Last year the TPMS light came on in my 07 Maxima, this year my09 Murano TPMS light just came on. I check the pressure weekly in the winter, not sure I want to pay all that money for repairs. The battery should be replaceable

Well, batteries in anything are technically replaceable if you're good enough to dismantle the device, find batteries of matching size, voltage and capacity, solder them into the circuit, then re-assemble the unit.

It's just that some devices are designed for to make this process part of normal maintenance, some are not.

This is my fix for both cars. Been driving 45 years without tpms, a few more won't matter

I just had to have a sensor on my Titan done today. Battery isn't servicable so it cost me about $200. Light is gone! They did try just resetting it and a few miles down the road it came back on so....replacement was the only cure.

A discussion like this, I assume TPMS couldn't be disabled or by-passed. Will it fail car inspection if the light is on?

I assume TPMS was a federal safety requirement for manufacturers and not part of a state inspection but I could be wrong...

Dealer told me that, although he believes they may have the actual ability, no dealer would be allowed to bypass the system for legal reasons.

Yup. Never ever will a dealer defeat safety equipment. it's a multi-million dollar lawsuit on countdown.

Off topic, I saw once where someone had aftermarket wheels on and no TPMS sensor. Instead they drilled and installed all the sensors into the spare tire in the trunk to keep the warning light off lol.

If your goal is to keep light off (either for aesthetic reasons or other inspection reasons), then this is an option...of sorts. However, my real reason for not installing on working rims would be the cost of replacing when the batteries dies as these units have no replaceable batteries, right? At more than $200 a set, would be happy to forget about something I never really use.

That is awesome. I would use this method. why drilling is needed. I was thinking of using Velcro.

Because you have to install them into the rim to get a reading.
