From 2005 STS Owners manual:
Each TPM sensor has a unique identification code. Any
time you replace one or more of the TPM sensors,
the identification codes will need to be matched to the
new tire/wheel position. Each tire/wheel position is
matched, to a sensor, by increasing or decreasing the
tire’s air pressure. The sensors are matched, to the
tire/wheel positions, in the following order: left front (LF),
right front (RF), right rear (RR), and left rear (LR).
You will have one minute to match the first tire/wheel
position, and five minutes overall, to match all four
tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than one minute,
to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five
minutes to match all four tire/wheel positions the
matching process stops and you will need to start over.
The TPM matching process is outlined below:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Press the push-button ignition switch to OFF/ACC.
3. Using the Keyless Access transmitter, lock and
unlock the vehicle’s doors.
4. Press the lock and unlock buttons, at the same
time, on the Keyless Access transmitter. A single
horn chirp will sound, indicating that the TPM
system is ready, and the sensor matching process
5. Start with the left (driver’s side) front tire.
6. Remove the valve cap from the valve stem.
Activate the TPM sensor by increasing or
decreasing the tire’s air pressure for five seconds,
or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp,
which may take up to 30 seconds, confirms that the
sensor identification code has been matched to
this tire position. To decrease the tire’s air-pressure
use the pointy end of the valve cap, a pencil-style
air pressure gage or a key.
7. Proceed to the right (passenger’s side) front tire,
and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
8. Proceed to the right (passenger’s side) rear tire,
and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
9. Proceed to the left (driver’s side) rear tire, and
repeat the procedure in Step 6.
10. After hearing the confirming double horn chirp, for
the left rear tire, exit the matching process by
turning the ignition switch to OFF/ACC.
11. Set all four tires to the recommended air
pressure level as indicated on the tire and loading
12. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.

It won't hurt you vehicle at all to not have the sensors. You will not be able to make the TPMS light go off with no sensors.

The TPMS is a pain in the you know what. Have you changed tire sizes? There could be a bad sensor and may need replaced. We continually get problems all the time with the TPMS. We have reset then they reset again.

you may be able to use a 17 in rim but will need a smaller tire(sidewall)
formula: 185/65/15(maybe stock size)-195/55/16-205/45/17
if your rim size goes up-the first number(circumfrence)goes up 10/second number(sidewall size)goes down 10
you may look at a 205(or 215)/35(or 40)/17
i had a 205/45/16 on my b13 and still had room
either that or you shve the fender wells to make room
