Tire pressue sensor light ???

Ok, Here is the deal. I just picked up this truck and it has tundra wheels on it w/o the tire pressure sensors and the light keeps flashing, is there a way to disable it ?? Without tearing the dash apart?? What shold I expect to pay for 4 used sensors, will I be able to find any???

Thanks for all the help on a great fourm you guys have here...I am learning allot.

Ok...Before I get into too much trouble, I did a search and unpluged the TPMS ECU but the light is now solid on, will it take a few key cycles for it go out???

Thanks again

I have the same problem, light flashed for about a minute and then stayed on. Do I just inflate the tires and then reset the sensor?

Check your spare tire air pressure!

Flashing means there is at least one broken sensor. You would need to get it diagnosed (only way I know to do that is go to the dealer) and then repaired.
