^^ My Canadian built 2008 RAV4 Limited / dealer maintained with 89,000 Km - did not have TPMS.I've read a few posts here about canadian models not having TPMS. I'd like to squash that rumor right now. My 08 Sport V6 has TPMS. So does my ex's '11 base I4.
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.Can you post a picture, I can't find a pink wire ( have 2012 v6 base)
blue is in a corner ( I think, I am a little color-blind)
4.2 has no sensors in the wheels, it uses the ABS system . There is a special initiation procedure to set the TPMS.. It should be in your owners manual.Anyone tried the resistor method on a 4.2 (2004) Rav4? I've adjusted the pressure on all tires but the light stays on constantly. I'm assuming the sensors are shot.
My dash looked like a Christmas tree when I bought the car with the VSC, TPMS and Check Engine lights all going. Check Engine is due to bad exhaust/cat converter/oxygen sensor which is getting replaced soon. VSC Trac light has yet to be determined. Would be nice to get the TPMS disabled so at least one light taken care of right away!
The TPMS was mandated for all cars in the US, but NOT in Canada. Therefore, the only RAV4 that came with TPMS in Canada was the Sport Appearance Package with no spare tire on the back.Hello all,
I just got my 2012 Rav4 Limited V6 (here in Vancouver, Canada). I am getting a second set of tires, but I too don't want to pay for over-priced TPMS system. I tried lowering my spare tire pressure to 16psi today, and the TPMS light didn't light up. I also looked behind the glove box, and I couldn't find the TPMS module you guys all have in the photos... However, I do have one extra module. Could you please look at the pictures I took and just confirm that my car doesn't have TPMS equipped? Kaltire looked at my tires and said they have TPMS valve stems, and therefore I need to pay $500 extra to get a second set of TPMS valve stems... I told them I don't need those stupid things and they refused to work on my tires for "safety concerns".
