Unhappy Wiring Differences

I noticed from the first post that the wiring was for a 2009. I was all set to do a 'switched" mod on my 2006 RAV but the wiring was not quite the same.
Pink is in pin 4, not 5
Green is in pin 5
Red is in pin 6
Is the important wire the pink one?

As a stop-gap, I taped over the TPMS light.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!

The pink wire goes to the LED in the instrument cluster. The red wire should have +5 volts on it. You want to tie the pink wire to the 5 volt line.

Really dumb question.... What would be the reason for disabling the system? Sorry, this is the first car I have ever had with a tire monitoring system.

How did I ever drive the last 30 years without it??? Oh, that's right, I checked my tire pressures at regular intervals.

It's not a dumb question at all, Dean. For folks like us who live in the South, it doesn't seem to make sense to disable the TPMS. But up in the frozen Nawth, where you may have to switch to snow tires every Winter, the TPMS can be a real PITA! With 2 sets of tires and rims, only one set at a time can be programmed into the system. So while you're riding around on your Summer wheels, everything works fine. But when you change to your Winter wheels, you end up with an annoying TPMS light all the time.

Unless you are independently wealthy and can afford a second set of TPMS sensors for the second set of rims, so you wouldn't really notice any difference. So this is a short cut for us Po folks.

Yup, this is what I'll be doing come Nov-Dec or even earlier while the weather is still nice to play in the car with wiring....

This is great info. I've gotten along fine without tire pressure sensors for 44 years and it is great to see a way to work around this profit center add on. Thank You All!
