I believe that is warning you that frost may be forming and to look out for icy roads.

On my cars this warning seems to come on around 36 degrees Fahrenheit.

Found it in the manual under “Features of your Vehicle -> Instrument Cluster” In the 2016 Accent manual it’s on page 4- 43. “Icy road warning light (if equipped) This warning light is to warn the driver the road may be icy when: • Ignition ON • Temperature range: approximately below 39. 2°F (4°C). The warning light will blink for 10 seconds and then illuminate. Also the warning chime will sound”

Mine comes on at 39* and there is no way I have to watch for icy roads at 39*. I was searching and found this forum because I was hoping I could change the setting.

What does the snow flake by the temperature mean on a 2017 hyuandia accent


The stupidest and most annoying alarm in the car. Especially while driving in heavy traffic on the highway with cars all around

Hey guys do you know if I can deactivate this alarm, since in my area we don’t get icy roads but it activates when it rains or I go through a puddle and shut off the AC and switches it to heat and it’s really dangerous since my windows get all foggy
