TPMS light stays on

I think the battery on my TPMS on left rear tire is out in a 2008 Aston Vantage. I want to disable the entire TPMS system. I pulled the plug under the glove box. Is there a way to bypass the system or short any of those color wires? if so, how and which one? I searched the forum but wasn't too clear on both the threads. Thanks!

Ok, I actually figured out myself last night. On the car side of the white adapter plug (see pic above), I connected black and red as well as black and white using 2 metal clips (can use stiff wires too) and all tire/TPMS messages went away. I believe black is ground. It is basically shorting the module or system (I think). I only drive 500 miles a year. So I don't worry about TPMS. I'm guessing one of the batteries in the tire sensor is dead. I can change all sensors later when I put new tires. I am sure dealer carries the sensors and it will be well over $1000.
