Kia Picanto JA 2017-2023 Owner's Manual / What to do in an emergency / Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) / Indication of Low Tire Pressure

The () warning light will illuminate when an under-inflated tire is indicated. In certain types, the above message might be displayed on the cluster.

If the warning light illuminates, reduce your speed, avoid hard cornering and rapid braking. Have your vehicle inspected by a professional workshop. Kia recommends to visit an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.

Check the pressure of all tires and inflate to the proper pressure according to procedures, and if required, replace or repair the tires.

If you cannot reach a close service station, stop the vehicle at a safe place, check all tires and operate the TPMS setting procedure. If you are unable to adjust the tire pressure, use the repair tools to repair or change to spare tire and contact a professional workshop. Kia recommends to call an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.

You may not be able to identify low tire pressure visually. Use precise tools to measure and adjust tire pressure. Please note that a tire that is hot due to prolonged driving, therefore will have high pressure. We recommend you to measure and adjust the tire pressure after the vehicle has driven for less than 1.6 km (1 mile) within 3 hours.
