Thumbs up TPMS Sensor's Bypassed!!!

Hey, I got my light off in my 08 f250 lariat 4x4 today... Finally!!! I was on here a few months ago asking questions and people replied that it wasnt possible(I have the band style sensors). I mentioned an idea I had that I thought might work (turns out was already tried, but not correctly I guess) and they still said no. My idea was to get a piece of PVC pipe around 3" diameter to place the sensors in and some end caps to seal it up with (using PVC cement). Then getting an air stem and drilling a hole just big enough to screw it in (with epoxy to seal it). I finally said F@#* it and made one anyways just to see. Once it was made I gave it overnight to harden before airing up.The next day I aired it up to the appropriate pressure for the sensors then checking for leaks. I drove it over to Discount Tire, they put my truck in learning mode and then reset my four sensors and it instantly turned my light off. (They wont charge you to reset them)
I then put my contraption behind the rear seat and i've been driving with no light on all day so far and it hasnt came on yet. My buddy that worked there said there was a myth going around that you couldnt get rid of the code this way because the sensors had to be rotating to activate then the computor reads them kinda like there in a sleep mode, to prevent the internal batteries from dying to early. To all the naysayers...Well that was B.S. Im telling you its worth the $15-$20 bucks in materials and too easy to make. Good luck

The light will come back on when the computer realizes the sensors are not in motion. It can tell these things. Just give it time.

Can you reset these sensors yourself? Or put into learning mode? I got new sensors and my lights on?
