5speedRuby i find i dont believe this, not so the procedure but i have had 3 sets of wheels and 3 different sets of TPMS sensors of off 3 different types of cars and never once has my focus needed a relearn. i had factory 16" wheels with ford tpms. than switched to 18" aftermarkets with TPMS sensors from an ST. and currently have 19" 2014 ford fusion wheels with the factory fusion TPMS sensors installed and as soon as i switched my wheels all three times the focus automatically relearns itself like its supposed to. never once had a tire light on due to needing a relearn procedure

mishka hey all. just saw this thread first time. I've yet to read it all, but I got a message saying "train left front tire" i've never seen before. The air pressure was okay. I guess i'll try doing the step by step to train the tires . I'm under warranty... will the dealership do it for me?

block I think those of you that are NOT getting errors but did not calibrate the sensor might be fooling yourselves. Based on posts, it seems the system requires us to tell it what the pressure the tire is when filled all the way and zero pressure. If you do not do this, it might assume the current pressure is the max pressure (or does it not notice a new sensor has been installed - the car's computer thinks the prior tires are installed?).

Let's assume your winter tire is 20% low when we install it and we leave it that way. Since the car has nothing else to go by, it might assume the tire is filled 100%. If it falls 10% (from already being underinflated by 20%), the "dummy light" won't come on because the car thinks the tire is only 10% low.

The sensor needs to be either an absolute pressure sensor AND be told what the correct pressure is for the tires currently in use, OR we need to tell it (calibration) what the correct pressure is for the tires. Otherwise there's no way the car can know what pressure is "low" for your tires. Since (according to various posts) we need to calibrate them, it seems to me the sensor is likely not absolute.

I have barely done anything with my car yet. i bought it recently and am driving a winter rat (my 99 Contour with V6)). Couldn't pass up $4500 in incentives, $500 coupon/cash form ford, and the dealer knocked off $1640. $6640 total off. A plain SE sedan manual coudl have been purchased for $13k I think. I paid under $16k and had $3k (or slightly more) in options. I paid $16k (new) for my 99 Contour, which other than the sweet/smooth V6 has no options on it.

leppylep Hi guys, been checking out this forum for a few things and seeing winter is on its way im looking at getting a set of winters for my 2012 focus titanium. It has currently 18's on it and for said i should put on 195/65R15's so pricing out tires and such, but im on the fence about bothering to get TPS sensors on my winter set. I love it on my truck so more then likely ill do it. But they want almost 70 a sensor. I normally look on Rockauto for all my parts and they have 7 to chose from ranging from $34 to $56. Has any one ever looked at these? dont have a specific link to the sensors because how they have their catalog set up but if some one could go to and take a look to give me a idea?

annamal This is fantastic! Just put the all-seasons on my ST and now I don't have to worry about idiot lights going off for no reason at all.

2•ohh Ok the eBay sensors worked. I didn't even have to go through the learning process!! Going strong for over a month now without a warning light.

2•ohh Work for me with the stock 17" wheels. Going to be mounting new rims and snow tires with eBay sensors soon. We'll see if it works with those.

Darth_Focus I purchased the ford tpms set from eBay and used the training method mentioned here and it worked like a charm. I never had a warning light of any sorts but did drive about 30 km before training. Got a horn honk at each tire. Worked perfectly. Thanks for the info
