Is there any way to cut off the low tire pressure sensors? I recently put on a new set of wheels and they do not have the sensors.

The stock valve stems will not work with my new wheels. I have a friend that works at a chevy dealership down 20 minutes away. I will give him a call and see if he can turn it off there.

That sucks, hopefully you can get your friend to turn it off.

I had my tires & rims replaced once and they forgot to put the sensors in so I had to go back. But until they fixed it, every time I got in the car the stupid sensor thing would come up on the screen. It was annoying as hell.

Hope there is a way to shut it off.

Talked to him yesterday and he said that it is impossible to shut off. There is nowhere on his programmer to change it. He said it is against federal law to shut them off if it was possible. I think that I can get a programmer to to do it though.

That sucks!

Now why is it that the stock sensors won't work with the new tires? Can you buy new sensors that would work?

That I can not answer but the wheel shop I buy from is a really good shop and sell a lot of wheels. IF he says they will not work I believe him. I will give him a call and ask because i would like to know also.

You would think they would work. The valve stems are the same for mounting on a rim, they just have the extra stuff below them. Maybe that rubs on the new rim?

I finally know why they will not work. I have 24's and the tire is a 275/30/24. It is such a low profile this is why it will not work. I am working on a solution on it as we speak.
