TPMS -- Tire Pressure Monitoring System

So the 09s have the TPMS sensors on the rims & i have swapped wheels with another ram owner on here. Only problem is, the older rams don't have this system. Anyone know how to turn it off?? lol

Can you take the TPMS out of the factory rims and install on the old ones?

Transfer the pressure monitors to the new wheels.
I'm not sure if you can defeat the TPMS since its a federally required thing. Like airbags or cat converters.

Pull the fuse?

Doh...haven't been on for a couple days. Disregard my PM LaidNeon. Those are what I paid about $30 a wheel for to make the dinging and light go away. The owner's maunual says it'll damage the computer if you run it without the sensors in the wheels. Don't know enough to know this isn't true. I was told you cannot turn the system off and that the sensors ARE different for the 09's. (saw some good deals on e-bay for other Chrysler sensors and was looking to save a little $.)

2008 Ram's could be transferred to other factory or aftermarket wheels. It should be able to be done.

Calibration? What calibration? You either have enough tire pressure or you don't and you get the warning.

What im trying to ask is; if I install new sensors, is there a procedure I need to follow so that the system can pick up the signal?? Or will its just leanrn it on its own?? That's what I ment by saying calibrate

LaidNeon....I was just being sarcastic. I read (I think on another thread) someone comment that they are hard to calibrate. DISCLAIMER: I am in no way an expert in this area and would be happy if proven wrong by someone more knowledgable in this area.

I have an 06 SRT8 Charger. That system monitors the pressure and displays all four tire pressures in the display. The Ram's system doesn't give you a current numerical pressure reading, I believe it'll just be the warning your getting now if pressure drops to a critical point.

The way I understand you don't have to calibrate them, especially if your getting the ones out of your old tires. I got the extra set of four (for the 09 Ram) for my winter wheels and tires and have had no warning lamps or audible alerts since the install.

No worries man. I just hope you get your wheels fixed.

BTW...I was at the dealer today dropping off the Charger for service and saw your colored truck in a Sport pull up. Very nice paint job.

How do these work exactly? Is there a battery and transmitter in the valves? If so, how long is the battery life?

the only time where they need to be reprogrammed is if you are replacing sensors. it has to be done with the starscan tool, and they are not interchangeable for some years. but i have seen them on aftermarket wheels depending on wheel type.
