The FAQ states you can pull a fuse to disable TPMS. It will however disable the key FOB. No problem with that on HPDE days with track tires. I can't seem to find the "ARS?" fuse in any of the boxes. Anyone know what they are talking about.

FAQ QUOTE:

Alternative
The TPM can be ALSO disabled by disabling keyless entry also, if you're interested.
Pull the ARS fuse in one of the rear fuse centers (But then, you'll also disable the fobs and keyless entry)

Thanks dreamin

I could find nothing on this. I reviewed all the fuse listings for the engine and two rear fuse blocks and could not find anything labeled ARS nor anything that I could associate with TPMS or keyless entry.

Mike, I researched this a while back...just disabling it all together.

IIRC there is a silver/aluminium module up in the headliner near the rear dome light (RCDLR (remote control door lock receiver))...the guy went to swap his tan headliner with a grey one and he lost the key fob functions as well as the TPMS.
He couldn't figure it out until he asked for the box back from the guy he traded headliners with and it worked again. The box has 2 wires that clip on to the back glass and 2 antenna looking plugs on one side and a white wire harness clip on the other end that plugs in.

The 2 are related so you could pull the fuse, under the rear seats, or pull the plugs to the module and it should have the same effect...

The module has a 3 wire connection on the left side. The red/white wire is battery power from a "hot" at all times fuse that is in the left rear fuse panel (under the rear seat) labeled TRUNK DR RELEASE (10 Amp)

Try that one out...the key fobs won't work, the trunk won't release, and radio may get crappy reception BUT the TPMS should be off AND allow you into Comp mode or remove T/C altogether

;)

I should make a fakie module that sends out 4 TPMS frequencies and says alls well all the time so you can keep your radio and such. This method would require removing the sensors from the wheels though. Probably cost less than buying and replacing one sensor though... or a spare tire.

Thanks Chris
I saw the TRUNK DR RELEASE fuse in the box. I'll pull that one and see what happens. This way I won't have to lug my street wheels with me to the paddock if I trailer the car up there with the track wheels.

BTW this method works fine. It disables the entire key FOB though so it's only good for track days.

When you're quoting posts from 6-1/2 years ago, do yourself a favor and see if the person you're trying to ask the question to is even still here. Hover your mouse over their avatar and a box pops up that will show "Last seen: [date]" (along with various other info about them). For dmax/04v and DougNuts, it's 2016 and 2015.

How do you remove the sensors

How do you remove them
Dismount the tires, remove the TPMS sensors, install regular valve stems, remount and balance tires.

I apologize, I am on my phone not a computer and I did not realize it was that simple this is also the first Cadillac ive owned and I'm still new to all of this but thank you so much. And have a great day.
