There are some aftermarket sensors that you can code with your existing codes so if you buy them, they get programmed to your codes and then you don't have to reprogram your truck when you change wheels
Yer killin' me...I follow you right up to the point of getting a spare TPMS computer. But instead of focusing on that I like the idea of aftermarket sensors with the same code (any ideas on what/where those are?).

Option 2 is just run the winter set with the orange light on. Thanks!

The first thing to know is that some of us in snowy climates have two sets of wheels; winter set on in November and summer set on in April.

I think all of us agree that tire changeovers induce anxiety, they're always in a rush and someone manage to let the air gun get away from them. So to avoid to extra handling of the wheels some of us get a set of TPMS sensors in both sets (minimizes handling). To really avoid the hassle, some of us just switch them out ourselves.

If I was just switching to a new set of wheels, this wouldn't be an issue.

Snow and ice are the real culprits (and ugly mountain passes at 10,000 feet).

the computer is a little module under the dash by the glove box. I reach under and swap the connector in a couple minutes.
It will take 3 seconds to search for who has the programmable sensors. a couple minutes to call local tire shops to see who can program them. they will also need to be able to read your sensors to get the codes.
if you don't have new sensors i would suggest going this route.

Can you put a switch in the circuit to turn the light on and off? The black tape method is good but cant you just put a switch in to turn it on and off?

So I found this post extremely useful. Got rid of mine yesterday. I bought a 12 volt to five bolt converter on amazon which worked great. Wired it in line from the yellow 12 volt wire to the light green wire. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00CX...volt+converter
