G70 doesn't recognize aftermarket TPMS sensors

When I ordered my winter wheel/tire package, I got a set of aftermarket multi-frequency (315/433 Mhz) TPMS sensors installed too, but I've put 70 or 80 miles on the car since the winter wheels were put on yesterday, and the dash widget still says "drive to display" (or whatever it says before the TPMS registers).

Anybody know how to get the car to recognize the new sensors? I've searched the manual and this forum and google and have not found an answer.

Thanks!

The computer should recognize the sensors automatically after a relatively short period of driving. by “short,” I mean a mile or two at the most. To my knowledge, there is no method for manually forcing a synchronization of the sensors.

I would suspect there’s either something wrong with the sensors or perhaps they’re not the correct part number. Maybe check with whomever sold them to you.

Yeah, that's what I thought, too. Thanks!

According to our shop manual, new TPMS sensors need to be "registered" using Hyundai's scan tool. So looks like you'll have to take it to the dealer, or find someone with a scanner that compatible.

I could be wrong but I think I read somewhere in this forum about other members that have installed new (not aftermarket but OEM) TPMS in their G70 without having to take their cars to the dealer to register them. The bib question here with the OP is that his TPMS are not OEM but aftermarket multi-frequency (315/433 Mhz) TPMS. Will they fit or will they need to be registered?

Did you order from Tire Rack? Mine paired within 2 miles automatically, but I had to order them using the Stinger GT configuration as opposed to the G70.
No, I got them from CarID.com when I ordered the wheel/tire package; they were the ones offered with the package (which was explicitly for my G70 with Brembo brakes), so I assumed they were the right ones. I'll probably run it over to the dealer, as @GarnetTy1473 suggested.

To avoid any problems, it is best to use OEM parts with these vehicles whether it be tpms sensors, O2 sensors etc. Same thing with key fobs, go buy one off Amazon and there is a 90% chance it won't program to the vehicle.
Best thing to do is visit a dealer. Tell them you want to try and have the sensors programmed, but go in with an understanding the aftermarket sensors may or may not work.

Then there is no dout, the TPMS from the Stinger GT sold at Tire Rack work on our G70 w/o having to program anything.
My assumption (and it's a pure assumption) is that they work right away because they're a 433MHz TPMS sensor in specific. I assume universal ones can be set to multiple frequencies (as GiGi pointed out in the first post) which require the correct frequency setting. Hopefully after the proper frequency is set, they automatically connect every season like the Tire Rack ones do.

That's my guess too.

Does this mean a generic 433 MHz generic sensor should work? How else can the car differentiate between oem 433 va aftermarket 433. This is my current debate right now.

I can’t find anything that will arrive by Monday.

I got my new wheels and tires from Getyourwheels.com and they guaranteed the sensors would work. They're 433mhz and preprogrammed. However, they dont work. I'm working with the seller to see what they're going to do.

This sucks because I now have to pull all four wheels and then risk scratching the new wheels by re-mounting the tires. Ugh!!

I ordered from Carid also and designated to use the stinger TPMS. They have great customer service by the way - give them a call if dealer isnt close to you before make a ride out there

I ran it over to the dealer, and they couldn't figure out how to make the sensors talk to the car, so I reached out to Luis @ CarID, and he told me that the sensors were probably in "hibernation" mode and that I should deflate all the tires and reinflate them and that would wake them up.

I tried that, but it didn't work; I got a low pressure warning for about 20 minutes, then it went back to "Drive to display" (after throwing a "Check tire pressure monitoring system" warning for a couple of days). Waiting to hear back on a refund... 😟

Getyourwheels.com mailed me a programmer, I checked and all but one were transmitting. I reprogrammed that one as a Hyundai Palisade because the programmer didnt have a G70 listed in the programming section. After that, they all registered using the tool's G70 sensor check function. I had to drop the pressure down below 15 psi to program that sensor though.

After that, I drove for 15 minutes and the system worked flawlessly! Just need to send the programmer back them which was prepaid too. Great customer service.

Went thru that exact same issue last year. The aftermkt sensor wont work even tho they are the same frequency etc. Ended up buying OEM from a ebay seller (Korea based) for like $150 CAD including shipping and tax and once installed, work like a charm. Its also $100 cheaper than the aftermarket that the tire shop provided and ended up giving me a refund on the aftermkt sensor.
It appears the Hyundai/Genesis TPMS system is very picky and has to be exact match for it to "talk" to each other.
