Deactivating the TPMS?

Is there a way to deactivate your TPMS and shut the light off? My sensors are gone with my factory tires and I don't really want to spend the $400 on new ones, but I'm getting rid of my truck and kinda need them (people don't really like dash lights) so I was just wondering if i had another option other then buy new ones,
thanks

You could probably buy used sensors. I'm not sure what needs to be done to program them, if anything. If used sensors won't work then your only option is to buy new sensors, or take out the cluster bulb. You can usually get the sensors cheapest from a tire shop.

Should be able to get it all done for $75ish plus the cradles/clips if the Kijiji guy doesn't have them.

I may be wrong, but isn't it an LED that lights it up?

TPMS is a challenge for everyone right now, including the tuner guys. Its going to take a bit of learning before we beat it, until then you need to deal with this.
