The Tire Pressure Telltale light is on for no apparent reason. Have less than 2000 miles on it. Checked tire pressure (all tires are at 30 psi). Anyone else had this problem? Just an electrical glitch?

Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks.

Do you know what the Hyundai recommended tire pressure is?

Air them up to 35, drive down the street to turn of the yellow (!).. and carry on... around here all the molecules have contracted due to the frigid temps, and we have them yellow lights coming in like no tomorrow...


People just cannot seem to maintain their tires these days, so .GOV has pushed the TPMS thing on all of use.

30psi sounded a little low to me and I thought it would be a good idea to know what the recommended pressure is.

i laugh at the way the world operates these days. people buy a new car with a great warranty and expect the car to do the thinking for them. news flash READ THE OWNERS MANUAL! remember when it was common place to check tire pressure and oil level at every fill up? i bet only 10% of people that buys new cars these days do that. u got a new car yes, but tires havent changed since they got rid of bias plys....only now u have aluminum rims that seem to lose pressure more than steel rims for whatever reason. cold weather shrinks rubber, thats why a basketball wont bounce very good when its outside in 20 degree weather. heat expands the molecules in rubber causing pressure descrepencys. thats why any diy'r and any good tech should inflate their tires at least 5 psi more in cold weather. do that and MAINTAIN that during cold weather and you wont see the dreaded low tire pressure light.

Cold tire psi should be 32 psi so 30 psi is too low,but the low tire psi light shouldn't come until a tire goes down around 28 psi. Get a good tire gauge and get a accurate psi reading and set psi accordingly. Are you using a portable gps? On my 09 elantra every time I have my gps on the dash my low tire psi light comes on. I have to move my gps around to find the sweet spot where the tire light goes off.

HEHEHEE... Been brought up at training, a dealer out there has killed off their warranty" TPMS concerns because they found that some portable GPS and phone charger cords emit RF from the cord/NAV unit, and the RF interfere with TPMS module typicall adjacent to the power cord location..

Seems like all the vehicles I see with "TPMS" illuminated have a power cords in the car, and the fault code is almost always for RR Channel Failure...
