Five minute job including walking to the garage in 20* weather for a red scotchlok and a pair of pliers. Just drop the glovebox, snip the pink, and scotchlok the harness end to the red. TPMS on my 2007 was sporadically lighting as one of the sensors was going.

Sorry to butt in, (I have a 4.4). Just wanted to make people aware that Radio Shack has closed a whole bunch of their retail stores. If you go to their web site, there is a place where you can search for a store location near you, and input a mile search radius. Luckily, there was one still in business located in the next city over. The current price for the 3.3k Ohm 1/4 Watt five-pack of resistors is $1.49, plus state sales tax.

I just used the resistor method and TPMS light is off. This is for a 2012 RAV4 4cyl 4WD. Just make sure to really wedge the resistor legs in the harness. I used the blue and pink wire. All good.

^^^^ solidfish - great thread BTW.

^^ My Canadian built 2008 RAV4 Limited / dealer maintained with 89,000 Km - did not have TPMS.
- I've been driving for over 4 decades & my eyes, spot check tire pressure every time I walk up to one of my vehicles...before I jump in & turn the key / my visual method has never let me down, but not for everyone. TPMS are an expense, I personally would sooner avoid.

We bought a winter wheel package for our sons new 2015 Lexus RX350 - TPMS at dealer was $55 each. But his 2008 Nissan Rogue had needed 2 TPMS - one defective one probably had a low battery & the other had a broken valve stem. Needed fixed & eliminate TPMS warning light, to help sell private - Nissan dealer wanted $155 each.
So my independent garage friend installed 2 universal TPMS, for $45 each on and reprogrammed them for free / good customer service.

Now for next summer, when the winter tires on 6 spoke OEM alloy rims come off.
- custom valve stems (without TPMS) and 2013 Highlander 17x7.5" alloy rims.
- on silver rims I want chrome valve stems / on black rims I want black rubber valve stems
- and no TPMS warning light, on the dash of our 2008 Limited / Canadian built

On nice rims, I like to run Truck 100 psi designed chrome valve stems, with stainless steel caps - originally made for 1 Ton Dually...I buy them at a full tire shop.




Universal TPMS - 1/3 the price, as Nissan dealer...installed on 7 year old Rogue SL.
- suspect internal battery went dead, on one / broken valve stem, in other


Expensive TPMS programmer, at garage.


Reprogram TPMS, plug & play method.


Reprogram original TPMS, scan tool method.
- as working TPMS valve stems left in rim, during tire change

TPMS Programming

Has anyone tried to find if itís possible to disable the TPMS "program" similar to how you would progam a key code? (ex. Insert key, open and close doors, jump on a chicken, deflate tire, lock doors, wait 40 days, then drink 5 shots of whiskey?)

Just came across my notes on this mod (from Oct 2011!). My '06 RAV4 connector has 16 pins with pin 2 having the blue wire and pin 6, the pink. If yours has a different number of pins I suggest having a more color discriminating person check it.
(From another post it seems later model RAV4s may have a 12-pin connector with the 3.3K 1/4W resistor needing to be between pins 5 & 6.)
