this reset feature and how do you do it?

To reset the "service tire mobility kit" message yourself, you use the "setup" button (located between the info and reset buttons) above the display screen for audio, maps, etc. Simply press the "setup" button until you come to tire mobility kit option. Once this option is displayed, press the "reset" button and it will reset the message to appear again in 1, 2, 3, or 4 years. I never use my Flex for towing purposes so I pressed the "reset" button 4 times so I will not have to see the message again for 4 years. Hopefully someone finds this post helpful!

Let's move this topic to wheels and tires so that others can find it more easily
