Are there problems with the TPMS system?

Absolutely, multiple review/complaint websites highlight complaints from drivers illustrating issues with the TPMS on the 2022 Hyundai Elantra models. More specifically, the technology appears to fail once the tires are changed.

What Problems are Owners Experiencing?

Here are two reports of problems shown on the NHTSA website:

An owner from Michigan filed a complaint on the NHTSA website stating:

“Hired a local tire shop to install winter tires on a second set of wheels, with a second set of TPMS sensors. Later, I discovered the car was not picking up the sensors, but it also failed to illuminate the TPMS sensor alert. When I took it back to the tire shop, they checked the TPMS with their own sensors and said they were working fine, so they didn’t know why the car didn’t detect them.

I called my Hyundai dealer, and they said that aftermarket TPMS often don’t work, and I have to use Hyundai-approved TPMS. This is fine, but the owner’s manual ought to say so. I checked the owner’s manual, and it doesn’t say that only Hyundai-approved TPMS can be used. The dealer replied that Hyundai doesn’t like people installing aftermarket parts. I replied that installing winter tires is not usually considered an aftermarket modification, and a person shouldn’t be inhibited from installing winter tires.

So all I ask is that the owner’s manual should make this clear. In the section on TPMS, it should say that only Hyundai-approved TPMS sensors should be used, or else it should say that if the driver installs a second set of wheels with winter tires, that this installation should be done by a Hyundai dealer and not by another tire shop. Of course, the owner could install the winter tires on the factory wheels with the factory TPMS.

But this would mean that every season, the all-season and winter tires would be swapped and re-mounted and re-balanced, which is unnecessary. It is standard practice to buy a second set of wheels and TPMS sensors to make seasonal tire changeover easier. Since installing winter tires on a second set of wheels is a routine practice, and not usually considered an aftermarket modification, therefore, if this car has special TPMS requirements, they should be indicated in the manual.”

Another owner from Mississippi claims:

“When changing out the wheels and TPMS sensors even with the right frequency the Elantra N will not pick up the new TPMS sensors. They told me at one dealership it had to be the factory sensors. Then quoted me $700 for new sensors.”
