Better than my BMW which tells you that you have a low tire but no details as to which one.
Agreed... it's not a system I would add, but I also don't mind having it.

I actually spent 3 months driving around on wheels that didn't have the sensors but I kept the wheels that did have the sensors next to where I parked. This kept the light off most of the time as my commute is only a few miles round trip.

Goodness, why would you want to? Every car I've owned that has a pressure monitoring system has pretty much only been useful to let me know that the system itself has gone wrong.

But, if you really wanted to add it, there are lots of aftermarket kits.

I believe your correct. I took it to the dealership and they did it and instructed me on it for free and he started with left front and went clock wise. Thank you. Thats a handy piece of info. Tip o the hat, mate!

JohnWR I actually thought it was directed by turn signals flashing.

JohnWR Excellent. Glad you figured it out.

Moosebreath All done and fixed the TPMS readout. I'm sure a lot of you know how to reset the tire sensors after rotation but for those that don't, let me impress you with my new knowledge. Insert key into ignition. Light up the dashboard and access the TPMS readout on the DIS. It doesn't matter whether it displays front or rear tire pressure as long as you are there. Take your fob press lock and unlock at the same time and hold until the horn chirps twice. Pick a tire and let a few pounds out. I held mine open maybe 3 or 4 seconds then wait about 5 to 10 seconds. The horn will chirp once. That wheel is done. Repeat that 3 more times and good to go. Your welcome!

Who rotated your tires? There is a procedure that you can follow to reteach them yourself, but if someone else did the rotation I would go back and make them do it.

Or you can leave them as they are. It doesn't actually hurt anything beyond not knowing which is low. Since I still check them manually with a tire gauge it wouldn't bother me.
On my way home from work today it dawned on my sorry ass what happened. You are correct, Grasshopper. I had the front moved to the rear and vice versa. It is my mechanic who did it and is on vaca for another week. What is the procedure to do it yourself? If its not too technical I might give it a whirl.
