I wonder what the issue is with garages turning work down. Is any special equipment needed?  Maybe it is a time consuming job,or they don't have the specific knowledge. Did they not even  give you a quote? 

 

Do the main tyre places do it- Kwik fit etc?

Yes ask for a price ow

That's exactly how it does work, certainly on my car anyhow. You don't have to go to the dealer if your tyre goes a bit soft.

Mine indicates if the pressure drops by say 4 or 5 psi from target level, so far more sensitive than just for flats that you might feel whilst driving.

hmm. On my car it has come on once due to flat tyre, and twice due to a failing sensor which had to be replaced!

about £200 (similar price from two different garages). This was for a mini, and I think their parts are more expensive than other brands though.

Yes, have used the one on Penistone road twice and they were good (despite the companies reputation....).

Make sure it works off sensors first. I have a tyre pressure warning light for over or under, but no sensors, it uses the ABS sensors (I think) over all 4 wheels to work out if the overall pressure is out of spec.
