More than likely people will ignore it like all other idiot lights. When I used to work for a mechanic in high school we used to have a lot of people come in and say "that check engine light had been on for months. I never thought ther could be a problem"... or "what do mean my engine seized the check oil light was only one for a few weeks..."DaleB said:If people don't have enough sense to ride with proper inflation in their tires, they will probably sit there and trip out on the flashing light.

Temperature can be useful information, it could tell you in those rare cases a tire has an internal separation problem causing excess flexing resulting in higher temperature, I would think.sujainath said:I have been looking into tire pressure monitoring systems as I am about to get a 2003 MDX within the next week. The SmarTire kit seems to be the most popular and well known.
I also found an alternative system: www.intellivalve.com
that uses the valve stem as the sensor. It costs about the same as the SmarTire system. Just wondering if anyone knows why one would be better than the other in the long run, has had any experience with both, etc. Certainly seems the SmarTire system has had good things said about it.
