Changed tires/rims

Asked by Jan 31, 2012 at 07:22 PM about the Ford Escape

Question type: Car Customization

Changed standard tires/rims on 2008 Escape to alloy rims from a 2010 Escape. Now
TPMS indicator blinks at first then becomes solid on. Can the TPMS be retrained
without any tool? I tried OFF/RUN 3times, Brake, ON/OFF 3 more times, horn
beeped.
Am I to lower tire pressure on all four and then retrain? Please explain, thanks!

I dont think that the tpms sensors on an 08 and a 2010 are interchangable. the 2010 uses a sensor attached to the valve stem and the 08 uses a band style mounted on the rim. the sensors can be transfered from your old rims but you would need to buy bands and valve stems.

should work,check air psi,check cold to get correct psi reading.
