Re: TPMS light on 2006 Kia Sportage
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 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.
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.
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.
Thank you for using FIxya and good luck
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.
