    Default Disable Tire Pressure Monitor Alert?

    I use aftermarket wheels on my GXP for winter. They have no sending units for tire pressure. Is there a way to disable the alert so I don't have to reset the readout every time I start the engine? Also, the yellow warning light is always lighted in the cluster with the sending units not communicating with the monitoring system.

    Nope, not that I am aware of.

    No tuner program that I know of can disable this feature.

    Buy 4 more units and put them in your aftermarket wheels.

    Yes, at RockAuto---$40 each X 4 = $160 plus installation. Not going to happen.

    Then your answer is to deal with the light. There isn't another way.

    Gotta pay to play.

    You could save a couple bucks buying through napa online to get the 10% off, would be around $140-145. Shoot maybe even auto zone has better online discounts once you reach over $100.

    Costco installed 1 for me for 35 bucks. Very reasonable.

    to avoid buying new sensors, you can pay labor to remove your current sensors, buy std valve stems, pay a welding shop to build a pressurizable box, put your TPMS sensors inside and pressurize it to 35psi and let it roll around in your trunk

    should only cost about 200-250$ and youll be able to put any tires/rims on it you want afterwards

    I've seen guys build the pressure box out of pvc using nothing but the glue to hold it together.

    Clever Idea. I could put three of the OEM wheelsrims in the trunk and one in the back seat. Problem solved!!
