    I tried this instructions with my 2016 Sonic RS and it didn’t worked at all! I deflated the tire almost half of the air and no honk at all. I read somewhere else that 2016+ need the relearn tool. Can someone confirm that the tool EL-50448 will work with 2016-2017? I took my car to the dealer (3hr+ one way drive) and they the replaced wheel and tire (also new sensor) and “they FORGOT” to relearn it. Now, I’m driving with the low pressure light on all the time!!!
