    Yep. Just sounds like it's going to explode when I run it. Had it out last weekend for some 4x4. I have only driven it 3 times in the past 2-3 months.

    I hacked my 2010 Yaris TPMS module, and cut one lead and
    soldered to another, installed a switch

    when running my TPMS wheels, I turn it on...works like the gubmint wants it to

    when running wheels without TPMS, I flip the switch and the light on the
    dash goes away, and all my VSC and TRAC still works. works sweet.
    I do not know if I can make this work on
    a tacoma, but when I get my 2013 tacoma soon, I will deep-dive and see
    if the same switch can be slapped in

    I've had my pvc canister in the little cubby in the bed for 2 solid winters. I haven't had to add any air yet. For $5 is failing after a few years even a valid concern?:rolleyes:

    I spend a lot of time in Baja and my Spanish isn't good enough to explain what that pipe thing is. I got a nice little lady bug sticker from my grand daughter and fixed the problem... :D

    I removed the cluster and took a tiny piece of electrical tape and placed it under the thin plastic cover and over the hole where the light is,one piece up one piece down , this hides the light and is very easy to do , its reversable and you only have to peal the black cover back and remove the clear plastic shell, you can do it without removing the needles, just be carfull not to cover up part of your turn signal arrow, ask me how I know this, this whole operation only took about 15 minutes max ,the gauge cluster comes out very easy , I have done this on lots of vehicals in the past mostly the check engine light but also the tpms, the best part of this mod is that you cannot even tell there is any tape or any problem with the system , I don't need O'bama telling when I've got a flat!!
