Tire pressure

Ode anyone know if there is a fuze that supplies the tire pressure alarm. I changed my stock rims out for some wrangler rims and they don't have the pressure readers in the valve steams. I just want to turn it off for now.

I don't believe there is a fuse because everyone would remove it if it existed. I have plain jane steel wheels without sensors for my winter tires and I put a patch of black electric tape on the dash to hide the stupid TPMS idiot light. When I get new winter tires next year I may get aftermarket sensors installed on the wheels.

It's a safety feature required by the government in the TREAD act. "They" are not going to make it easy to defeat.

There is no fuse or 'off' feature on these that I'm aware of, we've looked. I bought some Dorman aftermarket sensors that haven't learned on there own and it's been about a month since I've installed the new tires and wheels. I may have to make a trip to the dealer to have this procedure performed.

The following can be performed by your dealer or a service shop with the correct tools.
Perform one of the following to make the system learn the new sensor ID.
a. Use the TPM-RKE Analyzer, Special Tool 9936, with the Scan Tool to program the WCM/SKREEM with the tire pressure sensor ID. This is part of the TPM Diagnostic Verification Test.
b. Once the vehicle has remained stationary for more than 20 minutes, drive vehicle for a minimum of 10 minutes while maintaining a continuous speed above 15 mph (24 km/h). During this time, the system will learn the new sensor ID. This is part of the TPM Diagnostic Verification Test.
NOTE: If a sensor cannot be trained, refer to appropriate diagnostic information.
