Anyway to disable the tire pressure monitor system or TPM :)

Subject says it all....... i put some aftermarket wheels on my '05 Libby and now have to deal with the annoying light on my dash and quick beep error code from the EVIC....... not a big deal, but annoying enough.

Hi, Couldn't they put them on the new wheels for you? I thought they were removable.

I would ask why they didnt put them on the new wheels first. I do think the light can be turned off by the Dealer via the cars CPU.

Tpms

It could be the new wheels are steel. The sensors don't work with most steel wheels. I think I read somewhere it is illegal to disable TPMS on 2005 and newer vehicles.

illegal? that's the first time I hear this. Some people lower it to 20's, I'd hate hearing beep beep beep and flashes overhead while crawling..

I don't know if it is that the wheels are steel or not. Starting in 2007 all passenger vehicles are required by law to have some sort of TPM system onboard. So some are going to have steelies and some are not. I don't see DCX using 2 different TPM systems. The TPM sensors should work with steels as the valve stem part that sticks out of the wheel is the antennae.

Tpms

http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/...nalrule.6.html

SUMMARY: This final rule establishes a new Federal motor vehicle safety standard (FMVSS) requiring installation of a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) capable of detecting when one or more of a vehicle’s tires is significantly under-inflated. This final rule responds to a mandate in the Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability, and Documentation (TREAD) Act. This final rule requires installation in all new light vehicles of a TPMS capable of detecting when one or more of the vehicle’s tires, up to all four tires, is 25 percent or more below the manufacturer’s recommended inflation pressure (placard pressure) or a minimum activation pressure specified in the standard, whichever is higher.

DATES:

Effective Date: This final rule is effective April 8, 2005, except for Subpart G of 49 CFR Part 585, which is effective September 1, 2005.

Compliance Date: Consistent with the phase-in commencing October 5, 2005, all new light vehicles must be equipped with a TPMS that meets the requirements of the standard by September 1, 2007, with the following exceptions. Vehicle manufacturers need not meet the standard’s requirements for the TPMS malfunction indicator and related owner’s manual language until September 1, 2007 (i.e., at the end of the phase-in), and vehicles produced by final-stage manufacturers and alterers must be equipped with a compliant TPMS (including a malfunction indicator) by September 1, 2008. However, manufacturers may voluntarily certify vehicles to FMVSS No. 138 and earn carry-forward credits for compliant vehicles, produced in excess of the phase-in requirements, that are manufactured between April 8, 2005, and the conclusion of the phase-in.

Check your valve stems, if they look like these, then they are the TPMS stems.

Thanks for the info. It should not be illegal to disable the PSI monitor on EVIC. Jeeps have TPMS on dashboard, EVIC is PSI monitor.

Its not illegal to not have the TPM, you cant turn it off, its part of the wireless control module (or SKREEM module depending on the vehicle) which also controls the transponder in the key and the RKE. Its there to stay, dealers can't disable it and can't reset it. It has to reset on its own when the sensors are in place. The EVIC has nothing to do with the TPM anymore, all it does is display the results.
