Its a government mandated device. The dealers and tire shops don't want to mess with it for fear that they will be fined similarly to modifying emissions. As for doing it yourself, there isn't any way.
It was introduced on job2 2008 vehicles, there are a few job2 that don't have it, but the majority do.
Personal opinion, I still think it does more harm then good by not allowing it to be adjusted. A user puts on a different tire, say 50PSI instead of 65PSI and knowing that the TPMS is gonna flag an error they can become lax and start ignoring it. Then they could be driving around on an improperly inflated tire which could lead to an accident.
