After a quick search I did not see any threads on how to clear the amber warning message for low tire inflation. Has to be simple right? Just find the line in settings about tires and clear?

Today after driving 119 miles with no problems at 3° C OAT, I got in my car to go to the grocery store and what to my wondering eyes should appear but a yellow low tire inflation light, oh dear.

I did not get a screenshot, of the first warning, however, the right instrument cluster had amber vertical bands both sides of the dial and stated low tire inflation. I checked tire pressures on the left instrument cluster and the right front tire was low by one psi. However the center consul was showing -4 on the right front tire.

Let’s go to the manual, that always works. Page 249 US version.
Followed the procedure (highlighted yellow) and can you believe it nothing. This did not clear the problem, still yellow warning inflation low. I even added extra air up to 39 psi in the right front tire to no avail. Deflated front right tire to match left front.

Center screen did not give me an option to clear the message even though tire inflation was showing all good and matching.
Decided to tick the Full load box which I did activating red messages on the instrument cluster right side -9 rear tires.
Unticked full load and presto changeo the instrument warning message cleared. (PFM).

I was not able to find any other way or guidance in the manual to clear the message. If anyone has had this issue and has another procedure(s) would love to hear them.

Thank you.

My understanding is that you have to drive around a bit for TPM to update pressure measurments. it will not update or measure a change if the car is stationary.

I did drive for a few miles and top speed of 50 after inflating tire per the manual and then took the images. Thanks for the thought.

Normally you should be able to get a reliable tire pressure read as of 15 mph, but is 35 psi in front and/or 33 in the back not too low anyway?

Porsche dealer set these I asked the same question and they said with our snow they were leaving the psi a little bit low.
