The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) of the 2011-2017 Hyundai Elantra, 2014 Elantra Coupe and 2009-2012 Elantra Touring monitors the air pressure in the four road tires with wheel-mounted tire pressure sensors.

This vehicle uses the 433 MHz tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) sensor. Although 315 MHz and 433 MHz sensors are identical in size and shape, they are not interchangeable. Always make sure the correct sensor is being used. An RKE-TPMS analyzer can be used to determine the sensors frequency without having to demount the tire.
