Ford Explorer Tire Pressure Sensor Fault: Essential Guide on the Reset Process and Troubleshooting Steps

If you own a 2011-2019 Ford Expedition Limited and are wondering how to reset and clear the TPMS tire light, you’re in the right place. In this guide, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of resetting the TPMS tire light on your vehicle.

Before we start, it’s important to note that the process covered in this video is applicable to Ford Expeditions made from 2011 to 2019. Even if you own a 2016-2019 model after the facelift, the reset process should remain the same.

What You Need

To carry out the reset process, you may require a TPMS scan tool. While it’s possible to attempt the reset without the tool by releasing air from each tire, using a TPMS scan tool is the recommended method. These tools are readily available for purchase online, with some entry-level models priced at under $100. Alternatively, you may consider renting the tool from a tire shop for a nominal fee in some locations.

Reset Process

The first step in the reset process is to enter the tire learn mode. Once in this mode, you’ll need to manually relearn each of the sensors, starting from the front left tire and moving to the front right, rear right, and finally the rear left tire. After successfully relearning each sensor, the TPMS tire light should turn off.

If you opt to use a TPMS scan tool, the process involves selecting your vehicle’s make, model, and year, then following the tool’s instructions to scan and relearn each tire sensor.

  1. Press the brake pedal once while the vehicle is turned off.
  2. Press the vehicle’s start button eight times.
  3. Press and release the brake pedal again.
  4. Press the start button nine times.
  5. Listen for the horn sounds or beeps, and follow the on-screen prompts to relearn each tire sensor.

After relearning all four tire sensors, the vehicle display should show a message indicating that the training is complete, and the TPMS tire light should turn off.
