Can anyone help me figure out how to access it? When the car is running and I select Menu, I can see "Vehicle Info" at the bottom of the menu list but it is grayed out and I cannot select it. The Owner's Manual states that "Vehicle Info" can only be selected before the car is started. How is this accomplished? If I turn the electronics on by pressing the Start button without applying the breaks, I still cannot seem to access this menu.

I want to access it so I can change the setting for the TPMS which somehow got switched to "Light Load." I am sick of seeing the warning when I start the car that the TPMS is set to Light Load and want to change it back to its default Normal setting.

go into your car, press the ignition button once without stepping on the brake. all lights should illuminate but engine is still off. go into menu, now you should be able to access

Thanks - tried that before but did not work for some reason. Just tried again and could now access the menu. Thanks again!

Car has to be stationary to access the add'l menu. Maybe you were moving before? I don't think it matters if the engine is on or not. I've accessed the menu at a stoplight. You just can't be moving. Of course, it could be yet another software issue if you couldn't access it when stationary. ;-)

Thanks for the tip. Was stationary with engine off the first time I unsuccessfully tried - I suspect another software glitch. Could just as likely be User Error though, as I have done my share of fumbling around trying to learn the ins and outs of this vehicle.

I changed it to normal but every time I start the car i still get the warning (now with normal load) and still needs me to confirm. What gives?

I asked the dealer about normal vs light load with no real educated response. When they had to re-program my GPS, they put it back to light load and I have just left it. Luckily I get no TPMS indicators.

From experience often it helps to call the manufacture and see what answer you can get out of them, most the front line employees at dealership don't know much.

Yep, I noticed this too. I just changed to the heavier load setting to give me the recommended tire pressure specs so I could fill the tires to match. When I check the pressure now in the vehicle menu, it gives me the tire pressure, which is all I need. I'm not sure that the fact that it returns to "normal mode" or light load settings even matters....

Light load setting probably don't matter at all, the way I see it they probably thought since they give a heavy load setting, just to let the mass of owners make sense of it they have to offer a setting that reverts to something lower than what the higher setting offers.

That I can't tell you. I always just hit OK to make it go away or ignore it and it goes away on its own...

I did the same a couple months ago and also still got the warning you mention. I brought my DS to the shop this week to address 4 different issue including a completely dead battery. The service guys replaced the old battery which would no longer hold a charge. Since the weak battery was replaced, I no longer receive the warning message upon start up. I wonder if a weak battery may cause this (and other warning messages) to show?

Never mind. The warning message only went away for a day. It returned in all its glory today.

Yes it does. You can check the current pressures before u start the engine by accessing the tire pressure menu. It disables the menu when you start the car... Or at least when it's moving.

Hey Phil,

Just wondering how you came out on this issue? My '15 DS keeps reverting to "Light Load" regardless of how many times I set it to "Normal Load". Very annoying.

Very curious about your results.

Thanks
