Exclamation TPMS Issue
2016 Ram 2500
Added new Toyo A/T tires that use 65psi, not 80psi like the stock tires do (crazy). Ofcourse light comes on, and blinking tire pressure on the EVIC. I want this to go away. I've got some friends looking into removing this 'default' tpms annoyance, but if anyone has a programmer, or autel906 in the HOUSTON TEXAS area, and you can turn off the light/blinking/annoyance, I'll gladly pay $. Any help is appreciated.

I tried everything on my mega... ended up just putting on tires that go to 80psi. There is no sure fire way to make it go away. I tried the computer fix with a buddy of mine who can get the key from ram. Within 24 hours the light was back.
I just went from a 35/12.5/20 to 295/60/20.

Yep Dodge has made it so you cannot tweak the settings. Vehicles built before 2016 can have the parameters changed, but after that the Dodge Techs. can't even go in & change them.
Might be able to hire the "Russian Hackers".

That's the new rumor... if it works, I'm all for it. But I'm not spending $1300 to fix a light. Lol

No they didn't. FCA decided they didn't want thresholds changed. I can change the thresholds in my wife's car.

I got mine adjusted for the new tires.

I hope you are not running 65 PSI tires at 80PSI!!!!


I know a few people that can adjust it here in Arizona. You'll have to find a person in your area. Find a Dodge Forum on Facebook for your area and find the guy with the right tool.
