TPMS for ST

I'm a noob here, just bought a PB Focus ST.
I thought I'd share the info I have found concerning the TPMS search for the new wheels I have on the way. which are the black Ford Racing 5 star wheels. Let me also mentioned the best price I've found, where I've ordered the parts. call Tousley Ford ask for Steve 800-328-9552, they'll sell a kit they've assembled $143.50 shipped. I asked about them being OEM and was told same as installed in the factory. I haven't received them yet as I ordered them 2 days ago. I'll do a follow up when all is said and done.

there's a Ford racing kit part #M-1180-A that has 4 sensors, 4 valve stems, 4 valve stem caps and a calibration tool.

https://www.fordracingparts.com/part...KeyField=22811


I was told by a person at Tousley Ford they don't make this kit anymore although as you see it's on Summits site.
link to same kit on Summit Racing.
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/fm...a/media/images

the individual Ford parts are
TPMS12 sensors, valves and caps.
(Ford part number 9L3T-1A180-A) as shown on this site.

http://www.sourceoneautoparts.com/p-...t-1a180-a.aspx
4 of them for $130 http://www.sourceoneautoparts.com/p-...t-1a180-a.aspx

I've also found the TPMS12 part on Amazon which I like to use for $35 each, which is the lowest I've found for the individual part on a few sites.

oops take that back did the part number 9L3T-1A180-A search and found them for $28
http://www.amazon.com/Ford-Pressure-...s=9L3T-1A180-A

the learning tool Ford part #TPMS19
amazon $31 , Jegs has it for $36
http://www.amazon.com/Motorcraft-TPM...eywords=tpms19

I hope this helps someone save some time and money. I've spent many hours finding this info to be sure I'm getting the right TPMS sensors at the best price.
I had a few private messages with a member who bought some on ebay that were all bad.

I ordered them Friday and receive them Monday, wow that was fast.
The programming tool is the Motorcraft part TPMS19 and the TPMS sensors have FoMoCo printed on them. so these are all OEM parts that Tousley Ford sold me. A positive sales exchange.

The programming tool wasn't needed. They taught themselves after a drive, 30 or 50 miles, I'm not certain but I'm leaning towards around 30 miles if I remember.

I purchased my TPMS sensors on E-Bay for $80 shipped 2nd Day Air. http://www.ebay.com/itm/FORD-OEM-TPM...f1c5f6&vxp=mtr
Another vendor has them for $60 with free shipping.

Question

question, do the stock TPMS sensors trigger the idiot light when pressure is too low and too high ?

You don't need any programming tool.
