My 2011 Ford Focus SES has a message in the information section which says "Tire Pressure Sensor Fault". What does this mean? I cannot find it in my owners manual. How much will this cost me if I need to have it reset or repaired? Thanks.

Your Tire pressure monitor system has failed, you should still be under warranty but if not it is safe to drive if you don't have the money to get it fixed right away ..it may be something as simple as a wire off or a ground

Battery in the wheel sensor could be bad. Same thing happened in my buddys porsche 911.

I didn't know the sensor had a battery Michael, like an ABS sensor battery? Please educate me if you don't mind, and no I am not being sarcastic, when I read it it kinda looked that way but really, I didn't know it had one

It basically has nothing to do with your car breaking down. If you don't have the money to fix it just let it go. Next time you need a new car, just don't buy a Ford, period!
