Default Where is the audible TPMS alarm located?... - 26th February 2018, 07:18 PM

I have an '06 first gen Mini, full JCW, and I've now had another warning of low tire pressure come on and not been aware of it. I was on the freeway with the top down, couldn't hear the alarm, and only when I happened to notice the warning light when I changed direction so the sun wasn't on the dash did I notice it. I ruined two new tires that ran for an extended time at 18 psi and 11 psi. (Actually the tire installer's fault, but that's a different story.)

I'd like to find out where the audible warning signal thingy is located so I can tap into the wiring and hook up something that will be louder. I have a Screamer (amplifies the sound from a radar detector for motorcycle use) and I'd like to hook that up so next time I get a warning, I'll be made aware of it immediately.

Thanks much!

I didnít have much success in locating the chime box but other posts are suggesting the chime volume can be increased through the musical note button on the unit. More info in the manual below....
