Tire Pressure Monitoring System

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System on Hyundai models monitors the air pressure in each of your four tires with wheel-mounted pressure sensors. When tire pressure is below the normal threshold, or a rapid leak is detected, the Hyundai tire pressure light will illuminate on your dashboard.

What to Do with Hyundai Tire Pressure Light

When your Hyundai Tire Pressure comes on, follow these guidelines:

  • Check the air pressure of all four tires.
  • Adjust each tire’s air pressure to the specified pressure listed on the driver’s door or in your owner’s manual.
  • Repair or replace tires if any damage is noted. This may require bringing your vehicle to a dealership like Riverside Toyota for service.
  • Once adjustments or repairs are complete, ensure that the warning light turns off. If it doesn’t, recheck tire pressure. If it still remains on, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System may have a malfunction.

Importance of Tire Pressure

Why is tire pressure important? There are safety and performance risks associated with both under and overinflated tires. Overinflated tires may result in uneven wear, and the rigidity of an overinflated tire may result in a greater chance of damage from potholes or road hazards. Meanwhile, underinflated tires also cause premature wear, increase rolling resistance, and decrease fuel economy.

Maintaining proper tire pressure ensures:

  • Longer tread life
  • Fuel economy boosts
  • Improved handling
