TPMS Relearn 2017 Focus ST

Post by dunnyst92 » Wed Jun 12, 2019 1:20 pm

Hi guys,

Have just had my wheels refurbished and getting tpms not detected on the dash. I’ve found the broken sensor and bought a new one.

I have looked at viewtopic.php?t=4345. I’m just wondering if I need to complete the whole procedure for all wheels? Only one sensor has been replaced (rear passenger which is 3rd in procedure)

Thanks

You will need to do all of them or it will think the rear one is the front left and confuse it completely.

Ok cheers gg. Will try the procedure and report back Saturday!

PS: Is there any way to find a faulty tpms sensor without breaking the tyre off?

I have the mondeo(fusion) and i can get the TPMS values for each wheel showing on the dash. The is an option in forscan to enable this. However i am not sure if you can do that in the Focus though. If you can you will see the a reading and which tyre they are transmitting from. Which is why when you can a sensor you have to do all for due to its learning cycle starting from the front left and working its way around clockwise.

as far as i know before 2015 you could do it with lowering the pressures in the tyre from then onwards you need the tool.
Cheers for the reply.

Going by your post on viewtopic.php?f=16&t=9878&p=33930#top I’ll need to get a tool as the car is not a pre 2015?

Thanks again

I purchased this tool. Its the top of the range from that manufacturer but it also future proofs me for other cars. there are cheaper ones in the range.

Just thought I'd update this. I bought the tool shown above and not getting any luck with it learning any of the sensors. Learning fails at the first tyre (Front Left).

Have put the car in learning mode via FORScan and getting nowhere!

Thanks

It will take some time for the first one to pick up. It took me 4 attempts before just getting the first one. Once i got that all the others picked up too. Just be patient and wait for the horn to go off before moving on.
