+1First thing I would do is to get a good tire pressure gauge and check the actual tire pressures the old fashioned way to verify the validity of the message. Then according to the manufactures recommended tire pressures or your personal preference, adjust the pressures if necessary, reset the system which is easy and covered in your owners manual and go from there. If the warnings return you will probably need to drop by the dealership to discuss. PS Keep in mind when adjusting tire pressures its important to consider whether or not the tires are warm or cold!
The easiest thing to remember is to check the pressures first thing in the morning before driving anywhere. The heat buildup from using the tire will raise the pressure. If the pressure is low, remember how low it is versus what it shows on label on the driver's door jamb area. Then, when you reach the gas station, add that amount. Of course, by the time you reach the station, the pressure probably will be higher, but still add the difference you saw when you measured it cold.
Also, tire pressure will change about 1 psi for every 10 degrees Fahrenheit the weather changes. So, if there are seasonal changes for you, be sure to keep that in mind.
BTW...how's it going with the transmission and manual shifting? I see there are a few things in your dad's garage likely with a stick shift...ask for some lessons and then the manual shifting on the C Class will make even more sense!
Well, he must be quite successful at what he does for a living...I am just about exactly 40 years older than you, but, way back when, I had the same situation with my dad. You seem to be doing well nevertheless......Anyway, I'm out here in the "flyover" state of Michigan, but with so many forum members in Southern California, maybe one near Anaheim with a 6 speed will pm you to arrange a meet-up to give you some tips. Anyone out there want to help a nice young MB enthusiast try out that 3rd pedal?!?!?!:wave:thanks everyone!
it's going well! manual shifting is really fun to use and im learning more about my car as i drive it more.
haha part of the downfall to having a dad with that many cars is he's not usually around at home to teach me that kind of stuff
