TPMS Diagnostic Information – Hyundai Elantra / Elantra GT / Elantra Touring 2007-2020

Hyundai Elantra

After the TREAD Act was mandated in 2007, all vehicles manufactured in the United States beginning in 2008, must be installed with direct or indirect TPMS systems.


The Hyundai Elantra, Elantra GT, and Elantra Touring are manufactured with a direct TPMS system. Direct TPMS has TPMS sensors are installed in the wheel; if one or more tires indicate low tire pressure, the TPMS sensors will transfer the information to the vehicle’s ECU.  An indicator light (low-line TPMS system) or each tire pressure will show on the dash (high-line TPMS system).
