Thanks Jim. Now that I know what to look for, it appears that lots of Chrysler and GM products (and probably Fords and everything else, but those are just what I noticed first) have separately displayed values... and cool graphics to go with them. Ram dual-rear-wheel trucks even show the inner and outer tires on each side separately, which makes sense.

Not all of them do this, of course - I've never owned a vehicle with tire pressure sensors, let alone individual displays.

Had a tire with about 16 lbs. in it that didn't light up the dash.
Glenn, did you try getting them all to the correct pressure and doing the reset button? Or that doesn't work anymore?

Every time I took the FJ in to switch to tires, the system would start lighting up after about 10 miles or so of driving. After multiple times taking it back and what not, I was told the tire guy has to reset the system. Least I think that's what it was. All I know is that when I take it in now I tell 'em what happened before and they know what I mean and it doesn't do it any longer so they do whatever they need doing. You might want to tell your tire folks that the next time you switch 'em over.

Toyota has done the tire changes and I wasn't aware of any reset. I presume they would be doing whatever is necessary. I still haven't worked my way through the manual for the sound system ( after seven years ).
I'm running these snows until they are done, and then I'm looking at all-weather Nokian tires.

Its worth a try doing the reset- I have to look it up in the manual every time I do it! Just like I have to with reseting the Maint Required one after an oil change.

My snows are mounted on plain steel rims without the sensors, so my warming light is on all winter.

Mine used to be that way until WA state required the monitors on all tires that go on a vehicle that's equipped with the sensor system. That was a few years ago.

Interesting. It appears that WAC 204-10-021 Washington adopted federal standards (including FMVSS Standard 138) making them apply to vehicles operated in that state that would otherwise apply only to new vehicles as they are sold. That implies that when you change wheels on a vehicle that would have requred TPMS when new, you need to maintain a functional TPMS system.

Hi: All... The TPMS on our tug sends me into the tire shop at least once a year. Usually sets off the first cold snap in the fall and not as often when warming up in the spring. Both our vehicles have one and they're a royal PITA in MHO. A good look and tire gauge is still the best!!! Alf

Alf in the fall could it just be falling tire pressures with the temps getting lower? That has happened to me before, when I've been negligent about getting out the gauge with season changes.

Side note: Whenever I get either my Tacoma or Corolla back from having the Toyota dealer do any service, my tires are always overinflated to 35 psi. Finally talked to the service manager and he said they started doing that since they were getting so many calls on the lights coming on for low pressure. So they pump the tires to the recommended 30, reset the system pressures to that, then pump them up to 35 psi. Lights don't detect overinflation and too many people now never bother with checking their tires with an actual gauge. Now I know to check mine every time I get it back home.
