sailor Dealer time then at that mileage, could have a bad sensor or system fault if they're pumped up properly.

The light came on. Only 7k miles on car. Still using stock tires and rims. When I do the 2013 sequence nothing happens :(

More of a set point below which you get a warning light, not just a slight change or daily temp. fluctuations that affect pressure would set it off.

lowflyn To those saying the sensors "sleep" when not in use I have seen otherwise. My factory wheels are stacked up behind where I park my car every night. No light every morning but about 20 miles later it's on. Stays on until I park in my driveway again. Those wheels haven't moved in over 4 months...

2012FocusSESport Just installed 4 new Conti Extreme Winter Contact tires on new steel wheels with new Ford TPMS sensors. Low tire light came on 52 miles later. Using the TPMS-19 TPMS tool and having the car in the learning mode did not work to train the system. Trying the other way by letting air out did not work either. I ended up at the Ford dealer and they put the car in train mode used a bigger TPMS tool, and voila each tire sensor checked in ok. The technician then took my TPMS-19 trigger tool and I put the car in training mode and it worked this time. The mx tech said they are seeing some of the new TPMS sensors that need to be initialized the first time with the tool he used then they work fine with the little TPMS-19 trigger we bought. $30 and 30 minutes from driving in to leaving. I tried 3 times before going to the dealer, but nothing worked. Hope this sets it up for the remainder of the times we'll be swapping tires in spring and winter.

ehlersgrub I have a 2012 Focus. I was able to get in the program mode quite easily but could not get the first step (LF tire) completed. I made sure all the tires were at the correct pressure (35 psi) before I started. I bled the tire almost flat with no results. I did this seveal times included running the car around the block to hopefully activate the sensors.

Use this if you're installing winter wheels/tires that have sensors already installed, or even if you are just doing a tire rotation. Not sure if this has been posted before. I tried searching but didn't see it posted anywhere. No need to go and buy the TPMS learning tool.

1) Make sure your tires are inflated to the recommended psi. Mine is 40psi.

2) Turn ignition to the on position. If you have a push button start, push the start button without pressing the brake pedal.

3) Push the hazard light button 6 times. The horn should honk and you should see "Train left front tire" in the LCD display between the tach and speedo.

4) Release air pressure in the front left tire until you hear the horn honk. The LCD display should now read "Train right front tire".

5) Release air pressure in the right front tire until you hear the horn honk.

6) Repeat for the the right rear tire, and then the left rear tire.

7) You should now see "Training Complete" in the LCD display.

8) Fill your tires back up to the recommended pressure.

Enjoy!
