Hyundai Accent: Reset TPMS

The TPMS indicator light warns you when your tire pressure is too high or too low. Ignoring the TPMS warning and driving with under-inflated tires causes them to generate excess heat leading to increased wear and tear.

Instead of ignoring the TPMS warning, adjust tire pressure, then use the step-by-step guide below to reset TPMS on your Hyundai Accent.
