Hyundai TPMS Electromagnetic Interference

Hyundai TPMS Electromagnetic Interference

The TPMS malfunction indicator lamp may be illuminated and the RF channel failure code may be stored if the vehicle is operating around electric power supply cables or radio transmitters.

Model: 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe

Symptom/Condition: The TPMS malfunction indicator lamp may be illuminated and the trouble codes C1312-C1315 (TPMS sensor RF, Radio Frequency, channel failure) may be stored if the vehicle is operating around electric power supply cables or radio transmitters at police stations, broadcasting stations, military installations, airports, transmitting towers and the like. External electronic devices connected to the vehicle’s power outlets (notebook computer, seat warmer, massager, coolers, GPS navigation, mobile phone charger, etc.) may also cause this condition.

Countermeasure/Action: The TPMS malfunction indicator light generally turns off after the vehicle is removed from such interference.

Note: In the case of the TRW TPMS, the TPMS indicator lamp turns off after the vehicle is removed from the interference and the ignition switch is turned off and on.

C1312-C1315 (TPMS initiator RF channel failure) set condition

• If the TPMS sensor learning fails or no RF signal is transmitted from the learned TPMS sensor while driving the vehicle for 25 minutes over 12 mph, the trouble codes C1312, C1313, C1314 or C1315 will be set. In addition, as mentioned above, the trouble codes may be set by electromagnetic interference with the TPMS.

• Check communication between the TPMS sensors and a scan tool. If a TPMS sensor does not transmit any data to the scan tool, replace the TPMS sensor.

• If all four TPMS sensors are checked and working correctly, trace the cause of electromagnetic interference. Drive the vehicle out of the strong electric field or remove the external electronic devices that may cause the condition. Drive the vehicle for about five minutes to verify that the condition is corrected.

The Winter Tire Opportunity – Now Is The Time

Winters tires aren’t just a luxury, it’s your job to tell your customers the positive impact that the tires can give them.

It was a frigid February morning in Chicago last year. The kind of cold that creeps into the depths of your lungs, making it difficult and even a little painful to breathe. The kind of cold that literally takes your breath away. The snow was falling as I stepped into my car and took off across The Chicago Skyway with the city lights in my rear view. It was around Gary, Indiana, that the lake effect snow engulfed Interstate 90 and made it impossible to see the road more than about 15 feet ahead as I made an unwise attempt to pass a massive snowplow in the right lane. And, it was this moment that I understood the difference between an all-season tire and a true winter tire. My life as a “tire guy” would never be the same again.
