So this is my first new car in a while and a nice technology jump over my prior 2010 model. I suspect jamming my front passenger tire against a curb when backing out led to the air draining a bit. My PSI was around 16 or so and thus we filled up the air on that tire after seeing the warning. Even after fill up, this remained on the driver side screen. Any idea how to make it go away? I only drove locally afterwards so no high speeds. Would driving down the Beltway for 20 minutes help to lead to a reset on this? Appreciate any information or experiences!

I would also think 34 psi is too low all round.
Look inside the door (i imagine American versions will also have) for the sticker that gives recommended tyre pressure information.
It is more like 40+ psi on the EV6, and measure this when the tyres are cold.

When you do change tyre pressures it only takes about 1 minute of driving for the sensors to tell the ECU and re-set itself.

If KIA TPMS Valves are conventional, and I've no reason to believe they are not, then you'll probably have to drive for a half a mile or so at speeds above 30 to 40 mph to reset them. I had this trouble a couple of times with my I-Pace. Always cured by a quick blast down the A9!
