Need to replace sensors on a 2008. Looking at $284+ from tirerack or a little less on Ebay.

I would rather spend $350 on a VCDS but cannot find any info that says I can 100% turn off that damn yellow light.

Can anyone confirm that VCDS can 100% turn off the yellow TPMS warning light on a 2008?


Thanks,
Neil

I have turned the TPMS light off on the dash in my 2008 Passat with my VCDS cable from Ross-Tech
For my Passat it was
19-CAN Gateway
Installation List
65 Tire Pressure

I unchecked the box and the yellow light is off during the winter when I run my snows that don't have sensors installed.

I have not done this on a 2008 Touareg but maybe Ross-Tech can tell you if it is possible?

YES!

I have an 08 V8 gas engine and I can go into VCDS and set it so I can turn TPMS ON/OFF via the MFD.

Regardless, you'll love what you can do with VCDS for other things, too.

I just picked up some off road (17") rims and they don't have the sensors, so when I'm running those, I'll just turn off the TPMS and check my tires the "old-fashioned" way. :- )
