does anyone know how to disable (not reset or register) the TPMS for an '08?
...didnt even think about that. i sure hope it does! that would solve a few things for me....ahh but now its dark outside...Check and see if it has its own dedicated fuse.
And yet another asinine, inane government intrusion into our already overly complicated lives just to allow people too damn dumb to operate a vehicle to live long enough to breed even more idiots. Hate this shit.You can not disable the tpms system. Mandated by federal law, huge fines if someone tries to disable it. They will take away your firstborn child and send you to labor camps for 3000 years. I am sure there is a way to keep the light from comming on by cutting the signal wire or something to that effect but there is no way to "turn it off".
As I said, an asinine system forced on us by government wonks who's sole purpose is to allow idiots too stupid to operate a motor vehicle to live long enough to breed more idiots so we need even more regulations.[rant][rant][rant][rant]TPMS is such a retarded thing.
"why would you want to disable it, it tells you if your tires are low"
Seriously? OH MY GOD how on earth did we survive in this world before TPMS was a thing?!?!!?!
Such an annoying light, up here in winter it's such a pain, Start the vehicle, says their low. Nope, they aint. few miles of highway driving, tires heat up, light goes out. Freaking annoying. I look at my tires, I check it's pressure. I don't need no stupid light to tell me anything
yep yep yep! Traction control, ABS, all that shit. Garbage.

Because that aftermarket system doesn't disable the Ford system, so you still will have the warning lights. I wouldn't trust the caps not to leak either, that's now how valve stems were designed to be used. Okay for cars that don't have TPMS at all and you want real-time readouts, but a poor option for cars that have integrated TPMS.I can buy an after-party TPMS system that has valve cap sensors and a cigarette lighter plugin receiver/display for $75, which is cheaper than just one Ford wheel sensor and the cost of having it replaced. So why pay all the extra money for inside the tire sensors when there is a more user friendly product available, and you don't have the chime going off or that warning light always on????
