" Inflation pressure sensors attached to the tire valves send radio signals to fender-well antennae, which are in turn wired to a cockpit monitor. " I wonder if our system is at least half this sophisticated :oops: .

Wow sounds real reliable :lol: . You have to put batteries in them or something? I doubt those little radio transmitters run off air.

I guess I'm not getting the joke, right?

From the FX service manual

TRANSMITTER
A sensor-transmitter integrated with a valve is installed on a wheel,
and transmits a detected air pressure signal in the form of a radio
wave.

LOW TIRE PRESSURE WARNING CONTROL UNIT
Reads the radio wave signal received by the antenna, and controls
the warning lamp and the buzzer operations as shown below. It also
has a judgement function to detect a system malfunction.

ANTENNA
Receives the radio wave signal transmitted by the transmitter.

DISPLAY UNIT
Displays the air pressure of each tire.
 After the ignition switch is turned ON, the pressure values are
not be displayed until the data of each wheel stabilizes.

Not getting the joke, either, unless it's that we have a similar system. One advantage I see in their system is the fender well antennas (I assume there are four). We only have one. With one at each wheel, even if the tires are rotated (full break down and side-to-side rotation on that car), the display can accurately show POSITIONS as well as pressures.
