Even thou I continue to get a TPMS system failure during work week nights only, at very specific locations, I can now see that the TPMS *actually* works very well. The car sat for 2 weeks in the garage. After starting it up, I got a TPMS warning. Well crap, now I'm getting the problem by just having the car sit for a couple of weeks. Figuring it was just another nuisance dropout, I minimized it while thinking *did I actually see different information displayed in the DIC. So after backing out of the garage I cycled the Trip button to the tire pressure display. I expected to find the usual ---- at all 4 positions. But NO, it showed the right rear tire was down to 25 psi. Had to leave for baby sitting duty, so off we went. The car seemed fine (so it must not really be a problem). The I was overridden by my wife to check that out, so back to the house we go. The tire looked like it could be a *little* low. Using my direct reading gauge, I find 25 psi in there. Brought the psi back up to 37 and the TPMS fault condition cleared. So the TPMS system in this car, does monitor an send out good info to the cluster. The bad, is that I have sense found a metal object stuck in that tire. It appears to loose about a half a pound each day. Soon I'll take the tire/wheel to Americas tire an have them fix same.
