Door data sensor error and tire pressure monitor fault

I went through the car wash and every since then . My doors will not unlock, I have to manually unlock and lock them and my stereo will not turn off when I turn my car off, I also have to manually turn it off and my headlights do not automatically turn off and on. I also am receiving a tire pressure monitor fault error when I turn my car on along with the door data sensor error . My tires are fine so I am not sure what is going on

    your computer or ecu may have got wet. I think its out in the engine compartment. going into the firewall with a 8 mm bolt holding the wire harness to it. see if there any corrosion or any loose ground connections that may be loose or correded. you can try and diconnecting the batter and doubt its going to work but its worth a try

You need to order an "actuator" and install it, or go to the Ford dealer (or your trusted mechanic) and have the actuator replaced. The actuator is a solenoid that locks an unlocks the door latch. You can do it yourself if you are willing to take your door panel off and slice up your knuckles a bit.

These things have been a source of revenue for Ford for all models for many years. They just wear out too soon under normal use.

Both my 2004 Freestar side door actuators stopped working (intermittently at first) withing 2 months of each other in 2007. I ordered them from Bob Utter Ford (1-800-259-3560), for $42 each plus $9 shipping. See if your Ford dealer can match that before you order.

You need to set all the pressures to 35 psi. first then drive for approx.1/4 mile. If this doesn't work to reset the light (keep in mind the code itself will still be stored even though the light goes off) you will need to take it to your Nissan Dealer to have it scanned as there may be a malfunction with the sensor. If faulty and you are under 36k miles then it should be covered under your factory warranty. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1997 ford explorer rear driver side door won't open

Pull the panel off starting at the top, you can just pry the window control apart, you don't need to unscrew that part. I sprayed white grease (lubriplate) all around the door latch inside there, and it unlatched easy.
After I put it back together, the knob still doesn't rise as high as the other side. I think the linkage is binding, and the connecting rod is bent. At least if the door won't unlock with the button you can do it by hand.

SOURCE: Tire pressure sensor fault goes on while driving

Tire pressure always changes...
when you drive your vehicle for a long period of time the tires' temperature goes up along with the
pressure in your tires, the molecules in the air inside your tires get excited (hot)
when your vehicle is immobile for a while your tires' temperature goes down along with the
pressure in your tires, the molecules in the air inside your tires get compacted (cold)
This is the best time to get a true PSI reading from your tires....
the recommended tire pressure on most tires should be set at 35PSI
But there might be a problem with your sensors, I work with TOYOTA their sensors are set up to
where when the PSI on your tires drops below the 35PSI, the tire pressure light would then
come on.
You should also check if your spare tire comes equipped with pressure sensors, which in most cases
they do, depending on the type of tire the PSI on spare tires will usually range from 35PSI- 80PSI
you can check your owners manual for this, or simply read the recommended PSI written on the
tire.

What does reset tire mean


It's a sensor that goes off when your tire pressure is too low or too high. Check the air pressure.

That signal is from your tire monitoring sensors, telling you that there is air pressure difference between tires. The tire pressure should be same in all tires.

Car doors won't lock because of an error message. What could the problem be?


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

What does a triangle with an exclamation point mean?


TPMS-Tire pressure monitor sensor. low tire or bad sensor. if your tires are more than 3-5 pounds under pressure, this will trigger the light. Check your driver door for proper tire pressure, air the tires up and drive for 15 mins. If light doesnt go out, check the owners manual for reset procedure.

Tire pressure monitoring light is on


This means that the tire pressure monitoring system has detected one tire low on air via a difference in rounds per minute of a wheel using the wheel speed sensor, over several miles.

Try to correct by inflating all tires to 32 psi or the recommended tire pressure when cold, according to the sticker on the inside of the door or inside of glove compartment or in the owner's manual.

Check tires for evidence of a leak, or look for a nail that may have lodged in the tread of the tire.

Follow instructions in manual for erasing the tire pressure monitoring light and resetting it.

Every model and make and year. potentially, has different procedures for this, but it should be in the manual.

It's a Tyres Monitoring Pressure (TMP) system ECU (Electronic Control Unit) temporary faulty. Run for few miles above 30 mph, and all the temporary faults of Tyres Monitoring Pressure (TMP) system ECU will dissappear themselves. Also you can access & erase the TMP system ECU for all Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) memored, if you will connect a VW / Audi diagnostic equipment to the data link connector of the car.

Tire Monitor & Sensor Fault


The sensors are pretty dependable. You have to make sure that the tire pressures are on the money. Check the door jam for the correct front and rear pressures. Don't go by the tire, go by the door jam or owners manual. At times when the outside temperature changes a lot it can cause the light to come on.
You may want to check the tires for defects, punctures, or a bubble/s.
