Do you need to reset the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) on your Kia Forte? Here’s how to do it.
The light indicator is a notification to warn you of significantly low air pressure or high-pressure loss in your tires and is not to be ignored, as low pressure affects the vehicles overall performance such as:
- How the vehicle drives.
- Increase need for fuel.
- Tire failure.
To check the appropriate air levels needed, seek the label located on the inside of the driver’s door which will look identical to the above image. In the event, the light stays on after the required air pressure is reached, in some cases, this can be remedied by applying the following step:
- After inflating tires, drive over 15mph for 3-5 miles
This should reset your indicator light. However, keep in mind, after tires are inflated, the outdoor temperature affects how fast the air in the tires will adjust to the proper temperature. In addition, if the tire pressure warning light stays illuminated, you will need to have your vehicle serviced as there could possibly be a sensor issue.
NOTE: If you are unable to Reset the Tire Pressure Light on the first try, repeat the steps. If you are still unsuccessful, contact the dealership for assistance or consult your vehicle user’s manual.
