Does anyone know if the the TPMS sensors are in the tires on the Seltos ? I had my winter tires on since Nov. without the sensors if they are in the tires and no warnings of low tire pressure.Today I finally got a warning but all my tires are the proper pressure.

They come with the car and are attached to the wheel. TMPS is notoriously inaccurate in cold weather. Drive for a bit and it should turn off. The car takes a reading to update the system at like 10 miles or something like that.

Here is the strange part.When I had my winter tires installed I didn't have the sensors installed in them.The dealer said my light would come on in a short time.It came on today 2 1/2 months later.Any advice?

That’s really weird... Seltos ships from the factory with TPMS - it’s not an optional extra, at least in the US. It’s worth checking with your dealer to confirm but I’m pretty sure they’re gonna say it’s equipped.

It was your dealer who did your winter changeover? And you’re using the OEM wheels that came with the car, correct?

Sorry but have to clarify that.I am using aftermarket tires on steel rims with no sensors.I did not want to pay for 4 new sensors to put in my winter tires.My OEM rims and tires do have the sensors.

Ah. Well they could have probably transferred the OEM sensors... Discount tire here does it for ~$5/wheel.

There’s probably not a fuse to pull as I’d expect the system to run through the BCM. Might just have to live with it for now and consider swapping your sensors over next year
