How can I tell if I have a flat? Will the runflat symbol appear if a tyre is simply underinflated? I was thinking that I could pump up all 4 tyres and see if the symbol disappears, and provided it doesn't come back, this should indicate that the problem was one or more of the tyres just needed to be pumped up, rather than a flat?
Have you checked the tire pressures?
