Hyundai Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Your new Hyundai vehicle is smartly equipped with the Hyundai TPMS, a tire pressure monitoring system that keeps tabs on the exact pressure in each tire. Once you start driving, your vehicle will start evaluating the tires’ pressure levels and display their measurements on your dash within a few minutes. If any tire’s pressure is too low, this system will alert you and indicate which tire needs air and how much. If a tire flashes red, it is in need of assistance.

If your system is alerting you to an issue, despite having just filled your tires to the proper psi, it’s possible a service professional may need to perform a Hyundai TPMS reset. Lakewood drivers can visit the experts at Planet Hyundai service center for help.

Tire Pressure Tips

Tires with low-pressure experience increased of friction between the road and the tire. This can result in extra wear and tear on your wheels, which lead to a call to Hyundai Roadside Assistance, a possible accident, or preventable repairs. To help avoid an unwanted incident, keep the following in mind:

  • Make a habit of checking your tire pressure on a regular basis, at least once a week. You can do this by viewing your TPMS Hyundai display on your instrument cluster.
  • Depending on driving habits, tires can naturally lose 1-2 psi per month.
  • Pressure can fluctuate with shifts in outside temperature, especially in extreme cold.
  • If you notice a tire needs air frequently, check over your tire tread. It’s possible there is a small hole or nail somewhere in the tread. This can be an easy repair when caught early.
