It probably measures wheel speed via the abs sensors and if one is faster than the others over time it lights up. When the system is installed on the car of course.

it's there b/c in 05 they are adding tire pressure sensors in the valve stems, just like in the corvette. it monitors the air pressure of the tire and lets you know when it gets low. bottom line: a $200 mistake if you don't take it apart correctly when you break down a tire.

the sensor is usually attached to the inside of the rim, via a really large hose clamp.

And yes you need to break the tire down in a proper sequence to avoid damaging the sensor.

My sisters 99 Grand Am GT has one of those systems on it. Good thing it does or she might try to drive on a flat tire.

Actually GM uses the ABS system to measure the rolling circumference of each wheel. So if one is less then the others its tells the driver. But if all 4 are loosing pressure at the same rate it will not notice a difference.

POS tire monitors should be illegal, they only make people less responsable for their own actions!

Please excuse this little rant but I deal with it all day being a mechanic.
