TPMS Trick for Volkswagen

Feb. 14, 2022

When dealing with a 2011-2014 VW Jetta, Golf/GTI, Tiguan, Eos or 2012-2014 Beetle, anti-lock brake system (ABS) diagnostic trouble code (DTC) 02757 may be set.

When dealing with a 2011-2014 VW Jetta, Golf/GTI, Tiguan, Eos or 2012-2014 Beetle, anti-lock brake system (ABS) diagnostic trouble code (DTC) 02757 may be set.

If the battery has a low state of charge or is disconnected, DTC 02757 (adapting tire pressure) might set in address 03 – brake electronics. The guided fault finding (GFF) test plan for this fault may prove inconclusive and the fault may not clear, even after performing tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) reset using the button in the glove box or through the multi-port fuel injection (MFI).

To resolve the fault, use the control module or vehicle self-diagnostics to run basic settings 42 under address 03-brake electronics. After selecting basic settings 42, an activation button may be present but should not be used. The display will change to “reset” once the procedure is complete. After completing basic settings, back out of brake electronics and remove the scan tool. Reset TPMS by pressing the “set” button in the glove box or making appropriate selection through MFI, and then road test to verify that the fault does not return.
