TPC works from the ABS sensors constantly monitoring the revolutions of the wheel. If one loses air the revolutions of the wheel drop and the sensor lets the TPC know flagging up the message.
For a long time i thought mine was faulty as there were no monitors/sensors attached to the wheels. Thought it was wierd that every time there would be a slow puncture.
A post put that right for me in the e39 discusssion.
