Question about 2012 Ford Focus
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.

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.

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.

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

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.
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).
