Hey Steve, get this. On MB's with Distronic cruise control, the radar unit has to be adjusted after a wheel alignment is performed! If the vehicle's thrust angle is changed it affects the aim of the unit. Two years ago MB flew me from N.J. to California for three days just for a training course on Distronic radar adjustment!!! Concerning tire pressure monitoring, which manufacturer uses wheel speed/size to determine pressure loss? MB uses pressure sensors inside the wheels ( they're actually the tire valves ) which transmit temperature and pressure data to antennae in each wheel well. As far as technology goes I have a nick-name for my SDS lap-top. I call it the "Digital Dipstick".
