Just bought new wheels and tires already mounted with no TPMS.

Can any of the tuners turn off the light? Might push me over the edge of buying one!


Thanks

2 options replace the sensors or put a sticker over the warning light...
3rd option - learn to ignore it, like I have for the last 4 years

If you buy one it's going to be for turning off the WOT restriction. .... I have a Hypertech and it isn't capable of doing anything with the tpms light and I don't think any of them can. Mine has been on for about 4-5 years, you get used to it.

Tuners won't do it. It's illegal per federal law to disable the TPMS system. Rockauto.com has Dorman direct-fit TPMS sensors for $40 each that work well and have a lifetime warranty. TPMS trigger tools can be had for under $20. Programing the sensors is easy; all you need is a pin and a wire lead with alligator clip ends (some just use a bent paper clip). Next to the OBD II diagnostic plug under the driver's side of the dash is the TPMS diagnostic plug (white, 2-pin plug with a single wire that me be taped to the harness). Stick the pin into the diagnostic connector for the TPMS and when you turn the key "on," ground the wire 6x in 10-seconds and leave grounded. The TPMS warning light will flash, indicating program mode. Go to the left-front tire and hold the TPMS trigger tool next to the tire, close to the tire valve, and press the button. When the sensor ID is registered, the exterior lights will flash. Continue the same procedure at each wheel, going to the right-front, right-rear and left-rear. Turn off the ignition and the TPMS sensor will be registered. If the lights don't flash at a particular wheel, it's likely the sensor at that wheel is bad.

4th option - put the TPMS sensors in your new wheels, like you're supposed to.
