Hyundai i-30: Tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) (Type A) / Tyre pressure monitoring system

Hyundai i30 (PD) 2018-2024 Owner's Manual / What to do in an emergency / Tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) (Type A) / Tyre pressure monitoring system


Over-inflation or under-inflation can reduce tyre life, adversely affect vehicle handling, and lead to sudden tyre failure that may cause loss of vehicle control resulting in an accident.

Each tyre, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tyre inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tyres of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tyre inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper tyre inflation pressure for those tyres.)

As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tyre pressure telltale when one or more of your tyres is significantly underinflated. Accordingly, when the low tyre pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tyres as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tyre causes the tyre to overheat and can lead to tyre failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tyre tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.

Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tyre maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tyre pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tyre pressure telltale.

Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the low tyre pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists. When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tyre pressure as intended.

TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tyres or wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tyres or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the replacement or alternate tyres and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to function properly.


If any of the below happens, we recommend that the system be checked by a HYUNDAI authorised repairer.

1. The low tyre pressure telltale/ TPMS malfunction indicator does not illuminate for 3 seconds when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position or the engine is running.

2. The TPMS malfunction indicator remains illuminated after blinking for approximately 1 minute.

3. The Low tyre pressure position telltale remains illuminated.

    Check tyre pressure

    You can check the tyre pressure in the Assist mode on the cluster. Refer to the "LCD Display Modes" in chapter 3. Tyre pressure is displayed after a few minutes of driving after initial engine start up...
