There are two basic types of systems, direct and indirect. You have an indirect system. Direct systems use a pressure sensor and transmitter for each wheel. They send pressure information from each wheel to a computer module on the car. Some of these systems provide real time pressure and temperature readings to the driver. Here is an example of one of the ...

The light could come on if there is too much air in a tire just through expansion because it is getting warmer out. I'm not sure if this is viewable through a code reader on the Hyundai, but ...

Happened the first time ...
