Hyundai Santa Fe: Low tire pressure indicator - Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - What to do in an emergencyHyundai Santa Fe: Low tire pressure indicator

When the tire pressure monitoring system warning indicator is illuminated, one

When the tire pressure monitoring system warning indicator is illuminated, one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.

If the indicator illuminates, immediately reduce your speed, avoid hard cornering and anticipate increased stopping distances.You should check your tires as soon as possible.

Inflate the tires to the proper pressure as indicated on the vehicle’s placard or tire inflation pressure label located on the driver’s side center pillar outer panel. If you cannot reach a service station or if the tire cannot hold the newly added air, replace the low pressure tire with the spare tire.

Then the Low Tire Pressure indicator may flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously illuminated after restarting and about 10 minutes of continuous driving before you have the low pressure tire repaired or replaced on the vehicle.

CAUTION

In winter or cold weather, the low tire pressure indicator may be illuminated if the tire pressure was adjusted to the recommended tire inflation pressure in warm weather. It does not mean your TPMS is malfunctioning because the decreased temperature leads to a lowering of tire pressure.

When you drive your vehicle from a warm area to a cold area or from a cold area to a warm area, or the outside temperature is higher or lower, you should check the tire inflation pressure and adjust the tires to the recommended cold tire inflation pressure.

WARNING - Low pressure damage

Significantly low tire pressure makes the vehicle unstable and can contribute to loss of vehicle control and increased braking distances.

Continued driving on low pressure tires can cause the tires to overheat and fail.
