Default tire pressure monitor in spare?

I called the dealer about my TPMS light staying on. I have checked all four tires and they are above 32 psi. The service guy said the spare tire may be low. Does the spare have a TPMS? It appears I can't add air to it unless I take it down.

I replied over at www.sb9t.com/ but I'll say it here too. The TPS system is set up to register each tire in it's location (eg front - right, left - rear) and it says noting in the manual about setting up the spare. The spare is a steel wheel and I doubt they put a sensor in that. I suppose it's possible but not likely IMHO.

FWIW My Titan has TPS and a fullsized aluminum wheel spare. The spare has no TPS in it. Most likely because it would drive you nuts if the air got low and set off the sensor and also it is a hassle to remove just to bump up the air pressure 5 psi.

My friends Toyota 4Runner has TPS in spare and it really drive him nuts when he need to lower the spare in the cold winter days to pump it.

As for OP, make sure you measure it correctly when tires are COLD. And drive a few miles for the TPMS to work correctly.
