Hyundai Elantra: Low tire pressure telltale - Tires pressure monitoring system (TPMS) - What to do in an emergency - Hyundai Elantra HD 20062010 Owners ManualHyundai Elantra: Low tire pressure telltale


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

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

Immediately reduce your speed, avoid hard cornering and anticipate increased stopping distances. You should stop and check your tires as soon as possible. Inflate the tires to the proper pressure as indicated on the vehicles placard or tire inflation pressure label located on the drivers 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 compact spare tire. Because the compact spare tire is not equipped with a tire pressure sensor, the TPMS malfunction indicator may go on and the Low Tire Pressure telltale still turn on after restarting and about 20 minutes of continuous driving before you have the low-pressure tire repaired and replaced on the vehicle.

CAUTION CAUTION

In winter or cold weather, the low tire pressure telltale 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 proportional 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 greatly higher or lower, you should check the tire inflation pressure and adjust the tires to the recommended tire inflation pressure.

WARNING - Low pressure damage 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 will cause the tires to overheat and fail.
