    Hi All,

    Just changed the wheels on my 2004 E55 Estate to AMG Style III's. My other wheels (turbines) had TPMS fitted but I didn't swap them over when I changed the wheels, mainly because I think a couple of them were on their last legs (I think so anyway, as kept getting intermittent messages to say there was a problem, but all was ok). Anyway I didn't want to go to the extra cost of 4 new TPMS as already got new set of tyres and wheels!!! So is there a way of deactivating the system, to stop me getting constant messages telling me to visit the workshop!!?

    Thanks

    I believe they can be deactivated on Star.
    Have you a local indi who can do this for you?

    Don't know an indi that has star. There is a guy I know, who does service Mercs but he has another system, not sure what it is though.

    So no way of doing it myself then?

    Alfie / Richard from Comand.co.uk in Woking, Surrey can do it for you.

    Great - woking close to me too, will give him a call.

    I just thought I was missing something in the settings menu and could turn it off myself, but obviously not from what you all have said.
