I've just checked what I've done to disable TPMS. Go to 65 Tire Pressure > Coding and disable the system. Nothing else, no error codes.

Awesome thank you. Will have my Indy try it for me, granted he will do it, on Thursday. Fingers crossed.

Default Unplugging the TPMS Module

The reason why I unplug the TPMS module, is different Gateway SW levels act differently to coding the 17 and 19 modules. So some earlier 2004 and 2005 D3s may work with just recoding, but I have had a few 2005 and 2006 vehicles that needed the TPMS module disconnected after I performed recoding.
This is a must for the VW Touareg too!

So try the recoding of 19 and 17 first and see what happens.

Default TPMS

This is correct. Some users have reported just pulling the fuse works (2004?). On my 2005 I had to remove from gateway and disable TPMS with long coding otherwise errors would show up. On others you may need to do more. Just work through it, try (1)disconnect fuse (2)remove from gateway (3)Re-code (4)disconnect.

I believe that the option to disable TPMS depends on the model year rather than MMI version. I don't believe TPMS was a legal requirement in 2004, so it can be turned off. It became a legal standard in later years, therefore can't be turned off via the MMI.
