This may apply to all vehicles equipped with TPMS, but Hyundai reminds us that electromagnetic interference (EMI) can mess with the tire pressure monitoring system.

Likely the leading cause of system failures lies with the condition of the sensor batteries. Sensor batteries are expected to last around six to 10 years, with newer sensors lasting longer due to battery improvements.
