2012 Escape tire sensor question


Asked by linclon_j Feb 27, 2013 at 12:31 PM about the 2012 Ford Escape XLT

Question type: General

If a tire loses air pressure does the sensor alert you to which specific tire is low or do you have to check all the tires?  And if it does alert to the specific tire, when you rotate the tires do you have to recalibrate to let the computer know the new location of the tires?

no it does not let you know which one. you have to check to see which one is low. once you set the pressure if you drive it a few miles the light will go out.

It's easy to see when a tire is low on air. Take a look at the tire side walls. A soft tire will be hotter after a drive too.
