Do the 2007 FJ's have the Tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) or is this a 2008 feature... had a coffee with bender705 today, (Super nice fella) and his 08 has it, If I do have man did I miss the boat......
Correct. It was not available in 07, and comes standard on the 08s.
Until they put a shut off switch on the system, you are better off without it. Every time you air down for offroading, it will trip the system, and need resetting. The spare tire gets cold and you get a pressure warning.
If you are not able to judge tire pressure from looking at it, it may prove useful to prevent months of riding on a low tire, but otherwise the system is problematic at best.
My 08 has them as well. Another down side is unless you plan to use the nice mags in the winter (end of the nice mags with all the salt and calium...) You are going to have to buy 4 new sensors for your winter rims (90$ each). As if the winter rubber didn't cost enough on these beasts... Take care...
I had the air sensor on my last car and a friend of mine has it on his 07 Escalade, they don't work. When the weather changes, spring and fall, the sensors trip and the only way to reset is to go to the dealer, or put a piece of tape over the (!).
Just found out another bit of info on the TPMS. If you do decide to buy the sensors for your winter rims you are going to have to shell out 40$ (Toyota dealer) the reinstall the sensor ID evry time you swap your rims!!! There has to be a work around out there some where... Anybody?
