Got some winter rims and tires, the TPMS are like $50 each.

If I just have regular valve stems put in, can I turn off the TPMS sensor on the car or will I ALWAYS have the yellow light?!

You can try pulling the TPMS fuse to see if they light will go away. I run my Lexus on steel rims and snow tires in the winter. The TPMS light comes on but I don't mind it that much. I plan to do the same with my Odyssey.

I had the EXACT same situation in 2007.

Installed TPMS in the Winter Tires, but later found out I need to go to dealer to reset the stupid TPMS light in the dash. They want $80-100 to reset the stupid thing so I skip it.

So I have TPMS in the winter tires but not used at all.

The bottom line:

- Cover the light with a black electrical tape. Cut a square piece and cover only that TPMS light

- In the Spring, when you re-install your summer tires, The TPMS light will turn off after a short drive when the computer re-recognizes the summer wheels with TPMS in there.

Good Luck and have fun!

I addressed all those issues in the links below.

When putting a set of snows on an extra set of alloys for my wife's 09 CRV, I left the TPMS sensors off. The yellow light is on but is now covered with a sheet of screen protector with black tape on it. This way the cover is easily take off with no adhesive residue.

I can not believe that Honda only allows 4 TPMS sensors to be stored and any time, gets expensive if you use snow tires and want this function.
