You would probably need to find an LH donor car with this option. I believe that the SKIM module (which you should already have) is used as the wireless control module to pick up the TPM sensor signal. You may need this WCM from the donor in order to facilitate the TPM feature. It might help to find someone who has done this before, even if it is worth doing or not:

Some versions of this vehicle are equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) system. It monitors air pressure in all five tires (includes full-size spare).
There is a sensor (transmitter) in each of the vehicle's five wheels. The system alerts the driver when tire pressure falls outside predetermined thresholds (pressure too low or too high). A message is then displayed on the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) located in the overhead console. Tire air pressures in the four road wheels are displayed on the EVIC when chosen. Pressure in the spare tire, although monitored, is not displayed on the EVIC.
The Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) system uses wireless technology to monitor tire air pressure levels. Sensors, mounted to each road wheel as part of the valve stem, transmit tire pressure readings to a receiver located in the overhead console. These transmissions occur once every minute at speeds over 20 mph (32 km/h). The tire pressure status is shown on the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) display upon demand. The Tire Pressure Monitoring system remains active even if it is not displayed in the EVIC.

If any road tire pressure has exceeded the low or high pressure threshold (refer to chart below), the TPM system will display a message on the EVIC and sound a chime. It will then go into the tire pressure display screen and flash the pressure value of the tire that is low or high. This will be displayed for the rest of the ignition cycle, or until either the C/T, MENU, STEP or RESET button is pressed.

If a road tire is replaced by the spare, the TPM system will detect the swap automatically (after the ignition has been cycled) and display "SPARE SWAP DETECTED" along with a chime (This could take up to 10 minutes with the vehicle speed above 20 mph (32 km/h).

NOTE: TPM thresholds have been established for the original tire size equipped on the vehicle.


CAUTION: The use of tire sealants is strictly prohibited for vehicles equipped with the Tire Pressure Monitoring system. Tire sealants can clog tire pressure sensors.


WARNING: DO NOT USE THE EVIC DISPLAY TO MONITOR AIR PRESSURE CHANGES WHILE ADJUSTING AIR PRESSURE IN THE TIRES. THE TPM SYSTEM CANNOT BE EXPECTED TO FUNCTION AS A REAL TIME TIRE PRESSURE GAUGE. THERE CAN BE A DELAY BETWEEN THE INSTANT THE AIR PRESSURE IS ADJUSTED IN A TIRE AND WHEN THE SYSTEM UPDATES THE DISPLAY.
