  2. Connect between compressor and the vehicle power outlet using the cable and connectors.

  1. Make the ENGINE START/STOP button position on or ignition switch position on.
  2. Switch on the compressor and let it run for approximately 5 ~ 7 minutes to fill the sealant up to proper pressure. (refer to "Tires and wheels"). The inflation pressure of the tire after filling is unimportant and will be checked/corrected later. Be careful not to overinflate the tire and stay away from the tire when filling it.
