    Damn man ...... [​IMG] .... the best I could figure out what you are asking is if your spare also has a sensor. The answer is yes.

    If the sensor is bad the TPMS light will blink. If a tire is low, it will stay on solid.

    My 2010 does not have a TPMS sensor in the spare. It's on the site somewhere, but I think they stopped this year.

    I'll have to check mine. I just traded in an '06 (which had one) for a '10. That'll give me something to do tomorrow.

    I'm glad I followed this thread, I was worried about having my ECU reprogrammed with the new TPMS codes when I switched out my original steel wheels with TPMS for a set of OEM Alloys with the different angle TPMS from another guy's TRD. I was worried that the dealer might just overwrite the first 4 codes he came to with the new codes, leaving me with a 1 in 5 chance of having him hit the spare tire code and leaving me with the stupid dash light on forever.

    So this morning I lowered the spare and confirmed that it does not have a TPMS valve stem in it. Saves me from playing TPMS roulette at the dealer when I finally get sick and tired of the light and take it in for a $50 reprogram job.

    Probably already saw an answer to this, but, the short answer is steel wheel sensors have a different angle on the surface that mates to the wheel than do the ones for alloy wheels. If you've ever looked at the internal surface of a steel wheel vs an allow wheel at the point of the valve stem hole you will easily see the difference.

    That said, I know some tire change places that claim to have made them work with a liberal application of silicon sealant. I have no doubt that could be made to work, but I chose not to try it. The OEM alloys I bought from a guy who lifted his Tacoma and went aftermarket wheels included the proper TPMS. All I have to do is schedule an appointment with the dealer to replace the steel wheel TPMS ID's with the alloy ID's that are now mounted. Unfortunately my local dealer wants $50 to do this and that just feels like exploitation to me.

    I'm driving and ignoring the light now during my cooling off period. I have a free maintenance coming up, and I might cave in and have it done then.

    The service manager had the balls to warn me that I am driving a potentially unsafe vehicle and that I should walk around my truck every morning to ensure my tire pressure looks ok before driving. He told me I was on my own for monitoring my tire pressure now. I said, ok, kind of like the last 41 years of my driving career.
