Mods, This would be a good one to Sticky in this section, because if we change wheels and tires, we have to deal with this and it cost nothing.
All of us that own toyotas get sick of the TPMS issues when we don't put the sensors in our aftermarket wheels. People have come up with some interesting ways to put sensors in pressurized canisters, put them all in the spare tire and what not.
Here is the proper way to eliminate the TPMS light on your late model FJ Cruiser, Tacoma, Tundra, Sequoia, and Land Cruiser. Also, it is fully reversible when the time comes to sell the truck or put the factory wheels back on.
I have performed this in the past on my 2007 FJ, 2008 Tacoma, and now my 2007 Tundra.
Start by removing the Bezel around the Gauge Cluster. The Tacoma and FJ are much easier than the Tundra, so I am going to show you how on the Tundra.
Start at the lower left hand corner and start prying out the bezel with your hands, there is no reason to use tools here for this.
Once you get it started pull it out far enough to reach through the gauge cluster openings to pull and pop the clips evenly with out applying too much force.
Once loose undo the electrical connections that are attached to the bezel, on the Tundra there are quite a few of them.
Then go ahead and undo the large black wire that goes up and over the top of the Bezel openings. Remove it from the guides and let it fall behind the bezel, Also here you are going to have to remove or unclip the vinyl flap that hides the steering colum when fully extended. Stick your fingers through the Bezel and reach down, there are 4 clips holding it on, just pinch them together and they will release away from the bezel. If you have big hands, this can be hard to do.
Once the bezel is removed, there are 4 screws securing the gauge cluster, remove them and keep them in a safe place.
Once removed you will see the wire harness and clip, undo the harness and muscle out the black clip to remove the gauge Cluster.
Now that the cluster is out, set it on a clean bench, if you are worried about scratching it, work on a soft bath towel.
Find the cover clips and very carefully push them out and remove the clear plastic cover.
Next remove the black bezel surround by the same matter.
Now you have your naked bezel, take note of where the instrument needles are, remove the lower right needle by pulling up on it, you may need to leverage your fingers on the vinyl backing to get enough torque to pull it up. Once it slides off, pull the vinyl backing up to expose the lights underneath.
Take a 1" piece of black electrical tape and put it over the small square under the vinyl backing to "block the light" from the TPMS sensor warning lamp. The tape is right at the end of my finger in place under the vinyl backing.
Push the vinyl backing flat again, reinstall the Gauge needle that you removed. (important note, you may have disrupted the location of this gauge. put the needle back on half way, rotate it till you feel tension going to the left, this is resetting it to zero or off. Pull the needle back off and put it back on so that the setting is correct and consistent to when you took it off.)
Put everything back together and enjoy no longer having the stupid TPMS Light warning on your dash!
