Is a tyre pressure warning light an MoT failure even if the pressures are correct?

Is a tyre pressure light showing an MoT failure even if the pressures are correct? Can I just disconnect the light?

Asked on by

A malfunctioning tyre pressure monitoring system will not cause the car to fail the MoT, as it is considered a minor defect. However, disconnecting the system will result in a fail, as the tyre pressure system will be obviously inoperative.
