Tire Pressure Monitors

When you rotate the tires and wheels on your compass, isn't necessary to have the sending units re-set for the tire pressure monitoring? I know on a corvette you can't take remove the rear or front wheels and change sides of the car with them for that reason?

Should be ok. I saw my dealer rotate the tires on mine to isolate a road noise. Did nothing else and not issues with the TPMS indications.

Old-ish thread but...here's my scenario:

So, I've completed the infamous 2" Lift Kit by RRO and installed by aftermarket 17" rims for my 2014 Jeep Compass Limited with Cooper Discoverer 245/65/R17 tires.

Love it!

So I take my Jeep out for a drive to make sure there is no wobble. No, issues after I adjust the Upper Control Arms!

SWEET!!

Oh wait?! Am I out of gas??! NOPE! I got a flat?! NOPE! The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TMPS) is indicating there is an error in the system! Additionally, none of the tires are displaying their PSI and the dash cluster is displaying this symbol...

(!)

Oh...great...the 2014 Jeep Compass stock tires come with those special "TPMS Valve Stems".
F-That! I'm not deflating my stock rims in order to pull out those valve stems! Do you know how much WORK went into making sure the lift kit and tires look good?! There's no way I want to spend more time fixing the valve stems!
Can't I just throw money at tit and make this all go away?

Ok...maybe I can.

So, does anyone know of a way to delete/disable the TPM System?

NOTE:
Apparently I need the stock tires to pass a re-registration inspection as the Aftermarket tires will fail since they stick out passed the fenders...and need to re-enable the TPM System for US import in a few years...but out here where I am currently at TPMS is not a requirement for registration.

TIA

Electrical tape over the light or ignore it. I have TPMS but with out pressure displayed. Only a symbol pops up if a tire gets low.

I am surprised you weren't aware of it. Its a common consideration when getting winter tires on steelies to equip them or not for the winter.

Yeah...this is my first vehicle newer than 2002. So, I haven't come across this issue before. Also, sadly, electrical tape will not work for me since every time I start up I get the chime, indicator light, AND 8-bit diagram indicator notification (despite what menu setting it was set to before vehicle shut off).

The tire shop should have asked you if you wanted the sensors as well. Oh well there isn't any other solution but sensors have to be the right type to match your vehicle system.

the sensors can be adjusted to read the tire presser of the new tires there is a tool almost any shop that dose tires can use to redo them it takes like 10 mins they did them on my 17" (stock) 235/75/17 khumo a/t2 tires

ok didn't know that. I asked the dealer once after getting mine and after looking up my Vin number said I had a specific sensor which would match if I changed rims. I guess this is the keep the TPMS systems sane when drive amongst other vehicles so equipped and not pickup their signals as well.
