thats your TMPS light (tire pressure monitering system) if it is on solid it means your pressures are low (more than 4 psi low or 6 psi high) usually. if that light is blinking then one or more of your sensors are not being read by the on board computer. check all your pressures and if it doesn't go off immediatly, or after a short drive, then go to a dunn tire/pepboys/dealer and ask them to reset it for you with their computer.

I have a Hyundai Elantra 2012 and I'm having a problem with the tire pressure light. It blinks intermittently. It will randomly start blinking when I'm driving or when I start it but isn't consistent. It blinks for a minute then stays solid. I have taken it to the dealer three times and they reset it for me, so they don't know what's wrong at this point. Any suggestions?

I have a 2012 Elantra. Seems when I use either the data port or 12v outlet to charge a phone it triggers the warning light. Blinks for 60 seconds and then turns solid. Will stay on until car is turned off/on and driven for 5 minutes with nothing charging. Always freaks me out, I stop and check, nothing wrong. Can be unsettling as I have a tire blow out after 3 months and after 3 weeks in my santa fe sport. The Elantra has no spare (f-ing brilliant)

Try reading your owners manual! It will tell you all you need to know about dash lights.

No it is not in the owners manual. It tells you the roads are icy so drive more careful and slower. The smybol is a snowflake.

I have a 2013 Hyundai Elantra...My engine like is one...i had the code P2026 that came out from VIP...can someone tell me what is the meaning of that code? Tk you!!!

If the TPMS light is flashing it could mean that one of your tire sensors has gone bad. You can usually find fairly cheap replacements on sites like http://www.titantpms.com/tpms

It goes on at 4 degrees and is telling you it's cold enough to think about putting your winter tires on.
