You can't disable the TPMS.

That would be like disabling airbags or seatbelts. All are federally mandated safety devices that are illegal to defeat. You're just going to have to live with the light or put a piece of tape over it.

I have a 2010 SEL, found some 2013 Edge Sport 22" wheels/tires, different sensors on '13 than '10 and not compatible .

After looking for months, finally figured out how to get sensors that work.

I bought Schrader E-Z sensors on E-bay, installed them in the tires (stem mounted, OEM are banded) and had the sensors "Cloned". Now the car can't tell what set of tires/wheels are on it.

The E-Z sensor is not a drone, but a blank, must be programed before it reads (like a blank CD).

A set of 4 was $130

Finding the right place to program them was a trick, but worth it, now no light and no need to program sensors when switching from summer to winter tires !!

Mine used the 33000 sensor, can check on Schrader website for correct part for your car.
