Weird TPMS issue (stuck ID's?)

I just had the TPMS sensors replaced on my 2012 SEL. After installation I vacated their crowded lot to go attempt strain/learn with the tool I have (garage door opener). I very much failed so I went back to the shop to have them do it. After scanning each sensor, and trying to force the new ID's into the BCM with the TPMS tool they had for about 30 minutes, he went and grabbed the whoop ass tablet also to no avail. About 45 minutes of the mechanic trying to set the new sensors, he looked at me said that the TPMS ID's from the old sensors are 'stuck' in the BCM.

I've spent hours trying to beat Google to death with this but can't find a viable solution

Hopefully someone here has seen or heard of this and can provide a remedy other then to just disable it with focccus/forscan

Side note:
-with the old sensors on the car (only 1 was working) it said "signal fault"
-With the new sensors on the car but not reading them (BCM still looking for old ID's) and the old sensors miles away in the trash somewhere, it says "low pressure"

This makes absolutely no sense to me....

Interesting. I wonder if this is why I can get my second set of wheels to pair?

So 5 days after installation and not being able to link them, the error message changed from 'low pressue' to 'pressure monitor fault'

If anyone has any ideas to what is going on and how to get them linked, please reply...

Possibly a malfunction with the TPMS module (internal to the bcm). If it is some sort of logic lock, you can try unhooking the battery overnight to reset the module. Then attempt training them again. If the issue continues, consult the dealer for diagnostics

What was the initial reason for having the original TPMS sensors replaced? Were you experiencing something similar to the currently stated problem?

Bummer, looks like I also need to go to the ford dealer for this issue. I went through 5 sets of wheels over the years(with new ford sensors every time), I put back on set #2 last week and I appear to be stuck on set #5's IDs (unfortunately I sold set #5 so they are gone). I've tried reprogramming multiple times and even tried a 6th set of focus wheels I just bought.

I guess maybe I pushed my luck by switching my wheels so often...
