    I have a CLS 320 on loan whilst my car is in for minor damage after someone hit the rear bumper on my C230, but it has no Drivers Handbook with it and I keep getting the RED message about checking the tyres and resetting the Run Flat Indicator.
    The tyres seem to be ok but I wish to reset the warning indicator, "How do I carry out the operation".
    Regards.
    P.S. the CLS makes my 230 seem like a snail.

    You can try to reset it by going to the menu where it displays outside air temp and then scroll through the menu until you get to the tpm menu and then if i remember correctly you press the button on the cluster and then press the plus button, but when you get to the menu it should give you directions of what to do.

    If it is flashing up in read it means there is a problem with the system and it needs to go into the dealer as soon as as it may have a slow puntcure on the car

    Thanks Willow132,
    Can you please confirm which button on what cluster, there are so many and not having the handbook does not help much. I have found my way around most of it. Also should I be driving it and ignoring the warning?

    I think it is on the left hand side of the instrument cluster.

    I personally wouldnt be driving it with that warning as for that warning to come on the pressure has to drop quite low

    Thanks, I dont have the problem anymore as it has gone back to the hire company, They wanted it back as they hada need for it and were only leeting me use it as a perk because they did not have a C200 available at the time, I now have a new C200 instead. I did mention to them about the warning and they told me that they had just had the tyres changed and it looked like the company had not reset the indicator. No sign of the tyres being under pressure anyway.
