As a PA inspector, a tpms light that is on WILL pass state inspection as it is not a dire safety issue.

Let me shed some light, when you had the tires and wheels put together you should have had TMPS sensors installed. The sensors are valves and not band. If they are installed they have to be synced to your car with the tool. You can buy the tool, go to a tire shop, discount tire, or Ford.

Yes. The TPS light isn't anything but a feature.

I don't think the TPMS light can be "tuned out."

Correct. BCM not PCM feature.

On Toyota cars you find the harness, unplug it then ground it to keep the light off but I don't know if our cars is the same system. You can use a pressurized can in the trunk. Works but tricky to do.

Parts need:
Two 2” PVC end caps
One 2” PVC pipe not shorter than 6”
One valve stem from auto zone
PVC All Purpose Cement and PVC Primer Cleaner

I used the 2” PVC because the end caps looked like they would give me the best seal for the valve stems. Drilling a smaller than need hold for the valve stems and then working you way up until you can wiggle and pull the valve stem into place. Getting a good seal on the valve stem is the only part that I think can go wrong, if it has a small leak then you will have to refill the pipe every week or two. The end caps when attached properly with PVC primer and cement are rated up to 160PSI so their wont be any leak problems there. I think my sensors went into sleep mode and had to be activated by using the steps listed in the PDF I will post. It took a day of driving before the light went off. Its been a week now and still no light.

Good luck

O by the way, keep in mind you are disabling a safety device on your car so I am not liable for any harm that may come as a result. This includes bad tire where due to under inflation, over inflation, or the 7 years of bad luck this mod is supposed to cause.
You CAN disable the body for it but I believe it also powers the keyless entry FOB (or so I read) and it would disable both the fob and TPMS so not ideal.

Re: Finally got the rims on

sensors do not come with wheels unless you buy them, so now you must either get the sensors or learn to ignore the light

The old sensors can be swapped over but you have to Unmount and remount the tires. The sensors should pair back no problems

All you gotta do is break the tire off the bead on the outside and push it down.. Then use a torx 10 to remove the screw from the sensor and it comes right out.. Only problem you could run into is removing and reusing the old valve stems.. About half the ones I do break even if you lube them up.. But just about any tire shop should have some and they are cheap..

Ford isn't screwing anyone over. The government mandates all cars to have them now. No way around not having them when you buy any car. Such is the life we live where the government thinks it knows better than us. Too much nanny stuff being added nowadays and we as consumers have to pay for it.
