Dealer has to do it, I searched myself for my 2010. It was like $75 at my local dealer.

Rolleyes figures ! Did you have them roll down the idle a bit or are you good with it?

RE: Dark Mode 2011 P7B
Another question ..... I will be mounting up set of winter tires that don't have TPM sensors, can the feature be disabled or am I looking at the tire pressure warning for the duration ?

I left the idle alone. I'm not sure on the tpms. When the dealer accesses the computer it's like a menu they click yes or no for options. It would be nice if you could be with the tech while he's in the programming to see what all the options are.

RE: Dark Mode 2011 P7B
I don't think a tech will be "allowed" to change the TPMS settings(turn it off).
I have seen some people using ForScan to turn cruise on and it would theoretically be able to access things like TPMS

It doesn't appear to have a conclusion for cruise though.
