    Is it constantly on? In the mean time, check your spare's air pressure, since the TPMS senses all 5 tires. At least you'll not have to worry about the warning light...until you replace your wheels.

    If you like the peace of mind a TPMS system provides, you may be able to add TPMS sensors to your new wheels. That system has saved me from being stranded and/or destroying a tire.

    The tpms system is a good idea, but most times the idiot light version these trucks have is more of an annoyance than a benefit. The system my G8 had told you the exact air pressure of every tire so you could see which one was low and how low it was. The Toyota version is just kinda like, there's a low tire but were not gonna tell you how low or which one lol. Honestly mine was on and off so often that I didn't even pay attention to it anymore.

    Fully agree! I've been swapping a lot of wheels lately and the TPMS system has been a pain.

    Does anyone have a write up or pics of how to do this? I want to remove my led light as well and don't want to remove the wrong one or mess something up. Did you carefully break it off or just desoilder it?

    Just wondering the same thing. Is there a write up on how to remove the LED?
    I just got new Dill 7002A sensors installed ($45 each) in all 5 tires, and the computer's not picking up the signal! So frustrating

    They have to be programmed to the TPMS computer. I would go back to the shop you had it done too and see about that

    or you could cut one wire and put it on a keyed IGN+ and the cluster will never light up the tpms light again...
