There definitely is a path to tpms through the obdII port. That's how the dealer resets it. And aftermarket companies too.

But what I was talking about is different.
Since your tpms are in a handy dandy pipe, you could pull the under dash module and then remove your canister to the house. Then see if the light goes away. You'd be a hero to many members

I could just let the air out of it like I do when I check the mileage with the light on. I might try that the next time my dash is apart, which will be soon to run the wires for my sub. Could not anyone with the light on try this?

Anyone could. but better if someone who had the light off tried it. But if anyone wants to try this and maybe be a hero, let us know. I'm still running my sensors so I won't be able to do this.

I knew where the Module was in the FJC- that fix was to cut a wire and make it go away. Where is the module in the Tundra? Ill pull it out of there to see what the difference is!

If you find it and pull it, take a picture and I'll try it when I take my dash apart next week. We are in the middle of a blizzard here on LI, so it won't happen today.

There is definitely an electrical fix to this. When you figure it out, please share with the rest of us.
By law, it was designed to not be a programming option

Whats preventing you guys from having the sensors installed in your new wheels? I'm running my stock sensors in my after market wheels with no problem at all. As long as you had aluminum wheels to begin with... they fit in the new wheels as if they were stock. Maybe I'm missing the point here???

I had the Styled Steel Wheels and they have 40 degree sensors. I got some TRDs and the 40s wouldn't work.

Nasty... glad I'm not the only one, I thought I was crazy for a second there. haha... I'm seriously reading this thread thinking WTF?! If you have aluminum wheels, switch the sensors... if you had stock steel wheels... buy new sensor for a couple hundred bucks and this won't be an issue and you'll have your TPMS system working the way it should.

This thread is for people that have the problem and don't want to spend the money on new sensors.

Well... I guess those people exist. But I personally wouldn't put aftermarket wheels on my trruck if I didn't wanna buck up the extra cash to do it the correct way.
