Faced with a ve-hour late-evening drive, I guess I shouldn’t have been too sur­prised when the Ioniq’s tyre pressure warn­ing light de­cided this would be a per­fect op­por­tu­nity to test my pa­tience. How­ever, with no sign of a at tyre, and a big ‘out of or­der’ sign taped to the air ma­chine at my lo­cal garage, I de­cided to at­tempt to re­set the sys­tem.

Ex­cept it turns out you can’t; the tyre pressure mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem in the Ioniq is de­signed to au­to­mat­i­cally recog­nise when the pres­sures are cor­rect again and re­set it­self. I pushed on to the next garage, topped up the tyre that was sup­pos­edly low on air and, sure enough, a quar­ter of a mile down the road, the light went out. Clever. MA
