    Does the light go one just for under inflation? Or, will it go off for over inflation as well??

    pretty sure its just for underinflation. remember that the spare has a sensor in it too...............that may be your problem.

    Ambiguous statements like your first post don't help anyone help you...Other than you have a tacoma and a TMPS light-I don't know what you need.

    So in the interest of trouble shooting:
    What is "driving you crazy" about it?? If you took the sensors out- Do the PVC pipe set up like phantom said. If they are still in the tires- It means you need to a) re-inflate one or more of the tires or b) reset the TMPS system to recognize the new pressure you are using.

    For re-inflating- Get your gauge out and go to town- Be sure to check the spare (as we mentioned already).
    If you are running non-OEM tires that require different pressures than the ones posted on the doors- you'll need to re-calibrate your TPMS to that new pressure- The owners manual can walk you thru that.
