How to Train Ford Tire Pressure Monitior Sensors TPMS?

1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, then press and release the brake pedal. 
2. Cycle the ignition switch from the OFF position to the RUN position 3 times, ending in the RUN position. 
3. Press and release the brake pedal. 
4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position. 
5. Turn the ignition switch from the OFF position to the RUN position 3 times, ending in the RUN position.  
   *The horn will sound once and the TPMS indicator will flash if the training mode has been entered successfully.  
    If equipped, the message center will display TRAIN LF TIRE.* 
6. Place the tire pressure monitor activation tool on the LEFT (Driver's Side) FRONT tire sidewall at the valve stem.
    Press and release the test button repeatedly on the TPMS Tool until the horn beeps.  
   (It may take up to 6 seconds for the tool to activate the sensor, Leave the tool on the sidewall for the entire 6 seconds).  
   The horn beeping indicates that the body control module has recognized the TPMS sensor. 
7. Within 2 minutes of the horn sounding confirming programming of the LF tire,
   place the TPMS tool on the RIGHT (Passenger's Side) FRONT tire sidewall at the valve stem and press the test button to activate the sensor. 
8. Repeat step 7 for RIGHT REAR followed by LEFT REAR tire in that order.  The procedure is complete after the last tire has been trained.  
    When training is complete, the message center (if equipped) will display TIRE TRAINING COMPLETE.
    For vehicles not equipped with a message center, successful completion of the training procedure is verified by turning the key to the
   OFF position without the horn sounding.  If the horn beeps twice when the switch is turned to OFF the training procedure was not successful. 
 
NOTE: If the vehicle or wheels/sensors have been stationary for more than 30 minutes, the sensors will go into a "sleep mode"
             to conserve battery power.  It is necessary to wake them up by simply moving them or rolling the tires before they will communicate
            with the vehicle. 
 
NOTE: The TPMS training procedure must be done on one vehicle at a time, in an area without radio frequency
             interference - at least 3 feet away from other vehicles equipped with TPMS sensors. 
 
NOTE: Vehicles with different tire pressures front-rear like F-Series trucks and E-Series vans also require TPMS re-training
             after a tire rotation.  Failure to train the sensors will cause the TPMS warning light to illuminate on the dash.
