TPMS Receiver Location

I have a 2008 Trail Teams FJ Cruiser with a problem with the TPMS system - the light blinks about 10 times at startup then stays solid after replacing the wheels. I've looked at the other posts about how to disable the system and replace senders. I have one last thing to check - the pressure of the spare tire which I am just about to go verify / top up.

If that fails, I'd like to take a look at the receiver unit itself for full due diligence. Does anyone know where this unit is located?

Thanks

Matt

Check spare.

If that doesn't work, can disable the dash light by grounding wires under the DS glove box.

Re: TPMS Receiver Location

Yes thanks, I read that and may end up doing it anyway. But I would like to know where the module is - does anyone know?

Re: TPMS Receiver Location

You said you replaced the wheels, did put the old sensors in the new wheels.

Re: TPMS Receiver Location

I did not, hence why I now think that this is the problem.

My next thought is, would it would be significantly easier to swap the receiver units between the two cars that to have the senders changed?

Re: TPMS Receiver Location

Correct, that is the problem. 2 things you can do;
1) put the old valves in a sealed pvc pipe and pressurize it to normal tire pressure and then put it in the truck. This will bypass the system and makes the light go out. It will not let you know if you have a low tire.
2) take it to the dealer and have the new ones read in to the truck.

Re: TPMS Receiver Location

I connected the 2 wires in the dash and that works great.

Please excuse spelling and grammatical errors - I am just illiterate

Re: TPMS Receiver Location

Off topic, but whenever I see TPMS I always think "toilet paper management system"
