    Hi,

    I have a VWS Jetta 2010 lately I noticed that the switch for the air pressure is on all the time. Therefore, I tried adding air to the tires but, it didn't seem to fix the issue. I Don't want to take it to the dealership because I will end up paying a lot of money.

    Kindly appreciate your suggestions.

    Is the pressure you put in the tires adequate (at least what the placard says)? Also, are all tires within a few PSI of each other? If everything is ok with the tires then take it to the dealer, the car should be under warranty unless you have a lot of miles on it already.

    Is there a spare tire in the back with a pressure sensor in it? Is the tire pressure ok?

    Hello Valerie10,

    I bought a VW Jetta 2010 about 8 months ago. Couple of weeks ago I had the same problem as you are describing. The air pressure switch came on and was quite disappointed at first since I have only had the car for 8 months. Than I took it to the gas station and pumped the tires as per the instruction of the car manual. Well that didn't fix it but I drove off.

    Next time I went to fuel up I did check the tires again. I found out that the first air pressure sensor was way out. This time I got all the tires exactly the same pressure as this petrol station had a digital air pressure meter... The air switch on the dash went out and I am happy as Larry again :Banane17:

    I have to say I love my Jetta.
