How can I disable the tire pressure monitoring system?

Postby jdauph04 [OP] » Jan 27 2011, 11:22pm

I couldn't care less about the tpms, I'll stick with the old fashioned tire pressure guage, but I'm sick of the light coming on saying service tire pressure system all the time. Does anyone know how I can disable that so the whole tpms system is just off. Thanks!

I imagine your Silverado came with the Driver Information Center- can you disable it from there? Otherwise, check with the dealership? Just my 2 cents...

I do not think you can, and the dealer certainly will not do it for you. The way I understand it, they are required by law on any 2008 or newer vehicle, that weighs less than 10,000 GVW. Expect to see lots of error messages and if you have OnStar, you will get many more. It may be worth putting the TPMS in.

The easiest way is to have your tire center swap out the tire valves with some that don't have the Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor (TPMS)
modules. You might want to save those - they are worth a bundle... about $68 each
If you want to do what you want to do, you have to do what you have to do.

If he has valves without sensors (RFID), I would think the computer/DIC will still be looking for them, and thus, still give error messages. Right?

Hmmm. Not sure what it would do. Could be even MORE annoying! That got me thinking - when you replace tires, should you also replace the BATTERIES in the Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor (TPMS) modules?

Cha Ching!!!

Ahahahahahaha!

If you figure out a way to disable tpms you'll be a rich SOB.

Gotta live with the light pal.
