  1. How do I reset the TPMS Warning Light on a 06 Sonata?

    It depends. If it's the picture of the tire that's on, you need to check the
    air pressure. If it's the TPMS letters, drive it for a while and see if the
    light goes off. If it doesn't, you've got a bad pressure transmitter (in the
    tire), a bad coil (near each of the tires), a bad TPMS module, or RF
    interference - which, unless the source is in your car,, won't be present if
    you drive for a while. Basically, if the TPMS letters are lit, and they
    don't go away after driving for a while, it's a dealer issue.

  4. If you catch the sun shining on the dash at the right angle, you will see
    all the spots for options and yes, there is one for a tire pressure monitor.
    I have an 07 Limited and it does not have one installed either. I wonder if
    hte OP is in the US? I know other countries have some other options
    available to them. In Australia, a backup warning system is in the bumper.

    I think this is now standard on the 2008's, but this was not available
    on the 06 & 07's.

    Federal law requires it on all vehicles build after ~August 2007. They
    probably put the tooling in place, and made space for the lights in the
    original 06, but didn't start putting in the hardware until they had to. The
    additional equipment is composed of a transceiver / computer box that feed
    the lamps on the instrument panel, a transducer in each tire, and possibly a
    coil (antenna) in each wheel well. There's not alot of info on
    hmaservice.com, but it would appear that this http://www.entire-solution.com
    is what they are using.
