Features of your vehicle
Low brake vacuum pressure warning
(2.0 TGDI engine only, if equipped)
If the warning light remains on, it may
indicate that the brake vacuum pump has
any problem. Therefore you should avoid
high speed driving or sudden stop, and
you should depress the brake pedal
deeper and harder than usual in braking.
Make sure to have the brake system
checked and repaired by an authorized
HYUNDAI dealer.
Low tire pressure
telltale
The low tire pressure telltale illuminates
when one or more of your tires is signifi-
cantly underinflated.
The low tire pressure telltale will illumi-
nate after it blinks for approximately one
minute when there is a problem with the
Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
If this occurs, have the system checked
by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer as
soon as possible.
For details, refer to the TPMS on chapter
6.
WARNING - Low tire pres-
sure
Significantly low tire pressure
makes the vehicle unstable and can
contribute to loss of vehicle control
and increased braking distances.
Continued driving on tires with low
pressure will cause the tires to
overheat and fail.
WARNING - Safe stopping
The TPMS cannot alert you to
severe and sudden tire damage
caused by external factors.
If you feel any vehicle instability,
immediately take your foot off the
accelerator, apply the brakes
gradually and with light force,
and slowly move to a safe posi-
tion off the road.
WARNING
Continuous braking while driving
on steep or long downhill may
cause to descend the vacuum
level in brake booster for a time
and turn on the warning light. In
this case, shift down the trans-
mission. If the warning light illu-
minate continuously, stop the
vehicle in the safe location and
wait until the warning light goes
off.
Driving the vehicle with a warn-
ing light on is dangerous. If the
brake warning light remains on,
have the brakes checked and
repaired immediately by an
authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
