    *Probably* could with a Tech-II.
    I wouldn't expect a dealer to do it though.

    One would wonder why you would want to do so.

    A dealer won't as it's a government mandated safety feature.

    If you know a tech that is willing to do it under the table you might have some luck.

    It can be turned off. Find someone to do it though.

    Re: Disable TPMS?

    The fact that I got Cadillac with wheels from a newer model and the sensors are not suitable to the system and I do not want to spend now 250 ~ 300 bucks for four new sensors

    It seems like the cheap turns out expensive.

    What caddy are the new wheels from?
    Year? Model? Package?
    I was able to swap the wheels from 2004 SRX to 2006 SRX. TPMS works properly on both cars.

    It can't be turned off. Once the option for tpms is set in the module it can't be changed. You could try getting another bcm and programming it without tpms if it allows you to select options. Do not buy aftermarket sensors either. Seen to many fail.

    Re: Disable TPMS?

    'Can't' is probably the wrong word. With enough effort and money, most things can be accomplished.

    My advice is to fix it. If you didn't save your sensors, most members report the aftermarket sensors last at least half as long as GM's. My OEM experience is > 8 years, since I've only replaced 1/8. That puts aftermarket life > 4 years.

    YMMV

    ----------

    If $200 for 4 sensors installed ($140 parts & $60 labor) hurts your budget, you may have bought the wrong car.

    Re: Disable TPMS?

    The export TPMS system is very different from the domestic. It involves four receivers instead of one and the sensors are different as well.

    My apologies. I didn't notice the location.

    Good luck!

    Re: Disable TPMS?

    I get it. I just need to order the sensors by VIN code and forget about this problem.
    Thank you all for your advice, I think the topic can be closed.


    P.S. My location is a big problem. In Israel, the parts for Cadillac cost like parts for Boeing, but I still love the Cadillac.

    I said it "can't" be turned off with his current module. Don't matter how much money you got, module is burned already to have tpms and can't be changed. Anyway....

    What if he negotiates a deal with DDalder?

    A good opening offer might be, "They tell me this isn't possible..."

    Just a jest: no offense intended.

    Re: Disable TPMS?

    Today changed the sensors and it worked. The problem is that the wheels were from the export model with TPMS UH3 and my Caddy bought in the U.S. "domestic" model with TPMS UJ6. Already changed tires. Tires in Israel from the heat dries and cracks in 3-4 years. Total paid about $ 1000 ... not so few.
