You cant unless you have a tech II. You have to find a dealer that will do it for you and good luck with that.

I have the same issue with my truck and have been fighting it all winter. I'm drinkin buds with my diesel tech and service manager so usually they treat me right. They told me that the system is progrmmed at the factory based on the stock tires (whatever it is on the sticker inside the door panel) and cannot be changed or disabled. :-(

There has to be some way to re-program it to accept a lower pressure, though. If someone figures this one out, please let me know.

Basically, this system is a total PIA!!

tire monitor

Well I called my dealer and asked if they could lower my pressures on my tpms and they said yes. They did it and didn't even charge me I'm guessing because I had my wife take it in and they like staring at her nice boobs lol. So far I have removed my dpf and put dual exhaust now its like we have a new pickup.

I called everywhere and only one dealer would do it. If anyone is in the Denver area Medved autoplex will do it.

I have done it a couple ways but right now I have tpms on my truck.
The truck can be programmed for lower pressure with aftermarket wheels no troubles.

On my last truck we took the TPMS and put them in the spare tire then aired it up it worked and never bothered me, just toss them inside the spare and go.

What pressure does it alarm at? I just pressured my 35" toyos to 60 psi to get it to clear but it drops to 58-60 when cold and no alarm. Truck rides alot rougher now though. Not sure whats worse, staring at the light or a little rougher ride.

Mine use to come on at 57psi. You should set the pressure at the proper psi for your tire and not over inflate because of the stupid TPMS. It will make them wear incorretly, and like you said a bad ride. Find a dealer that will recalibrate the TPMS.
