I bought a 2010 SES back in October 2012 from a Ford dealership in town. I recently tagged a curb very hard, flattening a left front tire. Last week the dealership ordered me 2 new tires (Dunlop). They installed yesterday, and today when I left work for lunch the low tire pressure warning came on. If I'm understanding some of the responses in this thread, it's because they did not install the sensor-compatible valve stems as well as sensors in these new tires.

Being a Ford dealership, and that this is a federally mandated system, is that not only something they should have known about and performed, but also informed me of ahead of time when I purchased the tires?

**EDIT** Disregard - seems one of the new tires had a bead that was messed up. Said it either came that way or they messed it up when putting it on. Getting me a new one overnighted, hoping to have it in time to put it on before they close at noon tomorrow.
