disable TPMS


Recommended Posts

Hi. In my V.W. CC 2009. The T.P.M.S system has an error and the light on dash comes on and it keeps coming up and flashing then solid.

Did a scan and it says communications error.


Checking online seems my batteries in the sensors inside the wheels have gone flat. Sensors need to be replaced.

I want to disable the T.P.M.S system until I can get new sensors..They are expensive.

In vag-com it is a simple matter of un-ticking a check box for T.P.M.S system.

In carport there is no such thing and I will need to change the coding for the T.P.M.S  ..

But I can find no info anywhere as to where to get this info.

Any help would be appreciated.

OK I think I figured it out.

Do a full scan...

goto gateway...

select installed tab.

scroll down to find tpms.

(in mine there were 2 tpms systems...tpms 2 and tpms1

I believe they are the passive tpms 2 system using the abs

and the active system using sensors in the wheels.

I have the second one tpms 1 with sensors in the wheels.)

uncheck the check box for the tpms system you have.

then hit save

All done tpms is now removed.


Once I get the new sensors I will re-enable it.

Is good to turn off the light and disable the message etc, till you get it fixed.
