    Swapped out tires and rims on 2007 Tacoma Access Cab.
    How would I go about eliminating Low Air Tire Presure "LIGHT"...?

    Don't want to spend over $200.00 on sensors and then take it to dealer to have it programmed every time I change rims..

    You can put electrical tape over the light for now.

    You could have swapped out the sensors into your new rims

    Take all the sensors and put them in your spare.

    I havent looked into this but I think the sensors just broadcast RF. If you could figure out what frequency the particular TMPS sensors are using, you could probably build a little something to fake it out.

    THANKS, FOR INFO..
    Got rid of all factory wheels including spare. I carry a tire plug kit and little air compressor in event of a flat.. Actually, I remove car jack and associated components from all my vehicles.. That's 60LBs less weight to carry around..

    Thanks again..

    My wife tried the 15 seconds thing and it didn't work for her. I'm going to play around with it when I get back to the truck- but I have my doubts.

    And to the OP- A patch kit/compressor is great- until you get a split in a tire insted of just a puncture hole. I ran over a razor blade on the interstate- The whole was 4 inches long- There is no saving/repairing that tire.

    If I recall correctly from my manual, which I just read for the first time(just got the truck), that reset button is only useful for programming "normal" tire pressure levels. Such as when you put on tires that have different PSI requirements. You would air the tires to their correct pressure and then turn your key on off on or something like that, then hold the button down... that process tells the computer to record the new "normal" PSI level.
