    Ok, Here is the deal. I just picked up this truck and it has tundra wheels on it w/o the tire pressure sensors and the light keeps flashing, is there a way to disable it ?? Without tearing the dash apart?? What shold I expect to pay for 4 used sensors, will I be able to find any???

    Thanks for all the help on a great fourm you guys have here...I am learning allot.

    Ok...Before I get into too much trouble, I did a search and unpluged the TPMS ECU but the light is now solid on, will it take a few key cycles for it go out???

    Thanks again

    I have the same problem, light flashed for about a minute and then stayed on. Do I just inflate the tires and then reset the sensor?

    Flashing means there is at least one broken sensor. You would need to get it diagnosed (only way I know to do that is go to the dealer) and then repaired.
