Tyre pressure reset - where is the TPMS button on a Kia Sportage?

No one likes warning lights flashing up on the dash, especially the dreaded Engine Management Light (EML).

But luckily for you, the tyre pressure warning light on your Kia Sportage is nothing to worry about and can be easily fixed.

So... where is the TMPS reset button?

The TPMS reset button on a Kia Sportage is located under the steering wheel and is a small black button with a tyre pressure symbol on it.


If you have a newer Kia Sportage model (2023 onwards), you may not have a TPMS reset button. The newer models have a self-resetting TPMS system, which means that the light will automatically turn off once the tyre pressure has been corrected and you've driven the car a short distance - giving it time to get its bearings, so to speak.

To reset the TPMS light on a Kia Sportage with a TPMS reset button, follow these steps:

  1. Park your car on a level surface
  2. Turn the engine off
  3. Press and hold the TMPS button until the warning light on the dashboard blinks three times
  4. Release the button
  5. Start the engine and drive the car for at least 20 minutes

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

But if it does switch off, great - we're glad this guide was of help to you.
