Okay, so we all know how annoying the highlander is with rotating your winter and summer tires cos it can only read 5 sensors at once, and thus it i will drive some crazy with that big annoying /!\ in the middle of your cluster....

This guys solution for the yaris might be similar, what do you guys think?

Not sure what year your Highlander is but I was told that the Highlander will hold 9 codes, similar to the Lexus. This was told to me by the Lexus service advisor who was located beside the Toyota service advisors. We did not talk a specific year so I assume he was talking about the '09. He said all you have to do is enter the 4 winter wheels into the program when they are initially installed and then do a reset when the wheels are switched in the Spring to identify the current serial numbers so it isn't trying to locate all 9 numbers at once. The Highlander service rep said that they had come out with a little sticker to put over the light if that was what was wanted. The probelm is that apparently if you have the Nav system, a warning keeps appearing on it, so the sticker won't help.

Folks, I am going to be beta testing a tool in a week or so that will allow owners to do their own tire swaps, rotations etc. I will be posting a complete review on TN in about a couple of weeks.

When you install winter tires/rims without TPMS sensors, what error messages, etc. do you get aside from the /!\ on the dash by the speedometer? Will there be a constant error on my MFD? I have no nav.

On the Highlander Sport 2008 you will only have the warning light. Nothing in the MFD. It better be.

When my windshield washer fluid is low, the MFD constantly annoy me with a warning and I can't see anything but that. I have to constantly push the button for the MFD on the steering to see anything.
