The tire pressure monitor system warns the driver when a significant loss, or gainof tire pressure occurs in any of the 4-tires and allows the driver to display theindividual tire pressures and their locations on the driver information center.

The system uses the body control module (BCM), driver information center, instrumentcluster, a radio frequency (RF) transmitting pressure sensor in each wheel/tire assembly,and the serial data circuit to perform the system functions. Each sensor has an internalpower supply with an approximate 10-year service life.

When the vehicle is stationary, the sensor's internal accelerometer is inactive, whichputs the sensors into a Stationary state. In this state the sensors sample tire pressureonce every 30-seconds and do not transmit at all if the tire pressure does not change.As vehicle speed increases, centrifugal force activates the sensors internal accelerometercausing the sensors to go into Wake and then Drive mode. In Drive mode, the sensorssample tire pressure once every 30-seconds and transmit in Drive mode once every 60-seconds.The BCM receives and translates the data contained in each sensors RF transmissioninto sensor presence, sensor mode, and tire pressure. The BCM sends the tire pressureand tire location data to the driver information center via the serial data circuitwhere they are displayed.

The sensors continuously compare their last pressure sample to their current pressuresample and will transmit in Learn Mode-Pressure Triggered if a 8.3-kPa-(1.2-psi) changein tire pressure has been detected in either a Stationary or Drive state. When thetire pressure monitor system detects a significant loss, or gain of tire pressure,the tire pressure monitor indicator icon is illuminated on the instrument clusterand if equipped, a check tire pressure type message is displayed on the driver informationcenter. Both the indicator icon and driver information center message can be clearedby adjusting the tire pressures to the recommended pressures and driving the vehicleabove 40-km/h-(25-mph) for at least 2-minutes.

If power is disconnected from the BCM or if the vehicle battery is disconnected, eachtire pressure monitor sensor ID is retained but all of the tire pressure informationis lost. Under these circumstances the BCM cannot assume that the tire pressures weremaintained over an unknown period of time. If equipped, the driver information centerwill display all dashes and the scan tool will indicate a default tire pressure valueof 1020-kPa(148-psi) for each tire. Driving the vehicle above 40-km/h-(25-mph) for at least 2-minuteswill activate the sensors causing the driver information center to display the currenttire pressures. The EL-46079/J-46079 tire pressure monitor diagnostic tool, EL-50448 tire pressure monitor sensor activationtool, or equivalent may also be used to activate the sensors as well.

The BCM has the ability to detect malfunctions within the tire pressure monitor system.In the event a DTC is set, the tire pressure monitor indicator icon on the instrumentcluster will flash for 1-minute and then remain illuminated after the ignition isturned ON and the instrument cluster bulb check has been completed. Any malfunctiondetected will cause the driver information center to display a service tire monitorsystemtype message. For more information on other functions of the BCM, refer toKeyless Entry System Description and Operation.
