Superchips Flashcal TPMS Problem

I bought the Superchips Flashcal because I wanted to run a lower tire presure. My JKR 10A came with 265/75/17 KM2 tires and the sticker on the door says 44 lbs front and rear. The tire pressure nanny was getting annoying so I tried to re-set the TPMS to a lower pressure. I set it for 32 lbs and i drove around for a while and nothing seemed to be happening. there is an option in the Flashcal to return settings to stock, so that's what I did. when I unplugged it and started my Jeep, the light was off, but i hadn't returned my tire presure to the recomended 44lbs. i drove around for a while and I think i somehow managed to turn it off. all four tires say 0 lbs and there's no chime and no TPMS warning light. I know that some of you are thinking this is a good thing, and I'd agree with you except I'm wondering if the TPMS system is tied to any other system like VSP or traction control.
Do the sensors take a lot of time to be recognized by the computer? I'm running 35 lbs in all four tires for now. in the past when I made changes to the tire presure, i noticed the system updating itself within a few miles.

I'm happy that the TPMS took an extended leave of absence, but I don't want to effect any other systems because of it.
What everybody else thinks of me is none of my business.
