Default Tire Pressure Light

Hi everyone,

my warning light for my tire pressure came on, I fixed the tires and now it won't go off. Is there a reset button I need to press? I can't find it in the manual

TIA!

It takes driving a few miles for it to check it again and turn the light off but if the pressure is correct it should go off on its own after a bit of driving

Thanks! My husband takes my car to commute to work (70+ miles round trip) I'll let him know!

Consider nitrogen and the added benefits it offers to you regarding pressure stability and anti-aging effects on the intrrnal rubber components.

Does anyone know what the "allowable" operating range is for the sensor?

At what pressure does the indicator illuminate?

I think the hyundai is a little overly sensitive, my tires were fine :/ pressure wise lol I'm not used to the hightech stuff, my jeep was pretty primitive.

Mine came on when one of my tires got to about 24.5 PSI due to a nail. Just remember if the light flashes for one minute and then goes solid, it means you've got a system fault.

From all I've read and owners I have talked to, it's in the 24 psi range. And at that pressure, react to it ASAP! With "low profile" tires, you don't have a lot of "low" left.

It still hasn't gone off yet, he drove 47 miles. I really really really do not want to go into the dealership for this
