View Full Version : Disable tire pressure indicator on 2007

Hi all,

Is there a way to disable the tire pressure indicator on a 2007?
I want to install winter tire on steel wheels instead of my mags and I don't want to pay 70 bucks per wheel for the special valves.

Found this in another forum. I hope it gives you some place to start.

"dealer cannott disable the light because by 2009 all cars will be mandatory to have this function..Service rep said there not authorized to do it even if i brought him the codes.

legally speaking, the dealer won't disable the lights. you can disable tpms using a vag-com. a dealer scan tool can disable tpms as well, though most dealers won't do it."

I didn't know all cars will have that by 2009!
So the valve price will go down if all cars must have that, meanwhile I've put a little black circle of tape over the light. Not very high tech, but it stop anoying me at night!
Thanks for the reply

Did not know about 2009 law for Canada, but can confirm that TPMS became law in US in Sept 2007. Like Michel did regular jobber wheels with snows on my 2008 2.5S. Of course TPMS warning has been on ever since. Dealer was unaware of the requirements, for sensor as i seemed to be the 1st to do snows on extra steel wheels. To correct would be about $1,000 more, replacing wheels to Nissan wheels + adding TPMS valves. Ouch! Dealer will not de-activate sensor so like Michel, I will live with warning in winter months. Do like the idea of black dot on light though (smile)

It can be disabled by going into the bcm configuration and changing the setting to without tpms.

You will still need a nissan scan tool with the nats card! Whats wrong with swapping valve core assy if they will fit the steel rims? I'll admit, it's alot of work but beats putting a picture in front of the warning lite.
