How to reset low tire pressure light on Hyundai Tucson

Your vehicle is equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system that is designed to display the air pressure of each tire while driving.

The sensors will start to display the individual pressures within a few minutes of driving.


The tire pressure monitoring system allows you to see the correct tire pressure and also warns you if the pressure gets too low. When the system detects that one or more of the tires’ air pressure is low, the tire pressure indicator will come on and the display will indicate which tire or tires need more air pressure.

Low Tire Pressure

When the tire pressure monitoring system warning indicators are illuminated and the warning message is displayed on the cluster LCD display, one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.

The LCD position indicator will indicate which tire is significantly under-inflated by illuminating the corresponding position light. If any of your tire pressures are indicated as being low, 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 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. The Low Tire Pressure LCD position indicator will remain on and the TPMS Malfunction Indicator may blink for one minute and then remain illuminated until you have the low pressure tire repaired and replaced on the vehicle.

Resetting low tire pressure

There is no option to reset low tire pressure on Hyundai Tucson, if you’re seeing the warning symbol and all your vehicle’s tires have recommended pressure, then you will have to visit your Hyundai dealership to get all the sensors checked by a professional.

Note: If there is a malfunction with the TPMS, the individual tire pressures in the cluster LCD display will not be available.


Here are a few tips to maintain your vehicle’s tires and air pressure.

  • Monitor your tire pressure periodically, once a week for example, by viewing the tire pressure monitoring system display in the instrument cluster after driving your vehicle for a short distance.
  • Please be aware that tires naturally can lose one to two PSI per month, especially if your vehicle is not driven regularly.
  • Note also that tire pressures can fluctuate with temperature so that it is always best to check the tire pressures after you first start driving your vehicle.
  • Check to make sure your tires are inflated according to the information placard located on the driver’s side door jam on your vehicle.
