TPMS light on 2006 Kia Sportage

We just had our tires replaced on our 06 Kia Sportage. Now the TPMS light is on. What is this and what do we need to do about it?

Also, now the tires sound extremely loud while driving. We bought all season tires, but I've never had this loud of a sound on any other car with this tires.

Your Tire Pressure Management System is extremely sensitive. Some makes are known to trip with just 5-8 psi. difference. Have the pressure checked again on all tires including the spare. Make sure the spare is up to proper inflation. VERY important. It is possible that the sensor inside the tire as well as any wiring associated with the system under the wheel wells could have been damaged. Start by making sure the pressures are all within system range. The owners manual will stipulate this and all info you may need to troubleshoot on your own. good luck.

Tpms light is on have a 2008 kia sportage


TPMS is the tire pressure monitoring system. This is usually because one of your tires is low.
Here is what KIA says about it:
Once the low pressure tire is reinflamed to the recommended pressure and installed on the vehicle, the TPMS malfunction indicator and the low tire pressure telltale will be extinguished. If the low pressure and TPMS malfunction indicators are not extinguished after about 20 minutes of continuos driving, please visit an authorized KIA Dealer.

If you have to bring it to the dealer, they will most likely have to replace one of the tire pressure sensors.

Thanks for asking and good luck!

After replacing a broken tire pressure sensor the tpms light came on. How do I reset it or turn it off? 2006 Kia Sportage.


The 2006 tire pressure monitoring system will automatically reset after driving approximately 20minutes above 20MPH. It is important to note that if you go below 20MPH during this diagnostic drive cycle the counter in the TPMS module wil reset requiring you to start over. The easiest thing to do is go on a highway. If after this drive cycle the TPMS warning light is still in you most likely have another problem in the system with a code stored in the module.

Looks like horseshoe with exclamation point


Indicates your tire pressure is less then 32 psi on one or more of your tires. Once you have all your tire pressure at 32 PSI, the car's TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) will recalibrate and reset. Once reset the light should go off if all tire pressure are the same.

You're problem could likely be a problem with the TPMS, or (TirePressure Monitoring System) - sensor. There is one in each wheel, andit's recommended that with any tire changes that they be rebuilt orreplaced. I'm not sure if you've reset the tire pressure switch

Sometimes, to reset the tire pressure light you need to get the special tool.

Hope helped with this. Good luck.

06 kia sportage airbag control module


If your refering to the light on top of the dash that says "psgr air bag not connected" here;s the deal.

The module is activated when someone sits in the seat. Turn the key on and the notification will light. Go around to the psgr side of the car and sit in the seat and the light should go out.

TPMS on 2006 Chevy Impala


I have an 05 impala and there is a setting in the Radio to reset the oil life and TPMS system, I'd look in the owners manual to see how to access this feature on the 06 but it should be there.
