Fooling TPMS?

Sesshomurai

Hi,
I use a 3rd party TPMS system that has a digital readout for all four tire pressures and temperatures. It's not compatible with the Boss' computer so I get an annoying tire pressure light. Is it possible to buy a compatible TPMS and just keep it in the glove compartment to make the light go out? lol ;D

unfortunately, the TPMS valvestems need kinetic energy to transmit the signal. so, you would need to place them in a pressurized vessel that stays in motion while the car is on. the guts are epoxied into the case, so you can't reasonably get to the battery(or possibly capacitor?) to bring power to it. if you could replicate the 4 signals each of the TPMS' give off when their PSI threshold is met, that would be the best solution. good luck!
