+No it shouldn't have any effect on the other systems.
I ran my '08 RAV4 through the winter with rims without sensors and the ABS and stability control worked just fine. Of course, I had to put some tape over the darn light until I put the factory wheels back on.+
But remember, if your state inspection is due over the summer, get the inspection done before changing to the non TPMS setup, because in NY state it is a safety violation to disable TPMS on cars that came with it from the factory. Some people who have summer (or winter) setups without TPMS get the inspection early that first year so that in following years it is due right before changing over to the non TPMS setup.
I found the same link while searching. I know the owner of a local repair shop and he'll tell me the straight story. I wouldn't put it past NY to have a "unique" law against tampering with TPMS or anything else. We can't pass a reasonable budget, but we sure can pass a lot of stupid laws. Thanks for the reply.I first looked into this question more than 3 years ago when I first got my 06 Rav. For the life of me I cannot remember where I read or heard it. There is a lot of info on the site below, but I couldn't find anything about inspection. It may have just been in a conversation with a repair shop. I decided against a winter/summer setup, so it was never an issue for me. Ask your repair shop about it. Maybe my memory is wrong, or maybe my repair shop was wrong.
