Can you turn off TPMS?

I am putting a snow tires on my 2013 mustang and I got another set of rims but they have no TPMS on them. Is it possible to turn off this option? Thanks

idk, I covered the warning light with tape...I just have to hit reset on the info center each start up (and occasionally randomly) simple & cheap like a good date.

As far as I know they cannot be. I spoke to a local tuner and he said he searched every were and could not find any way to disable. I'd pull cluster and locate the bulb and pull it out.

Not possible to turn off. Another government mandated safety feature for a preventative maintenance procedure all drivers can do themselves and have done for decades.
No big deal you think? It keeps us safer?
How about when your states vehicle inspections begin requiring it to work to pass and to repair yours will cost $500?
Remember when you just checked your own air pressures? Knew how to change a tire instead of calling another man to do it for you? Looked behind you before backing instead of at a camera?
Vote. Write letters and emails. Stop government mandated costly gimmicks on our cars.

Don't be the sheep, all this extra crap on our cars isn't what we need. We need less distracted, responsible and free vehicle operation. Not costly toys to sap our wages.

I am 52 and never needed a light to maintain my cars except for the light I need to see. Thanks for the replies

Remember that the company (s) that produce the tpms sensors are probably paying off some officials to pass these laws so they can stay in business

I'm working on a way around this but will not be able to market it due to legal reasons. I should be able to make a how-to for off-road use only.

Let me guess....you get a piece of 2 inch PVC pipe, and two caps. Using PVC cement, glue on one cap, place the 4 original tire transmitters in the tube (or buy new ones and have a tire store program them to your car). Now install an automotive tire air valve in the other cap, glue this cap on the other side of the tube. When the PVC cement is dry, pressurize the tube to 35 PSI, and carry this tube with you under the seat.

Basically yes. I had a better packaging drawn up to take up even less space and stow in spare tire well. Just haven't taken the time to break down my factory focus wheels and pull the sensors out yet.

By the way...the factory sensors are always transmitting. I park about 10 feet from my factory wheels/tires and it resets the sensor every night. About 15 miles from home I get the warning and light.

Still don't understand why people are too stupid to notice a low tire. I can visibly see a 5# difference in tires...

people do notice when the tire pressure is low but that doesn't sell.$100.00 dollar tire pressure sensor sells.i work for a city fleet and order thousands of dollars of tire pressure sensors in a month's time.don't forget the tool you have to have to reset them.i'm not sure but i think each manufacturer has a different tool. please correct me if i'm wrong.it's even a tax payer's burden.

I like the 2" PVC idea. Tape over the display would drive me bonkers
