PLEASE HELP!!

I dunno if its the check engine light or not. But i have a Kia Forte 2010 Ex Sedan, and this light just came up a few days ago.. I really dont know what it is. But its a yellow light and it looks like a headphone with something in between yet.. any ideas? if not, i will try to post a picture later.

I checked the pdf manual online(http://kia.ca/content/Owners/OwnersManual/MY10_Forte_EN.pdf) The indicator light im describing was not in the;
INDICATOR SYMBOLS ON THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER section.

Am I crazy or does it just say "TPMS" on the SX Koup?

Generally, the TPMS light only comes on when there is something wrong with the system itself. The low tire pressure light will ignite when pressures are low. When my pressure level drops I get the indicator shown above. I had a glitch in my TPMS system and that lit up for that.

I cannot imagine why one trim level would be different than another though.

SJE is right, if the TPMS light comes on, you have a problem with the TPMS. If the "!" comes on, that means you have a tire low...

Ok, off to the dealer then. I've seen my TPMS light come on the last few nights on the drive home, but it's not on all the time.

Sometimes it'll light up for a few seconds then go off if the sensors lose communication with the main unit. When mine came on i was told they pulled it and cleaned it and the problem was solved. Whether it was necessary or not to clean it I don't know but I have had the TPMS light come on and go off again within 10 seconds.
