Any new word on hacking the TPMS?

Anyone?

I know that someone has been able to hack this system..

I thought that Spartan, H&S, or ID would have been able to do this by now.

What is the hold up?

I know I have a buddy working on a few things with the DD but not sure if that is on his list.

What if we ALL started calling Ford and writing letters, going to dealerships, etc then maybe this might have an impact.

We don't want to DO AWAY with it, just lower the PSI to reasonable means for a slightly improved ride.

There is no reason to run around with the kinds of PSI in these tires they are running.

Just causes premature tire wear and other truck/personal issues potentially.

Spartan can do it, it's just illegal and they won't sell it (similar to DPF deletes, but that's why they make us sign a waiver for off road use only). It's not a matter of Ford not wanting to help us out, it's a Federal law. I'd love to just be able to get rid of it too, but it looks like they may have outsmarted us.

So then why won't Spartan release it?

It is not technically illegal to lower tire pressure in a vehicle. The sensors say it is but if they can release via waiver the ability to delete the dpf and cat then why not via waiver release the TPMS fix?

Makes no sense.

Hard to say. Somebody from Spartan may chime in. My only problem is that I currently don't have sensors in because the guy that had the wheels before me took the bands out.

I would like someone from Spartan to chime in on this, because if this is something they offer then I will buy their product. I want to able to address this and I know others are working on it but we need to get this fixed now and I am not the only one that wants this.

Due to the fiasco with the Explorer/Firestone several years ago. I don't see them backing down.

It was that fiasco that brought about the whole Gov Mandated TPMS in the first place. Our only hope is a 3rd party.

Well it would be nice if someone from Spartan would chime in here.

I have read a few other threads that is can be done. Just need to figure it out.

It doesn't have a fuse just for the TPMS light.
