Default 2010 TPMS Sensor

I was checking tire pressures today, and I noticed that only one of my tires has a TPMS sensor. Is this normal on a 2010? I would have thought that all the tires (minus the spare) should have the sensors in them. Also, at what pressure does the light in the dash come on? Thank you

My light sets at 27 or 28 psi and there are 4 TPMS sensors. I don't know why a 2010 would be different.

The reason that I ask is because I have two different valve stems in the tires.

I have three valve stems that look like this:

I have one valve stem that looks like this:

I thought that TPMS sensors looked like the second picture. I may be wrong, but I was just wondering. Also, will the light come on if there is too much air in the tire?

That's just a shorter valve cap. The tire shop must have misplaced yours and tossed that one on.
I don't believe the light will come on with excessive pressure. I have had mine up to 60lbs when I was playing with tire pressure last year in my new 35" LT's.
