I think Bobzilla has it right. Weather turned cold; TPMS light went on; checked pressures; all okay; light stayed on; checked pressures again and made sure all tires were the same; drove it again and the light went out after a few miles. I never heard of the drive for two cycles before the light resets, but that is exactly what happened to me. Good information...thanks.

Hey folks...

I'm having the same problem. Got in the car last night where the temp was close to freezing. TPM light on. Haven't measured the air, but all 4 tires look fine. Drove home on interstate (about 30 miles) and light stayed on the whole way. Parked in the garage and got into go to work this afternoon and light still on. This is the second time this has happened to me. The last time I took it to a tire shop and they checked the air, but said pressure was fine. Do I need to take it to the dealer? It is a 2011 Elantra with roughly 6,000 miles.

You can't tell by looking anymore. It used to work in the old days with bias ply tires, but not with today's radials. Some of them can get down to 10psi before they look low to the human eye. I'm guessing they were already a little bit low and the low temps pushed them over the edge.

Hi!
Sorry for bumping this OLD OLD topic, but I have the exact same problem on my 2013 Elantra.

I fixed it, tho. Believe it or not, it was an unsilenced USB Charger. If you have one, try disconnecting it for a few days to see if the problem is gone.

If it fixed your problem, go to Amazon and buy a name brand USB charger. Return if TPMS still lights up.
