    Just like the title states.. I got a 2012 and have been searching how to disable the TPMS on my taco. I have found from 07 and up people state that you have to apply power to the blue wire near the glove box vs the 06 you could just ground it. I haven't had a chance to do this, but would love to get rid of the TPMS.

    I am wondering if any 2012 owners confirmed that this worked for their truck.


    And yes, I am aware of the pipe bomb method and wheel barrel wheel too.

    New to this question, what exactly is the benefit of disabling the TPMS?

    I think that ^ is your best option unless you have a friend at the dealership that can find a way to disable this in the computer somehow. The other thing I've heard of, but only when changing tires, is to remove them, stick them in a PVC pipe sealed with a bicycle tire valve mounted on one of the caps and pressurize it, then mount it on the frame somewhere... but you already knew that :D

    Here is a picture of what that would look like....

    I have a 2012 and disabled the light by doing the pvc pipe mod and sticking it in the storage container behind the seat no light for 4 months now. Cost maybe $10 in parts very easy and cost effective.

    No need to disable you can keep the TPMS with aftermarket wheels. Most new wheels are machined to accept the sensors just reinstall your sensors in the new wheels along with a $4 dollar rebuild kit, which should be done anytime you have the tires replaced new wheels or no.
