What to do in an emergency
106
Changing a tire with TPMS
If you have a flat tire, the Low Tire
Pressure will come on. Have the flat
tire repaired by an authorized
HYUNDAI dealer as soon as possi-
ble or replace the flat tire with the
spare tire.
Each wheel is equipped with a tire
pressure sensor mounted inside the
tire behind the valve stem. You must
use TPMS specific wheels. It is rec-
ommended that you always have
your tires serviced by an authorized
HYUNDAI dealer.
Even if you replace the low pressure
tire with the spare tire, the Low Tire
Pressure telltale/TPMS malfunction
indicator will remain on until the low
pressure tire is repaired and placed
on the vehicle.
After you replace the low pressure
tire with the spare tire, the TPMS
malfunction indicator may illuminate
after a few minutes because the
TPMS sensor mounted on the spare
wheel is not initiated.
Once the low pressure tire is reinflat-
ed to the recommended pressure
and installed on the vehicle or the
TPMS sensor mounted on the
replaced spare wheel is initiated by
an authorized HYUNDAI dealer, the
TPMS malfunction indicator and the
low tire pressure telltale will extin-
guish within a few minutes of driving.
If the indicator is not extinguished
after a few minutes of driving, please
visit an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
CAUTION
If original mounted tire is
replaced with the spare tire, the
TPMS sensor on the replaced
spare wheel should be initiated
and the TPMS sensor on the
original mounted wheel should
be deactivated. If the TPMS sen-
sor on the original mounted
wheel located in the spare tire
carrier still activates, the tire
pressure monitoring system
may not operate properly. Have
the tire with TPMS serviced or
replaced by an authorized
HYUNDAI dealer.
CAUTION
NEVER use a puncture-repair-
ing agent to repair and/or inflate
a low pressure tire. The tire
sealant can damage the tire
pressure sensor. If used, you
will have to replace the tire pres-
sure sensor.
