How To Set Mazda Tire Pressure

Today’s vehicles have all sorts of bells and whistles courtesy of modern technology. There are few things your vehicle won’t alert you to, in fact! One such alert involves your Mazda’s tire pressure. Your car can let you know if the pressure is inadequate. Improperly inflated tires can lead to a number of problems.

Here’s some really good news for any number of car owners: It’s not particularly complicated to know how to set Mazda tire pressure, so you don’t have to be an automotive service technician to do it.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

In all four tires, the air pressure is monitored by the TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system). The system warns the driver if low pressure tire exists in one or more tires. In the instrument cluster, the warning light for the tire pressure monitoring system goes on and a beeping sound is heard. From ABS wheel speed sensors, data is sent and used so the system can operate properly.

Resetting The Air Pressure In Your Mazda

  • Start with your vehicle turned off.
  • To the “on” position, turn the key. Do not start the engine, however.
  • Now, the TPMS reset button should be held down. When, three times, the pressure light blinks, you can release the button.
  • The car can now be started. But, for the sensor to refresh, wait 20 minutes.

Proper Settings

Various makes and models may have different recommended tire pressure. Here are some examples of recommended tire pressure levels and the Mazda they match with:

  • 29 psi (pounds per square inch) for the Mazda MX-5 Miata
  • For 20-inch tires, 34 PSI; for 18-inch tires, 36 psi – for the Mazda CX-9
  • For 19-inch tires, 36 psi; for 17-inch tires, 34 psi – for the Mazda CX-5
  • 36 psi for the Mazda CX-30
  • For rear tires, 33 PSI; for front tires, 36 psi – for the Mazda CX-3
  • For 19-inch tires, 35 psi; for 17-inch tires, 36 psi – for the Mazda6

Improperly Inflated Tires – What Happens?

As you travel, your tires go through a lot of stress. So, a crucial part of routine car maintenance is maintaining whatever tire pressure is recommended for your vehicle. Movement is more effectively transferred when your tires are inflated properly. This means several things:

  • Improved fuel consumption
  • Increased safety
  • Better performance
