TPMS on 2012 WK2 Laredo 4x4?

Do all 2012 WK2 models have TPMS? I had a flat from running over glass that shredded the tire and by the time I pulled over it was completely flat. No TPMS message appeared though. I looked in my manual and it refers to TPMS but didn't know if my model doesn't have it. I also couldn't see any sensors on the wheels. I bought the Jeep new from a dealer in March of 2012. Thanks for any insight.

All 2012 models either have the TPMS warning or display. The warning lights a little lamp when pressure is low. The display also shows you the tire pressures. The TPMS sensor is the base part of the valve stem.

A tire shop can use their scanner and determine if there are sensors installed and if they are working. All models except the SRT8 use the same sensors. I think I read somewhere that pressure is sampled at 10 or 20 minute intervals, not continuously, but I dunno. So a blow out may not register unless you drive on it for while.

I belive in 2007 it became a federal requirement to have some sort of tpms on all vehicles.
