Tire sensor fault on our 2006 Ford Explorer after new tires
2006 Ford Truck Explorer
NOTE: The tire pressure sensor training prcedure must be done in
an area without radio frequency (RF) noise. RF noise is generated by
electrical motor and appliance operation, cell phones, and remote
1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position
2. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position three times, ending in
the RUN position. Do not wait more than two minutes between each key
3. Press and release the brake pedal
4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
1- Left Front Tire
2- Right Front Tire
3- Right Rear Tire
4- Left Rear Tire
5. Turn the ignition switch from the OFF position to the RUN position
three times, ending in the RUN position. Do not wait for more than two
minutes between each key cycle.
6. The horn will sound once and the TPMS indicator will flash if train
mode has been entered successfully. If equipped, the message center
displays "TRAIN LEFT FRONT TIRE." Place the magnet on the valve stem of
the LF tire pressure sensor. The horn will sound briefly to indicate
that the tire pressure sensor has been recognized by the TPMS module.
7.Within two minutes after the horn sounds, place the magnet on the
valve stem of the RF tire pressure sensor. NOTE: If the TPMS module
does not recognize any one of the four tire pressure sensors during the
tire training procedure, the horn will sound twice and the message
center (if equipped) will display "TIRE TRAINING MODE INCOMPLETE." If
this occurs, the entire procedure must be repeated from Step 1.
8. Repeat Step 7 for the RR and LR tires. When the tire training
procedure is complete, the horn will sound once and the message center
(if equipped) will display TIRE TRAINING MODE COMPLETE.
This should help. For now, probably all Fords are like this. And I do
not believe that Ford puts sensors in their spares (some GMs do).
