    Don't have the button in the gove box only the light button is the button any where else? I was told it had to be reset by hand held computer.

  • Bruce Hathcock Oct 09, 2009

    Yes the spare has the low tire but it still did not work but I will give it to you for the effort even thought it didn't work. took it tothe tire shop they hooked up the scanner and cleared it.

  • Bruce Hathcock Oct 09, 2009

    Did not fix it but you did a lot of work for the price and work was detailed and understandable.

The tire pressure monitor detects any changes in the tire inflation pressure. Therefore, it must initialize and store it in its memory if the tires or wheels have been replaced, re-inflated or the tires have been rotated. You can re-initialize the system by following these steps:

1. check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure

2. turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (in the glove box) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.

3 now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.

4 initialization is *not* completed until driving at the vehicle speed of 19 mph or over for more than one hour. the tire pressure monitoring starts when initialization is completed.............................sodeep

    Another way of Sensor Training(TPMS)

    FORD uses



    NOTE:
    The tire pressure sensor training procedure 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. This has to done becouse sensors used respond via current generated by the magnetic sensor & I hope this method will work:--





    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.

    Some models have it's(TPMS) on the spare too. So take notice of that being inflated accurately



    This should help. For now, probably all Fords are like this. And I do not believe that Ford puts sensors in their spares..........................sodeep

Low tire pressure warning light


i have the same thing. a tire store said they can't check as which one it might be without removing the tire. hard for me to believe. a new sensor is about 60.00 and the tire has to be dismounted and remounted. Not sure if they can even test it once it is out of the tire. i would like to come up with a way to test them in the car.

My 2008 Envoy has the tire sensors that connect to the computer .. I recently had two tires replaced and was having no problems but since the weather has gotten colder when I first start the engine the...


Air pressure in the tires drops when it is cold (as much a 5 PSI), as you drive they heat up and that makes them fall within the correct pressure limits to turn off the low tire pressure warning. I suggest you get an accurate tire gauge and air your tires up to 32 PSI all around.

A warning light came on looks like a horseshoe with ! in the middle what is that


That is the TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) warning light. It is letting you know that one or more of the tires is low on tire pressure. The correct tire inflation for the vehicle is located on a sticker inside the drivers front door. Make sure all four tires are inflated to that pressure.

If there all low I would bet you live in a cold weather environment. It is normal for tire pressure to drop as temperatures drop.

If one tire is low than it is probably leaking and should be checked for a repair.

Once the tire pressures have been corrected the vehicle will need to be driven for approximately 10 minutes at sustained speeds of more than 15mph.

What does the warning light (!) and a jagged underline mean?


Tire Inflation Pressure Monitor Systems (TPMS) are being used on more and more new vehicles. Low tires are potentially dangerous, especially if a vehicle is heavily loaded and traveling at highway speeds during hot weather. A low tire under these conditions is a blowout waiting to happen. The inflation pressure of the tires should be checked regularly, but many motorist do not check their tires. That is why Tire Pressure Monitor Systems are coming into use.

Tires are designed to operate within a certain pressure range. The recommended inflation pressure can usually be found in the vehicle owner's manual and on a decal that may be located in the glove box or door jam. The recommended inflation pressure is designed to give the best combination of ride comfort, load carrying capacity and rolling resistance.

Changed right front tire now reads zero on dash light is on


Your tire pressure monitor needs to be reset whenever you change or rotate your tires...

1. check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure

2. turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (think the switch is in the glovebox, but not sure) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.

3. now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.

4. initialization is *not* completed until driving at the vehicle speed of 19 mph or over for more than one hour. the tire pressure monitoring starts when initialization is completed.
