My low tire sensors are out and my low tire light keeps blinking. I have the right amount of air in the tires. Is there a way to turn the light off? It's to expensive to get new sensors. 2006 Toyota

Unfortunately you can't just turn off the light, you have to find the problem, but as you stated the sensors are out so that is most likely the cause. I got a complete set from an EBay listing for 70 bucks that were new take offs, so the sensors are getting cheaper, but the labor cost of putting them in is what is crazy.

Tennisshoes is correct, you can't just turn the light off.

The dealer won't. But if you know the right mechanic with the proper programmer it can be done.

Now your talking reprogramming the computer, that is a totally different story, and not legal in a lot of states if the vehicle is to be driven on the highways.

Not sure about being legal, would like to see an example of that one. I have a 2008 tundra and the dealer told me that since I was pulling a heavy 5th wheel I might have to run different tire pressures front and back so would trip a light so he turned the light off. Later the sensors were removed.

Thank y'all for your comments. It's just annoying see a blinking light when you know your tires are not low.
