TPMS Failure - not the same thing you would get if a tyre was underinflated, an orange light with a tyre in it?

If it were the same as an MG3:

Specifically on that the first thing to do on the pre-facelift MG3 which was on sale approximately the same time would be to check all the tyres, re-inflate any if necessary, and reset TPMS on the trip computer.

Hi,thanks for the reply,i think my problem lies with the fact that i am having the wrong size tyres on the car.I am running 22545/17 and its suppose to be 215/50/17.Whem i disconnect the battery for a while then everything resets and its fine for the 1st 2km.It then reads the wrong wheel circumfrens and the brings up the traction control failure alarm together with the tpms failure alarm.The tpms dont work if the traction control is not working.It also uses the wheel circumfrens to detemine a flat tyre.

That is absolutely correct, the system relies on you having the correct Wheels and Tyres fitted as it looks at the Speed that the wheel is turning! It not only tells you if you have an under inflated Tyre, it tells you if you have an over inflated Tyre, so bigger wheels and it thinks it has over Inflated Tyres. Don' forget also, you have to tell the system that you have changed Tyres even the Correct size!
On the MK2 it is even more important to fit all the Correct Wheels and Tyres, for the the System to run correctly. I hope this has helped.
