Durametric cannot do it yet, at least on my car. Durametric released an update (220.127.116.11) that was supposed to do the trick, but it did not work. The shop said that the software seemed to work and remove the TPMS
, but unfortunately, nothing on the dash changed.
According to some 997 owners who convinced the dealer to remove TPMS
, the module in the front trunk must be removed FIRST or else the coding will not work. The process with PIWIS
1. Disconnect the module in the front trunk (by the master cylinder).
2. Program away the TPMS
However, according to Durametric and the shop I used, the module must be there so that the software can communicate to remove the option. So their process is supposed to be:
1. Use Durametric Pro to do the coding change that removes TPMS
2. Remove the module.
That doesn't work. They said they also tried removing the module first with no success. The dealer service sucks, so I'm out of luck. Apparently Durametric cannot test this feature on a car, so they're relying on user logs to figure it out. I'm getting tired of going to the shop to try something new, which wastes both my time and the shop's time (they haven't charged me anything).

TPMS - The T
ystem provides early warning of any drop in pressure by continuously monitoring the pressure in each tire and alerting you in the onboard computer display in the event of a pressure deficiency. It communicates the exact pressure of each tire and/or their deviation from ideal pressure. This does away with the need for regular air pressure checks at the service station, which often prove highly inconvenient.
See the TPMS FAQ
for more info.
