Hyundai Santa Fe: If you have a flat tire (with Tire Mobility Kit) / Checking the tire inflation pressure

Hyundai Santa Fe (TM) 2019-2024 Owner's Manual / Emergency situations / If you have a flat tire (with Tire Mobility Kit) / Checking the tire inflation pressure

1. After driving approximately 4~6 miles (7~10 km or about 10 minutes), stop at a safe location.

2. Connect the connection hose (3) of the compressor and tire into the tire valve.

3. Connect cables (4) to the battery.

4. Adjust the tire inflation pressure to the recommended tire inflation.

With the engine running, proceed as follows.

-- To increase the inflation pressure:

Switch on the compressor. To check the current inflation pressure setting, briefly switch off the compressor.

-- To reduce the inflation pressure:

Adjust the valve (9) for reducing tire inflation pressure.


Do not let the compressor run for more than 10 minutes, otherwise the device will overheat and may be damaged.


The pressure gauge may show higher than actual reading when the compressor is running. To get an accurate tire pressure, the compressor needs to be turned off.


If the inflation pressure is not maintained, drive the vehicle a second time, refer to Distributing the sealant. Then repeat steps 1 to 4.

Use of the TMK may be ineffectual for tire damage larger than approximately 4 mm (0.16 in).

We recommend that you contact an authorized HYUNDAI dealer if the tire cannot be made roadworthy with the Tire Mobility Kit.


The tire inflation pressure must be inflated to the proper pressure (Refer to “Tire and Wheels” section in chapter 2). If it is not, do not continue driving. Call for road side service or towing.


Tire pressure sensor

The sealant on the tire pressure sensor and wheel should be removed when you replace the tire with a new one and inspect the tire pressure sensors. We recommend that you get this done at an authorized dealer.


When reinstalling the repaired or replaced tire and wheel on the vehicle, tighten the wheel bolt to 79~94 lbf.ft (11~13 kgf.m).
