I did not know that my 02 Monte SS had a TPMS until the low tire pressure warning popped up on the dash last week. I went to the nearest free air and checked the tires, low and behold the right front tire was down 5 lbs. I added the five pounds and reset the low tire warning as per owners manual. I went to my tire store and had a nail in the tire, had it fixed. Apparently the tires don't have tpms sensors in the tires but use the speed sensor in the wheel hubs to measure difference in wheel speed to detect lower air tire pressure. I checked all the tire pressures a few days later and four different psi's so adjusted all to the factory 30 psi, going to have some choice words with my tires store on the next visit.
