Post Tire Pressure Sensor Driving Me CRAZY!

I have 1 wheel without a tire pressure sensor, it makes my screen flash "service tire sensor", it drives me crazy, i dont need a sensor to tell me what my tire pressure is, im just fine without it, can the error code be deleted or can the "tire pressure" display be deleted completely at a dealership? also while im posting are there and chips or ecu's (whatever our cars have) that can remove the govenor and/or traction control?

I don't believe the code can be deleted.

There is no reason why you should remove the governor

If you have traction control i believe it can be switched off ( Im not sure...I don't have traction control)

I run no TPMS all winter long and I get the error message too - there is no way to clear it. It's not that big a deal.

As for the TCS, just disable it. Every time I start the car, I make it part of my process - clutch in, car in neutral, turn the key, kill the TCS / put the car in Competition Mode (depending on what I want to do).

And the governor? Why remove it? Your car can't go that much faster, anyway, and there's no need to be doing that on public roads. Don't give me the race track excuse, either, your car isn't capable of hitting V-Max on any race track straightaway on the continent.

We have no button. The only way to disable TC is to drive in L, or pull the e-brake up to the first notch. It sucks, with the e-brake up you have to deal with the warning chime every once in a while .

As for the governer, apparently it needs to be tuned out or whatnot. Personally the max I've gone is 100 anyway and I wouldnt recommend it, but its fun (on an empty highway behind a cop mind you), but yeah do what you want while not being a dumbass.

I dont know from experience but base model hits 115 then the governor restricts your power...

Sorry, didn't mean to be harsh, I'm just saying. It's not like us TC guys can hit max speed on any track either.

I didn't realize the 2.2 didn't have a TCS kill switch - I guess you'll have to do what Nitro said. I've never heard of a permanent TCS removal, but you could probably talk to Vince at Trifecta about it. I hate to say it, but I somehow doubt it's easily possible.

^ Agreed. Trifecta would probably be your best bet. As for the governer, it depends on the year, some can only hit 105, some 115+. I think top speed is either 120 or 140 from engine power anyway. The max I've gone is 100 and I don't ever get to those types of speeds anyway, only on empty highways really late at night maybe I'll be doing 80-90...

A TC is drag limited to 160, so do you guys really think the 2.2 can hit much higher than its governor? Seems kind of pointless to remove it.
