Question about 2004 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

How do you shut off the tire pressure fault sensor on a Ford Explorer? Its extremely annoying! It goes off every 25 miles, I had the sensors replaced once but at $75.00 each I am not going to keep doing that.

You cannot bypass this system. if the sensors were replaced at an independent shop, take it to the dealer and have the sensors calibarated (assuming they are not damaged). Its not very expensive.

Changed one tire sensor now a tire pressure sensor fault light keeps coming on.


That is normal when replacing one of the sensors. The whole set will have to be re-initialized and the dealership should do it for free.

I jus tput new 22 inch wheel a on my 2008 ford explorer and was wondering why the tire sensor fault is illuminated. Does it have something to do with the new wheels?


The tire sensors are on the base of the valve stems of the original wheels. Do your new tires/wheels have TPMS valve stems?

Unless you buy wheels with TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) sensors in them, or put your old wheels back on, the system won't work.

My 2005 explorer indicate Tire presure sensor fault


Check the tire pressure in all tires.They should be at the pressure shown on the spec sticker on drivers door.If one or more is low set them to proper pressure,then drive a few miles.This should reset sensor lamp.If not take Explorer to a tire shop and they should have a tester they can use to check the sensors or reset them.Thank government for the sensors,I worked for a car rental company in Maine and one year when cold weather hit we had to reset sensors in ten to fifteen cars a day for a few weeks.

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.

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

TIRE SENSOR FAULTY LIGHT


the tire pressure is looked at what by is called the tps, tire pressure sensor, go to a tire dealer or go back to the dealer you bought the car from and have him re-set the tps system, this is done by using a special tool,most bigger tire stores will have this tool it works with a frequency that is in the valves of the tires.
