Yes as long as the 17s have tpms valve stems.

CeeBee I'll chime in here too...

I bought a set of OEM sensors with reset tool from an online Ford parts dealer, and had them installed when I had my new winter tires mounted on rims last month. I put on the winters Saturday and still have not had a tire warning/light. I've driven the car about 4 times since and have put on 100 kms in that time.

My 3 season wheels/tires are stored 4 floors away in the storage room of my condo.

SaToX Just got a call from the dealer, from what he was emailed from ford directly, It seems as if the car is running an indirect system so it can't tell very well when all the tires drop in pressure. I will get him to print off the email and I'll post it up.

Hi SaToX,

Did the Service Adviser ever get you an answer? You can always reach out to Ford Canada to get assistance, especially if you're having any concerns at your dealership. They can be reached at 1-800-565-3673.

Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

PratoN Well, it sure does work! I got a low tire pressure warning yesterday. This was the third nail I've driven over that required repair since I bought my car. Thank you, Baby Jesus for Discount Tire.

My buddy was like, "AGAIN!? Get a new car! This one is a lemon." hahaha

As discussed earlier, the new sensors will be picked up by the cars BCM, and your warning light will go out. However, if you want the BCM to know which sensor is at which corner if the car, they have to be trained. The only reason that would be truly useful was if we had the ability to monitor each sensor individually, which presently in NA, we can't.

copernicium112 Well, I'm 7 days in and still hearing the warning tone and seeing the dash lights every startup. I park a little further than 40 yards from my summers but not much further. I'm taking it in tomorrow. I'll talk to the tech and see exactly what he had to do and talk to the service manager to see how much he knows about these. I'll report back if I find out anything interesting either way.

Who knows, maybe it is an issue of manufacturer and that is why some seem to auto-trigger and some do not (mine came from Tire Rack but I don't know the manufacturer). Either way, hopefully I'll know more tomorrow afternoon.
