SOURCE: I have a 2008 Hyundai

I assume you have checked the tires to make sure one is not low of pressure. Also have you checked the pressure in the spare tire? It may be low which would also trigger the light. If you were just seeing this ! then if would mean a tire is low of pressure. But seeing TPMS may mean there is a problem with one of the sensors in the tire. It could have been damaged when you had the new tires installed but it would be hard to prove that after 2 months. More than likely one of the sensors has gone bad. Try putting 5 pounds more air in the tire than is listed on the placard or your owner's manual and then letting it back out to the correct pressure. If the light still stays on then you have a sensor problem. The sensor is warrantied for 5 years or 60,000 miles unless it was damaged during the installation of the tires. The dealer can connect the ECU to their computer and tell exactly what is wrong. If all it requires is a reset then your owner's manual will list how it is done, but I do think that resetting the light will work. It will likely just come back on. If all else fails you may have to take it to your dealer for repair. But know that driving the vehicle with the light on if you know for sure that all tires have the proper pressure will do no harm at all. It is just a warning light for low pressure and if you do not have low pressure then no harm. Of course you will have to continually look at that light unless you cover it with a piece of black tape. Just a suggestion if you do not want to deal with it at this time. Just make darn sure the tires have the correct pressure as listed on the placard on the driver's door or in the owner's manual. Low tire pressure can be very dangerous and also will wear out your tires prematurely.

2008 Lexus ES 350 low tire pressure warning light

1) go to a gas station with an air pump. Unless u have an inflator/compressor at home with the tireattachment

2) lower all 5 air pressures including the spare in the trunk to maybe about 28 PSI

3) now reset the TPMS (on the 07 there is a button to "calibrate" the TPMS and it is located under the dash. I presume it is the same on the 08.)

4) now bring the pressue back up to 30/32 or whatever it says on the door area

If this doesn't work, it is possible u have a defective TPMS
but my bet right now would be that someone "calibrated" the TPMS to the current tire pressure so the light is constantly on. It happened to me before when my daughter was messing around and hit that button.

How do I reset the tire pressure system manually??

If you are referring to the TPMS light (warning light), there isn't one. The procedure requires the use of a system (computer) called the GDS (Global Diagnostic System). Only the Hyundai Dealerships have this system (proprietary). If you are referring to a 'Low Tire Pressure" warning light, simply raise the pressure in each tire to the manufacturer's recommended minimum pressure (psi - between 30 & 35 psi). The low tire pressure light will turn off after 5 minutes of driving.

you have tire pressure sensor that id's each tires pressure. After rotating or changing tire it must be reset to "see" pressure of each tire. Your user manual should have the proceedure. Each manufacturer is different.

At around 63,000 miles, on my way to work, I suddenly had the TPMS light come on- not the low are pressure symbol- then it went off, then it cam eon for just a few seconds, then went off. What is that...

When your tires are cold there is less psi in them. only after you drive does the air in your tires heat up and increase in psi. check your tires for 35 psi before you drive around in car. TPMS-Tire Pressure Monotoring System

I replaced my 08 accord wheels with an 09 accord wheels

thank your gorvernment. they required auto makers to implement some sort of tire pressure monitoring system in all vehicles. More than likely what needs to be done is a re-initialization of the sensors. it will most likely need to be performed by a dealer.

Hyundai Veracruz GLS 2008 Tire Pressure problem

Keep taking it back to the dealer until the fix it or give you a new car. Not that it's an immediate safety issue, it's just something that's supposed to be functioning properly. They have to address it because cars are legally required to have TPMS systems for safety. If a safety mehanism fails in your car, you can claim it is a safety issue. If you keep having problems with the TPMS light, you'll eventually ignore it. Then one day you'll have a tire going flat and you wouldn't know it.
