Yes i'm not worriedf about the actual pressure in the tire but I don't want a light to be on all the time I would liek to know of a proper way of diabling it without pulling a fuse or anything of that sort.

I checked my tire pressure for the first time yesterday. 6K miles but, the dealer had put Nitrogen in them (supposed to be more stable and not lose pressure as rapidly). One front tire had 26 PSI, the other 28 PSI. The rears had 29 PSI each. All are supposed to have 34 PSI. I don't know what PSI triggers the pressure sensors but, I do know that 26 PSI should have done it! As far as I'm concerned, they're a joke!
