Maybe you've gotten lucky and that once they were trained the id's aren't forgotten, however that's not the way its supposed to work.
I'm not "arguing" with you suss, I telling you facts... we've had 5 Ford vehicles (including the 3 that we presently own), and we've switched winter wheels and summer wheels on all of them, several times over the years. You mean to tell me, I've gotten "lucky", each and every single time?? Come on now....
Even my dealer said I wouldn't have any issues, which in fact, I haven't. I've even heard from friends (with F150's), that "cheaped out" and just put winter "steelies" on without sensors (so, the dash warning was on all the time), anyway, they have told me that pulling up to another newer F150 (with the factory wheels still on) at a stop light, has temporarily made their warning light go out due to very close proximity to the working sensors beside them. I've heard this multiple times... why is that do you think? It tells me that they "auto train"....
