Makes sense! I took my car to the dealer for an oil change last winter and they said they couldn't get my TPMS to register (they're aftermarket) but when I ran over a nail, the screen gave me a different TPMS error than usual which leads me to believe that it was still sending signals once the pressure dropped ~25%.
