How to reset TPMS button in Hyundai: everything you need to know

No one likes the warning lights flashing up on the dash, especially the dreaded EML (engine management light).

But luckily for you, the tyre pressure warning light is nothing to worry about and can be turned off without a hassle.

So... how do I reset the TMPS button?

The TPMS button on most Hyundai models can be found underneath the steering wheel, and is a small black button with a tyre pressure symbol on it.

And if you're looking to reset it, you have a few options:

Manual reset - with the car off, turn the key to the "on" position but don't start the engine. Then, press and hold the TMPS button until it blinks three times and then release. Start the car and drive for around 20 minutes and the TPMS light should knock off.

Inflate and deflate tyres - this method involves manually forcing re-initialisation of the TMPS system. Inflate all your tyres to 3 PSI over their recommendation, then deflate them all (bare with us). Finally, re-inflate all the tyres to the correct PSI (there should be a sticker located inside your driver's door) and this should allow the TMPS system to recognise the new pressure reading and reset the light.

Drive and reset - this relies on your Hyundai's auto-calibration feature. First, make sure all the tyres are inflated to the correct PSI. Drive for at least 10 minutes at 50mph or higher. Then, this should allow the TMPS sensors to collect data and potentially reset the light during your drive.

If the light doesn't switch off after 20 minutes, you might need to get it looked at by our Hyundai-qualified technicians at Blackpool Hyundai
