Tire Pressure Monitoring System , one or more of your tires is low on pressure. This information and more is in your owner's manual. Check it out sometimes.

My 2010 Sonata has BOTH a "TPMS" warning in text which lights if the communication with the wheel pressure sensor and the car is lost and a second separate graphics warning symbol of a cross-section of a tire with an exclamation sign in it when a tire has low or pressure. So on mine, if the TPMS in text is lit, it is not necessarily low on pressure and may be OK to drive, just make sure to check the tires a lot and pay attention to the car handling and get it into a mechanic have it fixed.

OK - my 2007 Hyundai Sonata TPMS light goes on and off every time I change altitude - or so I thought. Paid $84. in Conway, AK to recalibrate in Jan; just TODAY paid $106 for the same thing! Has been on and off all year (while I was traveling). Explanation: "frequency related issues that effect the sensors" - nothing they can do!!! Nonsense? $200 in one year to correct an issue that - supposedly - can not be fixed! If I turn it off and there is a problem, it will be my fault - yes? Anyone else have this issue?
