If the tires are not all the same shape, brand, size, and age, this will haunt you. The best thing to do is manually check your tire pressure every time you get gas for a month or so. If a tire has a slow leak, it might take a few days or a week to measure, and you may never "feel" a low tire until damage is done to it. While doing the pressure check, fill the tires up to what ford recommends. If you have a slow leak, you will remember after filling up the same tire a few times.

That being said, you may not have a leak. A tire may be out of balance, or out of round. Check your tread depth. Sensors are also known to go bad.

SOURCE: ideal tire pressure 2005 ford ecape limited

the manufactor puts a sticker on the passengers side rear door with recommended tire pressure.if you want a smoother ride then decrease the rear tires by 2 lbs,so if the front is supposed to be 35 lbs,put 33 lbs in the rear.try to keep the 2 rear tires the same exact and the two front the same to keep the tires from wearing un-even..unless you have a air pressure monitor in the system that lets you know when your tires need air,this way feels better.The reason for the difference from front to back in pressure is because of the weight of the engine.

SOURCE: tire size for 2002 ford focus hatchback

Your ford focus had options to wheel size, If you have the 15 inch wheel the original tire size is 195/60-15 and if you have the 16 inch wheel option your tire size is 205/50-16. Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: where is the low tire reset button located on 2005 ford freestar?

It is on the same button as the Trip Odometer. Cycle through until you see Tire Reset and hold the button down.

SOURCE: 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 transmitters.

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 cycle.
3. Press and release the brake pedal
4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

Sequence:
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).
Good luck

What are the tyre pressure of a ford focus 1.6 automatic 2014


Coming from someone who has worked for Chevy,Ford,and Chrysler dealerships we had to gauge the tires by what the sticker said on the door jam at the driver side..I disagree with it...It is always best to gauge tires with the outside temp because cold weather and hot weather make a huge difference...NASCAR racing can drop a tire pressure on one tire and raise it on another for better traction on the constant left hand turns...Just a 1/2 of a pound can make a huge difference..Tires tend to swell in hot weather and on long trips..another reason it normally says to gauge a tire while it is cold which means been sitting still overnight..It doesn't mean cold weather...However tires won't swell in cold weather...I like running 40 psi in tires if it says 32 or 35....this will give you a good flat even tire wear...I have always added 5 pound to whatever it told me to gauge it at...If a tire wears out on both edges it indicates low air ..,also tire alignment can wear one side of the tire....If it wears in the center it means too much air...It is hard to keep them perfect because of rotations..,weather ,and certain terrain but it can be done by checking them every month....Some tires have different pressures written on them that is different than the door sticker...To answer your question ...Add 5 pounds to the door sticker...,your tires will last longer..They won't last as long with door sticker pressures which will give dealers more tire business...Another thing dealers do is put nitrous in tires instead of air which is supposed to keep air from swelling and changing in the summer and winter...This is good..It isn't Nitro that explodes.....Always tell them to gauge them with your choice of tire pressure....

How do i reset my tire pressure lite on my dash on a 2012 dodge ram 1500?


It should go off when all 4 tires are set to the PSI shown on the inside door panel on the drivers door inside panel.
Or maybe the gauge is off a little...if so you could try another tire gauge.

Hope this helps you.

Put air in whichever tire is low and the light should go off. Use a manual tire pressure gauge to find out which tire needs the air.

Why does it show the message: LOW TIRE PRESSURE


there is a tire pressure sensor on each tire check the air pressure on each tire and recalibrate the system each time you put air in any of the 4 tires or if any of the tire gets low air.Its like teaching the system on the present tire air pressure.One thing more the valve on each tire are special valve that have electronic part inside so make sure you dont replace them with an ordinary tire valve.Recalibrating shld be done on workshops with the proper tool

Low tire pressure indicator remains on in Sc430


Either your pressure indicator is bad or the tire gauge you used is bad. Don't go by what the air pumps say, use a decent tire gauge.

Tire pressure light remains on.


We took it back to the dealer. They made the necessary adjustments needed after the winter tires +rims were put on.
