TPMS light...staying illuminated
« November 06, 2018, 19:25:43 »
Last week my tyre had a puncture (pressure went down to 23), so called RACV to change to the spare.

My TPMS light has continued to stay illuminated.

Anyway of getting rid of it or do I have to go back to Hyundai?

Usually after filling up my tyres, the light disappears once it has been driven for a few minutes, but not this time.

Is the spare still on. That doesn't  have a sensor.  :undecided:

No, dad took the tyre to get fixed (tube replaced) and the spare went back into the boot.

Hopefully they fitted the TPMS sensor properly when they repaired the puncture!  :confused:

Spare doesn't have a sensor, I'm speaking from my experience. But if you say they repaired your tire, might have not installed it properly, because normally after iu drive some kilometers, must not be on.

If the tyre repairer had to fit a tube, they would have removed the TPMS sender unit which is attached to the original valve stem internally, they are basically one unit

Let's hope they didn't discard it!  :sweating:

Resolved.......light is off but the dickheads at the tyre place inflated the tyre to 42!  The rest are 32/33.

But I'll take note of the above for future reference.

What did they do? Return the RC valve to the tyre?
