Tire Sensor driving me bonkers

Just got a nice '08 JKU with with a 4" skyjacker suspension lift over 305/60r18 Nitto Terra Grapplers. I've been running 35# of air and the &%*$%# tire sensor just keeps blinking and bonging. I've checked the pressures with several different guages and while the all vary a pound or two all the tires read the same on each guage. Is there a way to disable the sensor system? Is there an app for that?

AEV Procal will disable it.

Did you change wheels? If so, do they have sensors? either case, Yes, the AEV Procal will adjust or turn off the TPMS.

What they said + all the other useful functions like recalibrating the speedo for the tire size and more.

flashing means the sensor is bad.

If they are on aftermarket wheels, 90% chance you have no TPMS sensors.

So, does the low pressure alarm just sound once, and then leave you alone (I could live with that), or does it sound continuously until you remedy the situation?

The low pressure alarm rings once and just stays lit. If it is blinking the sensors didn't get transferred over to the new wheels and you can disable it, or go get your original wheels back and have the sensors put on the new stems

Thanks - I think I can ignore it if the tone just sounds once and then the light stays on. I'm not getting new wheels - just thinking about airing down when I go off road.
