Kia Soul. Checking the tire inflation pressure

1. After driving approximately 7~10 km ( 4~6 miles or about 10 minutes), stop at a suitable location.
2. Connect connection hose (10) of the compressor directly to the tire valve.
3. Connect between compressor and the vehicle power outlet using the cable and connectors.
4. Adjust the tire inflation pressure to 230 kPa (33 psi). With the ignition switched on, proceed as follows.

- To increase the inflation pressure: Switch on the compressor, position I. To check the current inflation pressure setting, briefly switch off the compressor.
