Default TPMS

I recently installed new wheel and tire kit with tpms sensors from late model on my 2012 GT. When trying to use the tool to sync the new sensors I can get to learn mode but will not read sensors. Wondering what I needed to do. Tried driving the car to wake the sensors up that didn't work. I heard maybe letting all the air out of the tires, any help would be appreciated.

you might need to put it in training mode to retrain the sensors. Im not sure on the new ones but on the 2010's you step on the brake pedal once then turn the key on and off 3 times ending in the on position. step on brake pedal 1 time then cycle the key 3 more times ant the horn will beep and you then start with the front left, right then rear right then the left. the horn should beep when each sensor is read. I hope this works for you.

sorry just realized that you said you can get to training mode. are you sure whoever mounted and balanced your tires put the sensors in the new wheels? i cant remember if ford uses valve stem mounted sensors or banded sensors.

Sometimes when they go to sleep, you will need to deflate them, and re air them up. Once that is done you should be good to go. There is a PDF file attached to this part number. Follow this link and you can download it.

If you have to deflate them the entire way couldn't that damage the rim or the seal ?

No. If you have a compressor at the house, just deflate them 1 at a time. You wont have to take all the air our, but you will need to take most of the air out.

I had to do them same thing after i put my Drift wheels on.
