I have installed new tires around 2K miles ago and TPMS is light on yesterday.
Ok, is it " [b]TPMS " or the low tire indicator (yellow tire outline with [b]! inside)
What should I do?
Do what you need to do, [b]TPMS --> some sort of electrical malfunction/sensor fault... [b](!) illuminated, correct the air in the tires.. read your owner manual, it is explained in there..
Why the TPMS light is on?
[b]TPMS --> sensor or module/wiring malfunction
[b](!) --> tire pressure low/high, excessive pressure difference somewhere
Is it safe to drive when this light is on?
[b]TPMS --> drive it till the cows come home
[b](!) --> correct the air in the tires, not good to drive on flat tire(s)
Is it covered under factory warranty?
Fault of material and workmanship, yes, broken sensor when remove/install new tires, no.
I have 33K miles on my sonata. If it is not covered, how much it is going to cost me?
Depends on what the actual problem/part found is, and its cost to repair or replace, you'll have diag/scan time, parts and labor..
Any help is appreciated...
Thanks to all of you for your replies. I took my car to oil-change today and they reset the TPMS sensor and now it is off. They did not say any reason why it is ON.
My steering wheel is vibrating little bit when I go at 70-80 MPH in freeways, so they have asked me to re balance the tires as the tires are recently installed. I will have to take it to the tire shop tomorrow.
