I just had new tires installed, and I have the low tire pressure warning. I installed a Kenwood HU that has vehicle information, and shows the tire pressures. It appears that when they reinstalled the tires, they got the right rear mixed with the left front. My left front shows the pressure of the right rear and right rear, the left front.



Is this because they are matched to each wheel and can't retrain themselves like on the 2015+ TPMS? Do I need to have them retrained every time I do a tire rotation?

Most of the 2015+ trucks don't automatically relearn and need to be done manually.

Go back to the tire shop, they should have a tool to do it

Might not for the Superduty until 2017, but 2015 and up F150 TPMS auto learn within 15 miles of driving. I have two sets of wheels for my F150 and can swap them back and forth and they never need to be trained, and report the correct air pressures too.

I have a 2016 Explorer and you need the tool or need to do it manually

Huh. Imagine that! You must have a magical F150 because there are no Ford Motor Company vehicles with automatic sensor detection. Tire sensor LOCATION calibration can only be done manually.

I guess both my 2016 and my 2018 have it. All I have to do to swap between my two sets of wheels is put them on and drive. When I got the second set of wheels I had new Motorcraft sensors installed, [ame]https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013GU2VTI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1[/ame] and the dealer said they wouldn't program for them using the reset procedure. I drove it without them being reset and by the time I got home they were registered and reporting the correct air pressures.



Come Spring time, I swapped back to the original wheels and tires, and again, just drove without needing to reset them, with the correct air pressures showing up on the dash.



I have done several tire rotations myself and they always reported the correct air pressures, and never had any issues swapping between summer and winter wheels on either of the trucks.



Looks like the Ford Fusion 2017-2019 also has it.



Type of Relearn procedures:


  • Manual, two types, standard ignition, and push-button start
  • Bonus OBD relearn procedure coverage as an option on the VT56, requires OBD module
  • Auto relearn
Auto relearn procedure:


  • Confirm TPMS sensors are properly installed
  • Adjust tire pressures to placard value
  • Drive vehicle for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph or until TPMS light is off.

No hijack intended, but I have a TPMS issue and rather than start a new thread, hope than I can get an answer here. I have a 2012 F350 6.7 diesel with the 'low pressure warning' TPMS. Anyway, I guess that's what it's called. I want real time pressure monitoring and want to know if I can have aftermarket TPMS valve stem sensors installed, replacing the OEM. I have TST Truck TPMS on my fifth wheel and can easily add the truck to the display. Is this swap possible without creating problems in the truck's computer system?

You should be able to add the pressure cap transmitters. Look for ones that are a different frequency to what is on the truck. I believe the ones on the truck now are 315 Mhz. Tireminder makes a 433Mhz to Bluetooth kit that can monitor the RV and truck at the same time.

Thanks AC; yes, I know about the external screw on’s, but they’re basically a PITA. I’d prefer to have the internals with stainless steel stems.

Well, you could do like I did and replace the head unit with a Kenwood Navigation with Maestro idatalink. It has vehicle information screen that shows the tire pressures. It also has gauges and track data. If you were ever curious what the 0-60 and 1/4 mile times are, it will record them for you.

Best part, the stock speakers never sounded so good!

No, don’t wanna do that; I upgraded all speakers when I stripped the interior and insulated all walls and doors. The OEM HU works fine for me. I’m still waiting for an answer on about replacing the OEM TPMS sensors with aftermarket. Another thing about screw on’s, TST does not recommend using those with rubber valve stems, and according to Discount Tire, the rubber stems cannot be replaced with steel.

Can no one offer any input on swapping out OEM sensors for aftermarket?
