04 expedition. tire pressure monitoring system not working properly, when tire pressure is set to 35psi per factory setting on door, tmps goes off. according to the dealer the spec on the tmps is 3-5psi below set tire pressure which should be 35psi factory setting. the dealer spoke to the ford tech they said to increase the tire pres to 39 psi, the dealer set the pres to 40psi. the tmps has not gone off, but my concern is it working . the sensor is actually set 5psi higher than the recommended pressure, and if the sensor is working now. is the sensor in a condition that does not allow it to work. in my profession, medical ventilation repair, if a pres sensor is pushed to its limit it has a tendency to stay in this position (stuck).if the tire does have a problem will it go off, the tmps has gone off continually since it was new. it has been in the dealers service at least 3 documented times and numerous times they just checked the tire press and adjust the press. ford sheet number 17030, of ford suggested fixes. tire pressure changes approximately 1 psi per 10deg of temp change. to clear tmps warning, set tire psi to spec with a digital gauge note to reduce false tmps warnings or ride harshness during tire service or pdi, the dealer set tire pressure to 35psi with a digital meter and we still get the light/message. if the tire pressure changes 1 degree for every 10 degree temerature change, set at 40psi in presscot where i live and driving to phoenix could make the press in the tire greater than the max tire pressure on the tire. the max on the tire is 44psi. this is also the case in presscot winter vs. summer.i don't believe that adding tire press is a correct fix.the tmps to what i have read doesn't alarm you to overpress, which could cause lack of traction in an emergency swerve. you would not have the same traction as the tire set at a lower press. ford should be required to make the tmps work as intended with the correct press stated on the driver door. *ak

tire pressure monitoring systems fails. after set, lights up although the tire pressure is properly set. advance trac system - automatically engages in conditions that do not require it (e.g. driving on the interstate). the vehicle immediately slows with a griding noise. both incidents have been reported to the dealer who has said that these are sporadic problems that have occured and that they have not been able to replicate, therefore, they can do nothing. however, after reviewing your site, i see that i am not the only person experiencing the same problems.*ak

i purchashed my 2004 ford explorer on january 11, 2005. after the first week i had to take it back to the service department of the dealership, on saturday, january 22, 2005. i informed them that the transmission is lagging when automatically shifting and that sometimes there is a loud clunk during the automatic shifting and especially when putting the car in reverse. also the tire pressure warning light has been coming on; so they checked that and said that they replaced the sensors. that light is still staying on. as for the transmission, i was informed that there is a manufacturer defect and that they were going to order the parts to fix it. as of january 31, 2005, the parts still have not come in. in the meantime i am having to continue to drive this vehicle and the problem seems to be getting worse. i do quite a bit of driving on the highway to get back and forth to work and i am very concerned about the transmission as well as the tire pressure. *ak

purchased tires from costco for the back of my pickup. they placed 82.5 psi in the rear tires of a empty pickup...as directed by michelin. this created a very serious safety issue as the truck did 3 revolutions down the freeway due to severely crowned tires. someone has to stop this recommendation or someone is going to be hurt/killed. this is a common sense issue that neither costco or michelin will address. i would like a response to this email if possible. this practice has to be stopped, please review with your engineers. thank you don preuitt. *jb

why driving the tire pressure indicator light will come on in the dash and the computer will state ?tire pressure sensor fault.? i have had it into the dealer four times and they have replaced the sensors and still having the same issue. the dealership has told me it has to do with a cell phone charger plugged into the cigarette lighter and setting off the tire pressure indicator on the dash, as well as sending a false signal to the computer. they state there is a ford bulletin out on it but i can find anything on it. *jb updated 01-15-08. *kb updated *jb
