I just got this 08 and found out you have to have a tool to reset the pressure sensors. Where can I get one of these an how much do they cost? Also they said I am supposed to run max psi 80psi in the rear and I normally only do that when I tow heavy I generally keep them about 55-60 so if I do this willi get the light even if I reset the sensors?

H&S offers one but you need to have a programmer, minimax or black max to use it.

Exactly what I want to do I have never had tire pressure sensors before and don't need them now. I could only imagine some of these people who need all the idiot lights to drive back in the 40's 50's an 60's they would be screwed.

you need to buy an h&S tuner(black maxx, mini maxx, or xrt pro) and then you can buy the tire pressure sensor module from h&s which will allow you to adjust it or turn it off. i just turned mine all the way off so that i didnt have to put sensors in my aftermarket rims.
here is a link to the tire pressure thingy

or you can borrow one from someone, beings that your in OHIO, and so am i. I happen to have one you could borrow if you want. if ya get it tuned and your close we could meet up and do it or we could work out shipping or something.

I think the light is stupid but i do see that if you keep the tire pressure up ya get better gas mileage but some people really need that to tell them their tire is low. i think there should be more than one driving class at 16, ive seen people all ages that i cant believe are allowed to drive :rofl:

Yea I think it is a law but still if you cant check those simple things you shouldn't be driving and also I agree with the more than one driving class. I saw a driving instructor the other day in the left lane not passing anyone just ridding the same speed as the poke in the right lane so no one can get by so some of it could be the course curriculum

i dont think you can do it with sct or spartan if i remember correctly. i thought h&s was the only one that had that option but i could very well be wrong.

But what if your losing air while driving 70 down the freeway? By the time you realize it, it could be too late and an accident could potentially happen.
