Yesterday I checked my tire pressure and they were all over between 29 and 35. Front should be 36 and rear 33, I run at 2PSI over that for a bit better MPG. I was getting just under 50mpg before this cold weather rolled into Florida, now it's tanked to just above 40mpg. Must be bad gas or winter blend gas.
That got me thinking what should trigger the TPMS?
Is there any display that shows the current tire pressure?
On my Jeep I can see the pressure for all the tires, great for doing a quick check.

Unfortunately there isn't a way to remotely check tire pressure on the iA. We actually don't have Tire Pressure Monitors (TPMS) in our tires, but rather the ABS system determines when the diameter of the tire is outside of a specific range. Given that, I have had my tire pressure light go off because (I think) because it was too HIGH! From what I see, whatever the diameter is (pressure)when you push the reset button is what your set tire diameter will be.

Given that, not having TPMS is a blessing when buying wheels and tires. On other cars I've owned, I've had to factor in the price of new TPMS sensors (~$200) with the wheels plus program them to the car which is a PITA. Just changing the wheels/tires and pressing the reset button is way easier and cheaper.
