Anyone have an 06 (other years may work..) wiring diagram? I want to determine if the TPS idiot light has its own power lead for the bulb. And if so, where do I cut to disable this light?

Thx!

Tire Pressure Monitoring System.. sorry. There are a rash of over-used acronyms. Eg., VDC (as in TCS) and VDC (as in vertical doors)...

But ya.. I want to rid myself of the TPMS idiot light (Low Tire Pressure Warning Light) inside the combination meter, below the fuel gauge. From the service manuals I have seen they treat the combination meter as a single unit. And there is no disassembly procedure.

I just need to know if there is either a wire to be cut outside of the combo-meter (eg a 12v lead for the Low Tire Pressure bulb) or if the combo-meter is entirely on a circuit board, then how to get to it so I can remove/disable that bulb.

So far, using a Consult II, we have gotten the computer to ignore the absence of TPMS sensors such that there is no chime, and the Multi Display does not revert to the TPMS data window. But the Low Pressure Warning Light on the dash is on from the moment the key is turned. I want to get rid of it. :)

Thx

That's right.. I don't want to use the sensors in my new wheels. I check the pressures myself once a week if not every other day anyway.

Ya... Cars I've owned in the past with this system were inaccurate anyway (+/- 5 psi), so I learned to ignore them. The Z's is supposed to be better but it's a non-issue for me delete it.

Do you have a solution? Or were you just curious about the topic?

Thx

True.. but it's still just a light, right? That means the light comes from something.. a bulb or an LED. I don't have to worry about opening control modules if I can get inside and simply remove the bulb.

KarlH... you sound like you know what is involved to disassemble the instrument cluster (combination meter).... If I had that procedure I could probably determine from the diagrams if this is what I need to do. Do you think maybe I could get that from you?

Unfortunately the shop/service manual does not have any such procedure. But it sounds like you've gone inside the meter before. Any help is much appreciated.

Thx

I'm figuring this may be the case. The lead tech at my dealer said he's blacked a few out, basically with a fine no-gloss marker and a steady hand. Sounds good enuf for me.

Too bad the TCS lights are tied into the low-brake fluid warning or I'd have him black those out too. :)

Pilot.. ya I think I've given up on trying to get inside the thing. Probably a bunch of washers and springs will fly out all over the place if you open the case to the combo meter. :p

Thx yall
