Lots of good writeups on this here on the forums.
Write-up: How to Disable (Bypass) the TPMS

I, however, wanted to do it so it was un-disable-able.

1. Remove the black lower trim under the glove box with a single Philips head screw.
2. Pull the connector off the orange box.
3. Look for the pink/black and white/black wires leading into the male connector.
4. Take a 2" piece of Bell wire in 20 AWG and jump the two pins on the opposite side of the connector.
5. Wrap in electrical tape for posterity's sake.

Voila! Light is gone and I can remove when I get the pesky battery replaced in my dead sensor, when I get new tires next year.
Nice! I went with the wire tap route. Partially because when I opened that area up a previous owner had already stripped and taped together the two wires to bypass but the tape hadn't held and the wires were no longer touching. I was so glad it fixed my TPMS light because I too was going nuts with it flashing! Your method is definitely easier and more simply reversible!
