So finally had some time yesterday to attempt this mod for the 07+ GX. Worked just as described. Thank you, burtoncr!

Just a note to help clarify things for others:
1. My 07 has the blue TPM box
2. Disconnect harness from blue box then cut the BLUE wire.
3. Strip some insulation away from the GREEN/RED wire and tap it to the BLUE wire going to the dash. (Note: make sure you don't tap the green/black wire right next to it)
4. Reconnect wire harness to Blue TPM box
5. Done!

I just did this on my 2007 and it worked! Make sure you connect to the green and red one and not the green and black one.

Has anyone gotten error codes or pending codes from disabling your tpms module? Iím curious cuz the ECU must see this as a malfunction with the module.

I don't think this module is tied into the ecu for anything. I've had the mod done for 3.5 years with no ill effects.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I did the mod several months ago and no issues so far. I was just curious

Have an '07 Nav like you. Did exactly as noted above. TPMS light is out - yay!
BUT....The three VSC related lights are all on now. Anybody else experience this?
Yes, I did connect Blue to Green/Red. Let me ask this - what # position in the plug is your green/red in?
