If you’re looking for the TPMS reset button on your Kia Sportage, it’s actually located on the steering wheel. To access it, simply press and hold the “SET” button while turning on the ignition. The TPMS light will then flash to indicate that it has been reset.
Kia Sportage TPMS Tyre Pressure Reset
If you’re like most Kia Sportage owners, you probably don’t know where the TPMS reset button is located. Here’s a quick guide to help you find it:
The TPMS reset button is located on the driver’s side door panel, near the bottom of the door.
You’ll need to remove the door panel to access it. Once you’ve removed the door panel, you should see a small black button. This is the TPMS reset button.
Press and hold this button for about 5 seconds to reset your TPMS system.
What is the Tpms Reset Button on a Kia Sportage
If your Kia Sportage is equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), there is a reset button located on the instrument panel. This button is used to calibrate the system and should be pressed whenever you change your tires or add air to them. Here’s how to use the TPMS reset button on your Kia Sportage:
1. Park your Sportage in a safe, level location. 2. Turn the engine off and set the parking brake. 3. Locate the TPMS reset button on the instrument panel, near where the speedometer and odometer are located.
The button may have an icon of a tire next to it. 4. Press and hold the TPMS reset button for about five seconds until you see the TPMS light on the dash illuminate and then go out again. This indicates that the system has been reset successfully.
How Do You Reset the Tpms on a Kia Sportage
If your Kia Sportage is equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), you will need to reset the system when you change your tires or replace a tire pressure sensor. Here’s how to do it:
1. Make sure all four of your tires are inflated to the correct pressure.
The recommended tire pressure can be found on a placard inside the driver’s door, or in your owner’s manual. 2. With all four tires properly inflated, turn the ignition key to the ON position without starting the engine. 3. Press and hold the trip odometer button while simultaneously pressing and holding the brake pedal for more than three seconds.
After about five seconds, you should see the TPMS light start flashing slowly. This indicates that the system is in learning mode and is ready to relearn each wheel’s position. 4. Drive slowly (under 20 mph) in a figure-eight pattern until the TPMS light stops flashing and remains lit steadily.
This means that each wheel’s position has been successfully learned by the TPMS system and it is now reset.
Where is the Tpms Located on a Kia Sportage
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) on your Kia Sportage is designed to warn you when your tire pressure is low. The system uses sensors that are mounted on the wheels to monitoring the air pressure in your tires. When the pressure in one or more tires drops below a certain level, the TPMS will warn you with a visual and/or audible alert.
There are two different types of TPMS systems: direct and indirect. Direct TPMS uses sensors that measure the air pressure in your tires and send this information wirelessly to the car’s computer. Indirect TPMS uses wheel speed sensors to monitor the rotational speed of each wheel and calculate the air pressure based on this information.
Kia vehicles equipped with direct TPMS will have four sensor valves located at each wheel, behind the cap of the valve stem. The location of these valves may vary depending on which type of rims are installed on your vehicle. Kia vehicles equipped with indirect TPMS will not have any sensor valves; instead, there will be an antenna mounted near each wheel (usually behind the hubcap).
If you’re unsure whether your Kia has direct or indirect TPMS, you can consult your owner’s manual or ask a dealer technician for help.
