    Tire Pressure Monitoring on a 2016

    Can someone please confirm the 2016 Mazda6 uses the ABS wheel speed sensors to indirectly monitor tire pressure?

    I'm planning to have the wheels powder coated and may remove the tires myself. I don't want to damage the TPMS modules if they exist. From the owner's manual and looks of the valve stems, it sure seems there are no pressure modules.

    Thx

    All cars sold in the US are mandated by the government since 2007 to have TPMS.

    Yep. But that doesn't answer the question on whether there is a pressure sensor or it utilizes the ABS sensors. The ABS sensor method works by measuring the tire rotations per minute. If air pressure changes, the number or RPM of the wheel will change and provide an alert.

    Just remove them, not familiar with Gen 3 6s but every TPMS sensor I've dealt with was in the wheel and you just loosen up the nut holding them on and slide them out. If you don't want to have a tire place do it for you as you got to have the tires removed any ways.

    You seem to be missing the question - it is "is there a pressure sensor, or not". I'm guessing not, and it's not a huge deal for me either way, but thought I'd throw it out there.
