You can get rid of the light from a failed sensor by wiring the ends together, but all you're doing there is removing the sensor from the warning...

This is also why you absolutely need to have TPMS with run-flats. If it loses pressure on the highway and you don't realize it, you can get some nasty failure modes after driving for a while.

Nothing is wrong.
