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

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.

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 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.
