You need a programming tool such as a PROCAL

AEV Procal

When I purchased new tires/wheels I got rid of the TPMS sensors to go with regular rubber valve stems. AEV Procal works great, no light, no issues. If your going to bigger tires, regearing, ect you might as well bite the bullet and get one since you can also use the procal to adjust for tire size, gear ratio which not only just keeps your speedometer right but helps to ensure the ESP/Traction control works correctly as well.

The Superchips Programmer does all the same stuff for the same price, I have just never used it.

This ^^^^.

It's too bad the Procal won't allow you to reduce the light threshold to lower than 20 some pounds. We routinely air down to 10PSI, maybe less, and the the stupid light would be on the whole time. I just threw the sensors away and used the Procal to shut the system off.

I was about to order the AEV Procal since my TMPS sensors batteries are dying in my jeep. (I really don't want to replace these at $70/tire)

I know the Procal can disable TPMS down to 0 but I heard the Flashcal can not disable under 10PSI stock. I read the other day that a software download for the flashcal can now also disable TPMS? Can someone confirm?

Cheers
