Looking to disable my TPMS (2007 RAV4 Sport) using the 'resistor method'. Dropped the glove compartment and found what I thought was the TPMS ECU (plug has the requisite pink and blue wires) however stamped into the end is "ABS" (see photo). Is this the right one?

If it's the right one disconnecting it will give a TPMS light on the dash.

It's the pedal (or the handgrip) on the right!!

that part got me nervous. Dont remember an ABS on it but it was the box right about the middle, there were boxes on the sides...ended up googleing 2009,2011(twins) tpms ecu and from the images I felt reasonable safe and just went for it.

Yes, a lot of plastic Toyota parts are stamped ABS for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene. Has to do with recycling plastic, not brakes.
