    That was a great mod,;)with the I 4 engine it would slow the truck down a little when it kicked on from using defrost.:confused: Now if there was a way to shut off that tire pressure light!:cool:

    Thats the only 100% positive option I've read about.

    Their have been people claiming on "less than superior forums" than this one, of ways to cut this, weld that, jump on your toes three times, etc. But they only seem to work for a few days then the system "errors out" and causes a continuous flashing annunciator (Way more of a distraction).
    And I don't feel comfortable with a PVC pipe idea with 35Psi of air sitting in my cab. Just an opinion though.:D

    You woke up a 6 year old thread and the OP hasn't been here since February.

    Maybe try a PM directly to the OP ?

    I did try searching for the instructions, but there were too many results to look through. I thought the point of this forum was to share information and learn from each other, who cares if i woke up an old thread? The gentleman below provided the link, so that means this method of inquiring worked.

    Thank you very much!
