How does a warning light stop people from driving on the 'donut' for 2 months?

No, most people are too damn stupid to check tire pressure when it's riding on the rims. My car has one of these lights on it. They do come in handy, but mine only monitors for differences in tire pressure between wheels (somehow). If they are all 15 psi low, it won't do anything.

More stupid bullshit stuff to toss on cars to drive the prices up.

Maybe they should put "checking air pressure of the tires and fluids" part of the driving test they wouldnt need to pass "laws" like this.

LOL, I wasnt commenting on the law, just the equipment, Jeez!!! we all know how I feel about the government, but anyways who cares, it says it cost about 50 bucks to add it to new cares, Bumpers were something that was mandated too, just as airbags were, this is so minor its not even noticable. its not like tye are going to make you bring you car in and have them put on. who cares.

You been hangin out with PJ or something? I think his horneyness for any argument rubbed off on you today

lol........... lets keep it going then

Minor???? like airbags were minor right. I remember them costing $200 to add to a car. Before ya know it your paying $800-$1200 extra for them. Oh.....and when they happen to go off it's $2000 just to reload them. They'll add $500-800 minimum to a car is my guess and when they break I don't even want to think about fixing them. Besides, if consumers want them manufacturers will make them and competition will perfect them. We don't need no stinking government to mandate them.


How was that????

In a Corvette the monitors tell you exactly what the pressure is in each tire. And thats been standard for a few years now.
Just some useless info!

Reload an airbag?


We just replaced the modules if they discharged.


Then again, I dont have to worry about the ones in my truck, they are OFF. Damn dagerous things they put in cars for the illusion of safety for some people.

This is kinda funny that they are mandating it. Of course auto makers are gonna say it's a "Standard" feature and charge out the ass for it. Plus what about ppl who change there rims? Does this affect the module at all or goto a different tire size? I know in the Original Hummer you couldn't change the rims or tires without upgrading the module. I think it's a dumb idea, I think they should concentrate on making cars more efficient rather than the tiny things that "MAY" save you a 10th of a mpg.

The module is straped on to the rim, it can be moved from wheel to wheel, and for those that switch to a lrager diameter, I'm sure the wheel manufacturers will have a new strap for it.

Am I in the right forum? I coulda sworn this was the open forum. For the record, just because I oppose the conservative christian fundamentalist movement that's going on in the republican party, doesn't mean I'm for everything the democratic party stands for. I didn't vote democratic in the last election. I think the democratic party is almost as corrupt as the republican party.


..but back on topic, I think the extra cost incurred for these tire pressure monitors is worth the peace of mind that the ignorant will pay closer attention. Low tire pressure was the direct cause of the Explorer rollovers a few years ago. Maybe you're smart enough to keep track of your pressures, but that doesn't mean the guy that blows a tire in front of you is.

Just on a side note. I think I am going to start focusing on coming up with inventions like this. Can you imagine how @!#$$ rich you would be if you patented technology like this and then the gov put out a mandate that required EVERY car manufacturer to use it?? Holy shitballs! And think of what a simple idea that was. A sensor that collect PSI data mounted to a giant hose clamp that straps onto your rim. Dammit.

Nice call on the invention idea, I'd bet any odds that the goverment holds the patent for the tire pressure monitor. Someone find out.
Sony just got the Patent to send ultrasonic sound right into your brain using a video game console to stimulate the sense of smell and touch to make the games more real. Gonna be real great the first person they kill from it thinking they got shot in the head by a Desert Eagle.
