How can I reset Tire press lite on my 2013 Sonata

The pressure indicator will go out when the tire pressure is up to what it should be. This means that if your tire was filled to 36psi and it should be 38psi, since it's close indicator will go out. Remember that heat expands and cold contracts. When it started to get cold the pressure dropped inside your tire to the point where it set off the indicator. Look at the side wall of your tire just above the rim. You will see writing there that will tell you what the maximum air pressure should be for your tire. You will be safe filling the tire to within 2psi of maximum pressure. If you continue to experience indicator light on, this will mean a leak in your tire, possibly due to a puncture in thread, or a leak between tire and wheel. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Dashboard tire pressure light is on

The tire pressure sensor light being on (after the initial warm-up/self-test when the ignition is turned on) means one of 3 things: a) you have a tire with low pressure (including the spare), b) one of the tire pressure sensors has a bad battery, or c) the system has a malfunction. First, make sure all tires have good pressure and then have your local dealership/auto shop attempt to reset the fault. If this doesn't work, you are in for a difficult time dealing with the other two issues (batteries are not cheap, and neither is diagnosing a bad system)...sorry!

That signal is from your tire monitoring sensors, telling you that there is air pressure difference between tires. The tire pressure should be same in all tires.

Not sure what "exp 18" means...but the Low Tire Pressure or tire pressure monitoring on the Aurora is done via the wheel speed sensors. Anytime you fill or add air to the tire you will need to reset the tire pressure monitoring - not just the current indicator, but go to gage->tire pressure and reset.
If any of the wheel speed sensors are having issue, this can effect the reporting to the tire pressure monitoring. If you have an ODB-II scanner that can read ABS codes this is very helpful as it will tell you exactly which sensors are having problems.
