Recode the instrument cluster to delete it.

Don't know why I never thought of this before.

Did it the other day on a guy's Eurovan.

You can also turn off the low washer fluid warning, say if you have bad wiring or a bad sensor there at the washer bottle. Or if you just don't like the light coming on, ever.

Works like a charm...

Annoying brake-wear sensor. How is this sensor annoying??
Its annoying when you've got aftermarket pads without the sensors installed, the wiring is bad on the new pads or somewhere on the car, or the sensor gets worn into way too early like they all do and you have to either change the pads or stare at the light for 10k miles.

As for turning off the beep, nope, its all or nothing.

What are you on about here?
Is your O2 sensor throwing a cel?
Or is your cat "Missing" :nervous:

Good job we don't have those emmison checks down there eh?

Only the front pads, and I simply cut the wires off at the pad and put them in a crimp connector with a bit of RTV sealant on the end of it to prevent corrosion. But Sharky's way is less mess and less work.

Ok, so what's the block number?

I'm not too worried about emissions inspections anyway. Around here, it was quite possibly the most corrupt system ever put in place. for an extra 5 or even 10 dollars, the dude giving the inspection would mistakenly position the probe outside of the exhaust outlet to get more desirable values. you will miraculously pass inspection all the time like that.

i just want to be able to solve the problem of a high flow cat (or no cat), and not have a CEL staring at me all day long.

ideally, i wouldn't want to disable it; i'd like to just modify the values written into the ECU that trip the light.

this way, we can still have a functioning O2 system, and a functioning diagnostic for it. so if there IS a problem, you'd still get a light and you can diagnose it to see what's wrong.

it'd just be set up so you can modify the values per your spec.

Make sense, or am I totally cracked out?
