You don't really flush them, you use either a piece of weed wacker line or a long plastic zip tie to kind of snake the drains. You can use a little water to help.

When my SAT was out, SAT was grayed out on the audio menu. So it sounds like the SAT module is OK which is really good news since that bugger is expensive.

+1

My TPM goes off if the tire loses more than about 2 psi. As Yorgi said, keeps from gutting the tire and quite possibly the rim.
