BODY CONTROL MODULE (BCM)
The BCM is shown with the instrument panel LH removed. The BCM reads the air pressure signal received by the tire pressure receiver, and controls the low tire pressure warning lamp as shown below. It also has a self-diagnosis function to detect a system malfunction.
A sensor-transmitter integrated with a valve is installed in each wheel. It transmits a detected air pressure signal in the form of a radio wave when the vehicle is moving. The radio signal is received by the tire pressure receiver.
TIRE PRESSURE RECEIVER
The tire pressure receiver (1) is located next to the steering column assembly (2) and is shown with the lower instrument panel LH removed. The tire pressure receiver receives the air pressure signal transmitted by the transmitter in each wheel.
The combination meter receives tire pressure status from the BCM using CAN communication. When a low tire pressure condition is sensed by the BCM, the low tire pressure warning lamp is activated.
