When rotating Subaru Forester tires, TPMS still functions, tire positions will not be displayed correctly  

The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) on the 2008-13 Subaru Forester checks the tire pressures of all four road wheels when the vehicle is driven at speeds above 25 mph and warns in the event of a loss of pressure by means of a low tire pressure warning light. A sensor installed in each wheel will indicate when tire pressure is severely low. The TPMS will activate only when the vehicle is driven.

TPMS setups on Dodge Chargers  

The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) on the 2009-13 Dodge Charger monitors air pressure in the four road tires; pressure in the spare tire is not monitored. There are two tire pressure monitoring systems available, a base system and a premium system. The base system does not specify how many tires are low or where they are located. The premium system does so.

Altima warning control unit can detect a system malfunction  

During driving at speeds above 25 mph on 2007-13 Nissan Altimas, the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) receives the signal transmitted from the transmitter installed in each wheel, and gives alarms when the tire pressure becomes low. NOTE: When a spare tire is mounted, or a wheel, tire pressure sensor or BCM is replaced, the tire pressure sensor must be registered. See reset procedures.

TPMS: Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander Sport  

The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) on the 2008-2013 Mitsubishi Outlander and 2011-2013 Outlander Sport uses tire inflation pressure sensors on the wheels to monitor pressures. The system only indicates when a tire is significantly under-inflated. Under the following conditions, the system may not function properly:

‘Train’ replaced sensors on F-150 pickups  

The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) on 2009-13 Ford F-150 pickups monitors the air pressure in the four road tires with wheel-mounted tire pressure sensors. The sensors transmit radio frequency signals to the Smart Junction Box (SJB) approximately every 60 seconds when the vehicle speed exceeds 20 mph (32 km/h). If the vehicle is stationary for more than 30 minutes, the sensor will enter into a “sleep mode” and stop transmitting.

Keyless entry, scan tool or DIC?  

The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) on 2008-10 models of the Chevrolet Malibu alerts the driver of a large tire pressure change in any of the four tires while the vehicle is being driven. The system will also display individual tire pressures and their locations on the Driver Information Center (DIC).

Mountaineer TPMS is not affected by wheel and tire rotation  

The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) on the 2008-10 Mercury Mountaineer monitors the air pressure in the four road tires with wheel-mounted tire pressure sensors (TPS). The sensors transmit radio frequency signals to the Smart Junction Box (SJB) approximately every 60 seconds when the vehicle speed exceeds 20 mph, and every six hours when the vehicle is stationary.

Register Mazda sensors when changing tires or wheels  

The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) on the 2007-12 Mazda CX-7 and CX-9 monitors the pressure for each tire. If tire pressure is too low or too high in one or more tires, the TPMS will turn on a warning light on the instrument panel and sound a warning beep for about three seconds.
