i dont believe so. i believe they are LED's that are soldered onto the cluster. you could pull the dash and snip the LED off the board but thats gonna be a lotta work.

Would a little piece of black electrical tape work?

stupid TPMS systems.. bah

If you take your apart to do the TPMS light removal, or cover the LED up with tape, may as well get some nice white-face gauges or something too while you're all taken apart.

Not too bad of a job, something that can be taken inside and worked on.

You have to get it programmed out...I know that the dealer I got my truck from did it because I popped a tire and ran on a spare for a week or two and my light never went off. No need to get into the cluster.

What dealer did this for you and do you have any paperwork to prove this?

I find it hard to believe that a single dealer can do this but nobody else has been able to in the last 5 years the 2nd gen has been in production.

Actually, I assumed that they did...They are a POS dealer so i thought that instead of fixing it. All I really know is that my lights don't go off and I have had a flat and a spare in the last few months...Sorry for the confusion. You can have them reset through programing...but I hear thats a temp fix.

I would check your spare to see if it has a rubber valve stem or an aluminum one that is normally attached to the TPMS (they may have switched it for you).

I'm pretty sure my spare isn't TPMS. My point is there have been reasons for my light to go off, but it has not. I don't know why, but it doesn't. I doubt the previous owner took the time to take the bulb out since it was a work truck.

A small piece of electrical tape to cover the TPMS indicator on the back of the display panel would do the trick.

Why didnt you just move the TPMS sensor to the new wheels? I do it all the time when I get custom wheels at work. Also, if a sensor is missing the light will not go off for about 50 miles I think. I put on a spare set of wheels/ tires when I got dyno'd and everytime I started the truck, I could go 50 miles before the light came on, and it reset when I shut the truck off.
