1. A system for monitoring a status of a parameter of a tire for a vehicle, the system comprising:

  • a sensor, disposed within the tire, for generating a signal indicative of the parameter of the tire independently of magnitude of the parameter;

    a programmable processor, in electrical communication with the sensor for determining status of the tire parameter by comparing the tire parameter to a selected threshold;

    a transmitter, in electrical communication with the processor for transmitting a status signal indicative of the status of the tire parameter along a first communications link;

    a monitor, in communication with the first communications link, for monitoring the status of the tire parameter;

    a communication unit in electrical communication with the processor having a first receiver for receiving a processor control command; and

    a remote controller, positionable for communication with the communication unit via a second communications link, for initiating the processor control command.
