Hello everyone.

Does anyone know how the "Tire Pressure Monitor learning mode" works? And what is it for?

Schrader 20315 Rubber Valve Snap-In TPMS Relearn Procedures: Ford, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercury

When new sensors are installed, they must be registered by deflation. There are two different relearn procedures for vehicles without push-button start. The third set of directions if for vehicles with push-button start.

First Procedure:

1) Drive the vehicle for at least 2 minutes above 20mph.
2) Park near an air station and keep the ignition key in the OFF position
3) Turn the ignition to the ON position, but with the engine off.
4) Turn the hazard flashers on and off three times within ten seconds, and the horn should sound. The TPMS light should be flashing letting you know that the vehicle is now in TPMS relearn mode.
5) Starting with the driver's side front tire, activate the TPM sensor by deflating the tire for 10 seconds., Wait for the horn honk to confirm that the sensor has been registered to the vehicle. It may take up to 20 seconds for the horn to honk.
6) Continue on to the passenger's side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
7) Next, move on to the passenger's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
8) Finishing with the driver's side rear tire, repeat the procedure in Step 5. Once the horn honks, turn the ignition switch to OFF to complete the TPMS relearn procedure.
9) Make sure all tires, including the spare (if equipped) are inflated to the vehicle's recommended inflation pressures.

Second Procedure:

1) Make sure all tires are inflated to the vehicle's recommended inflation pressures (found in the owner's manual on the door placard).
2) Turn the ignition switch to OFF then press and release the brake pedal.
3) Turn the ignition switch from OFF to RUN (engine OFF) 3 times, ending in the RUN position. Do this within 10 seconds.
4) Press and release the brake pedal
5) Turn the ignition switch back to OFF
6) Turn the ignition switch from OFF to RUN (engine OFF) 3 times, ending in the RUN position. Do this within 10 seconds
7) The horn should sound letting you know the vehicle has entered into TPMS relearn mode
8) Starting with the driver's side front tire, activate the TPM sensor by deflating the tire for 10 seconds. Wait for the horn honk to confirm that the sensor has been registered to the vehicle. It may take up to 20 seconds for the horn to honk
9) Once the horn sounds, move on to the passenger side front tire and repeat the process. Each tire should only take 30 seconds or less.
10) After the passenger side front tire has been learned, continue on to the passenger side rear tire and finishing with the driver's side rear tire
11) You may now turn the ignition to OFF. If the horn does not sound, the sensors were learned successfully. If the horn sounds twice, then the process must be repeated because there was a malfunction
12) Make sure all tires, including the spare (if equipped), are inflated to the vehicle's recommended inflation pressures

If your vehicle has push-button ignition:

1) Make sure all tires are inflated to the vehicle's recommended inflation pressures (found in the owner's manual on the door placard)
2) Make sure the ignition button is OFF then press and release the brake pedal
3) Hold the ignition button down for 2 seconds, release it, and then tap the button once. The vehicle should be OFF. Hold the ignition button down for another two seconds, release it, and then tap the button once
4) Hold the ignition button down for two seconds again. The vehicle should be in RUN mode, engine off
5) Press and release the brake pedal
6) Tap the ignition button once so the vehicle is OFF
7) Hold the ignition button down for 2 seconds, release it, and then tap the button once. The vehicle should be OFF. Hold the ignition button down for another two seconds, release it, and then tap the button once
8) Hold the ignition button down for two seconds again. The vehicle should be in RUN mode, engine off
9) The horn should sound letting you know the vehicle has entered into TPMS relearn mode
10) Starting with the driver;s side front tire, activate the TPM sensor by deflating the tire for 10 seconds. Wait for the horn honk to confirm that the sensor has been registered to the vehicle. It may take up to 20 seconds for the horn to honk
11) Once the horn sounds, move on to the passenger side front tire and repeat the process. Each tire should only take 30 seconds or less.
12) After the passenger side front tire has been learned, continue on to the passenger side rear tire and finishing with the driver's side rear tire
13) You may now turn the ignition to OFF. If the horn does not sound, the sensors were learned successfully. If the horn sounds twice, then the process must be repeated because there was a malfunction
14) Make sure all tires, including the spare (if equipped) are inflated to the vehicle's recommended inflation pressures

I'm guessing the TPMS learn mode procedure in ForScan just allows you to skip the first 5, 7, or 9 steps respective to whichever ignition type you have.

Tire Pressure Monitor learning mode, This service procedure can entered the vehicle into TPMS relearn mode (skip step 2-6 on Second Procedure).
