Hyundai Service Reminder Reset
Hyundai’s mileage-based minder system is designed to alert you when service is due. Keeping up with your maintenance will save you thousands of dollars in repair bills throughout the lifespan of your vehicle.
However, if you see any warning lights illuminated on your dashboard it’s crucial to act fast. Some issues are minor, such as a loose gas cap, while others can be serious and require immediate attention.
How to reset the service reminder on your Hyundai
The Hyundai Accent features a service reminder to let drivers know when they’re due for routine maintenance. The system uses the car computer to calculate how many miles are accumulated in a certain time period, then sets an estimated timeline for when routine maintenance should be performed. This includes services like oil and filter changes. Keeping up with these regular maintenance services can help prolong the lifespan of your vehicle and prevent costly repairs in the future.
To reset the service reminder on your Hyundai, turn the ignition to the ON position but don’t start the engine. Then, press the Mode button (which has a square-like symbol and is located on the steering wheel) several times to navigate to the User Settings menu. From there, use the arrow key to scroll to Service Interval and then use the navigation switch to adjust the mileage or time until the service warning light activates.
Remember, though, that the mileage-based minder system is only a guideline and may vary depending on driving conditions. You should always consult the manufacturer’s recommendation in your owner’s manual for more information.
How to reset the check engine light on your Hyundai
When the check engine light on your Hyundai comes on, it’s a warning that something is wrong. It may be a simple problem like a loose gas cap, or it could be more serious, such as a defective oxygen sensor or a damaged catalytic converter. In either case, it’s important to get the issue fixed as soon as possible to prevent damage and save money in the long run.
The Check Engine light is illuminated by the vehicle’s onboard diagnostic system (OBD). This system keeps track of how well the engine and emissions control systems are functioning and will turn on the Check Engine light if it detects an error.
There are a few ways to reset the check engine light on your Hyundai, but it’s important to understand that doing so won’t fix the underlying problem. The light will only stay off for a certain number of driving cycles, and you will need to repeat the process if it turns back on.
How to reset the TPMS light on your Hyundai
If your Hyundai tire pressure monitoring system warning light has come on, it’s a sign that one or more of your tires is low. Adding air to your tires should fix the problem and turn off the light. However, if the light keeps coming back on after you’ve filled your tires, it’s possible that the sensors need to be reset.
This can be done in a few different ways, depending on your vehicle. First, check the TPMS sensor’s air pressure to make sure it is at the proper level (33 PSI). Then inflate your tires to the required pressure and let the system take a new reading.
It’s important to keep up with regular maintenance on your Hyundai so that it can last for as long as possible. By following the maintenance schedule in your owner’s manual, you can save yourself thousands of dollars in repair costs over the life of the car. Keeping up with your maintenance also ensures that your Hyundai will run well and perform at its best.
How to reset the battery warning light on your Hyundai
The battery warning light indicates that your vehicle’s alternator is not functioning properly and the car’s electrical systems are relying solely on battery power. This can cause your battery to drain quickly and may damage other components in the car. Schedule an appointment with a mechanic as soon as possible to diagnose the problem and prevent further damage.
Hyundai’s mileage-based maintenance/service reminder system monitors how far you drive to estimate the time when you should come in for routine services. However, if you ignore the service warning light and drive beyond the estimated timeline, you run the risk of damaging your engine. That’s why it’s important to reset the system after each visit to our service center.
