"Correct Tire Pressure"

I have been receiving this message in my dashboard for quite awhile now. Maybe around 2-3 weeks? I have a c300 and new to the brand and was just wondering how i should come about to this problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Did you check and adjust tire pressure in all 4 tires (cold) to recommended pressure?

If the tire pressure is correct on all four, I believe you can reset the system to recognize the current pressure as the correct pressure.

I had similar situation when I changed tire pressures from 32 all around to 30 front & 32 rear (I reset the system after the change). The manual didn't help...

I found that this sequence (step 1 to 4) will re-produce this message pretty reliably:
1. In the morning, turn on the engine.
2. Before you move the car, reset the system to use current pressure.
3. Drive away.
4. In a few minutes, this message ("Correct Tire Pressure") shows up. No other red/yellow error/warning icon(s).
5. Reset again (while driving), this message will be cleared and will never come again.

Don't understand the logic of this message...

I've been getting the same thing every now and then for the past 3 weeks as well (weather getting colder?), checked the tire pressure yesterday and seems ok so reset the setting in the menu after you've checked the tire pressure and think it's ok.

I was getting the "correct tire pressure" warning after the dealer filled the tires with nitrogen - the warning came on after turning off ignition at end of every trip, tried resetting baseline when cold, still got warning at end of trip... pressures were ok, took to dealer, no more warnings but they did say the pressure was low all around..

I can't seem to kick the TPMS "Check Tire Pressure (in red)" and "Correct Tire Pressure" messages. Took it in to mechanic, everything looked fine. I F*CKING hate these useless TPMS's. Every time I get in the car I get this message. I've tried the manual calibration to no avail. I'm thinking of going to a gas station, letting out air, calibrating, drive around block, then put air back in to 30 F, 32 R.

All who get TPMS warning messages (without a tyre problem), either try over-inflating a bit or have the TPMS control unit programmed to allow a bit lower absolute minimum tyre pressure.

The point is that the system works with two figures, the learned target when the user activates the system (or the system activates itself new thresholds when it detects tyres being inflated) or the lowest allowed figure. One cannot set the monitored level lower than the system minimum. Also if the set value is too close to the minimum, minor variations tend to bring the warning. See earlier posts, several owners have had the system calibrated for new minimum levels.

Of course one should be absolutely sure about the gauge accuracy when checking tyres.
