Hyundai Veracruz GLS 2008 Tire Pressure problem

Bought a Veracruz GLS 2008. Since day one, the TPMS (Tire Pressure) warning light turns on when I drive. It will flicker, and then stay lit, turning off during the drive and then sometimes turning back on. I've brought into the dealership for service, and they couldn't detect anything wrong with the tires, and reset the TPMS module. However, the warning light continues to turn on and off. Is this safe to drive?

    I have had the same problem. They just keep telling me that the tire pressure fluxuates (sp?). Something tells me, that's not it....I'll keep taking it back. Another problem I have is that I can not seen to get audio out of the auxillary jacks in the rear entertainment system. Two different dealerships have not found the problem. I think it's in the wiring, but they don't want to acknowledge that...I had it in the shop today and will be taking it back tommorrow. Anyone else having the audio problem?

    I recent purchased a 2007 Sonata and the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) light is on. I took it in and all they did was reset it. However, it came back on within a day or so. It's my understanding that the TPMS light is for the system that monitors the tire pressure and not the tire pressure itself - you would get a different light for incorrect tire pressure if the TPMS is working correctly. This seems to be a big misconception in posts I've seen. I currently have the car in service again to see if they can find the problem, but I don't have much faith that they will. Seems to be a "bug."

    Same problem. Dealer says there is nothing they can do and recommends overinflating the tires!

Until this morning i had this "TPMS (!)" light on and after i got the pressure for all four tires equal, the little "(!)" sign disappeared but the TPMS light still stays on.

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.

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.

My tpms came on and stays on,where do i find the sensor?Thank you for your help


Horst, the TPMS is tire pressure monitor sensor, they are found inside each wheel/tire part of the valve assembly which sends info to computer about tires pressure. When tire pressure low light will illuminate and give warning.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Tpms light on, dic indicated low tp fr, inflated to proper pressure,tpms stays on, dic wont update


TPMS - TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR WARNING LIGHT
NOTE: Tire pressure rises and falls depending on heat caused by vehicle's operation and the outside temperature. If outside temperature is low, the air inside the tire may cool, causing a lower tire inflation pressure. This may cause the low tire pressure warning light to illuminate.

When the tire pressure warning light comes on, immediately check the air pressure of all tires and adjust to the specified pressure. Make sure the warning light goes off. If the warning light stays on or flashes, there is a malfunction in the TPM system. See appropriate manufacturer service information.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I have a orange ! light on in my car. I recently popped my tire and have a spare...is this is problem? 2011 Hyundai Tuscon


Its probably been triggered by the absence of the TPMS(tire pressure monitoring sensor) on the spare u have on. With d specified tire complete with the TPMS the light should be easily erased.

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.

My daugther has a hyundai accent 2008, a light TPMS on, wath does it means?


"TPMS" light when ON indicates that the tyre pressure monetering system is malfunctioning. One or more of the TPMS components may experience failure. Vehicle should be driven to the authorized dealer for service. This warning is different from "underinflation" warning, also found on the dashboard in shape of deflated tire with "!" in the middle. hope this helps

A yellow light in the shape of an upside down horseshoe with an exclamatio point in the middle came on this morning. What does that mean?


You have problem with the tire pressure. The nissan pathfinde have a TIME PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) That means: This systems monitoring the pressure warning light iluminates, check the tire pressure in all four tires. Adjust the low pressure to the recommended cold tire pressure shown on theTire and Loading Information label located in the driver's door opening. After the pressure are adjusted, the vehicle will need to be driven at speed above 16 MPH (25 km/h) to activate the TPMS and turn off the low pressure warning light.

I have TPMS on 2009 Nissan Maxima. Can't find where I can check my tire pressure through the TPMS. Manual says I can but I can't find where to. PLEASE HELP!!!


Check the tire pressure at the valve mounted to the wheel. There is a warning light on the instrument cluster to warn of low tire pressure. On a 2009 Maxima, if your warning light comes on check and adjust, if needed, the tire pressures at all 4 wheels. If the pressures were low the light will go out after a short distance. If the light fails to go out take the Maxima to your local Nissan dealer.

At first, the light to let me know about the air in the tires turned on, and after a couple od days I took it to the car dealer where I bought it..The tires were check and was told that the light will turn...


contact the place where the tire was changed and let them know that they damaged the TPMS sensors. If they have a grain of integrity, they'll make it right.
