Question about 2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

1 Answer

Tire pressure monitor system

I have a 2008 Ford Sport Trac. I put on new mags and tires. I want to disconnect the tire pressure monitoring system. This will not apply to my new wheels and I don't like having the light on. Plus in the winter I will be running with my factory wheels and tires back on. Will this change the system again?

There is no way to disconect the system that I know of. Plus that would be illegal if it was possible. It may be possible to put you sensors in the new rims (if they fit) then you would have to take it to the shop and have them relearned. Sorry

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.

Audi A4 2008- warning symbol TPMS ?????? what does this mean. Also, tire pressure light won't go off. just had four new tires put on.

TMPS = Tires Monitoring Pressure System.
If you have been changed all tires of the car you must programm again all four tires TMPS sensors. This is the reason for TMPS warning symbol lightning on the dashboard.

I have a 2007 ford explorer sport trac had it serviced they checked tire pressure and now low pressure light wont go off. All tires have same pressure

Are all the tires the max pressure? They should be. If nothing else, inflate to correct pressure then disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes and put it back on.

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

I have put custom rims on my 2008 grand prix and it gives me the check tire pressure reading on every start up. How do I disconnect this feature?

Not disconnectable. This is a mandated feature for 08 and up cars in the US, thanks to the Firestone Wilderness AT fiasco. There's sensors in the wheels that came with the car, they should be installed into your new wheels.

1. 2008 Express 2500 Van, V8 4.8L - Does the tire pressure monitor need to be reset manually or is it automatic ? 2. Do these vans come from factory with N20 in tires as standard ? as option ? not...

Comes with regular air in the tires. And if your Pressure monitor system is malfunctioning it may need reset by the dealer. We have a van that needed a new computer to resolve the pressure monitoring system problems
