Ford Super Duty Tire Pressure Monitors
 
This may be a :homer: question, but here it goes:

Will 2019 Super Duty tire pressure monitors work with a 2011 Super Duty?

Backstory:

Needed new tires for my truck. It was much cheaper to buy a set of new takeoffs from some bro dozer than it was to buy new tires. Got a set of aluminum 18" wheels with Goodyear Wrangler A/T Kevlar whatever tires with less than 400 miles on them for $900. I want to bolt them on to my 2011 F250, but don't know anything about the tire pressure monitors and if I will have to swap them from my old wheels to the new ones. Anyone know?

Thank you.

IDK if they will work, but you can try the programming procedures to find out.

I've just been driving around with the light on for over 100k miles.

Thought it would burn out eventually, but it's still going strong.

The light on the dash wasn't nearly as effective at alerting me as the chunks of rubber flying and what sounded like a shotgun as the tire distributed itself among the weeds.

So I decided they were pretty well useless as I actually check the tires and airbags and haven't ever bothered fixing that one.

I ran 11 take offs on my 12 for winter setups and just dealt with the light.

This truck has the screen in the instrument cluster and makes lots of annoying noises and flashes annoying visuals if one of the tires gets low. I am not going to drive around with that shit going on daily. I will break beads and swap sensors before dealing with that. I am really hoping there is a way to use the 2019 sensors though. I will look up the learn process and see if I can get it to work this weekend.

Sensors should be the same.

According to napa they are different. I knew they were on '16+ f150 trucks, so I looked at our parts program and they changed in 17 on the SD trucks also. Sorry, think they will not work. And, from what we learned on our f150 is that we cannot program them anymore like the older trucks. We either have to buy a new tpms tool or take them over to the ford store. good times, change is always a good thing!

For some reason this doesn't work for Fords. I have had an inflated tire with a good sensor in my bed while my spare is on and it still throws a warning. It's like it knows if the wheel(s) are not spinning.

I believe some are only energized when in motion.

Take the sensors off your current rims, put them all together is a small tank somehow and pressurize to 100 psi..... problem solved.

Wow where did you get that idea? :homer:

KDXSR5 09-13-2019 04:00 PM

Greg? Is that you? Fuck.

Subybaja 09-13-2019 04:10 PM

Bummer.

Someone should sell a signal generator for testing the system.

JolietJames 09-13-2019 06:14 PM

Someone should put a fucking switch on the dash so you turn the cock suckers off.

Part numbers may have changed (because of physical differences) but the signal that is transmitted may be the same. I remember being able to replace the banded sensors with valve stem sensors on 2010-2016-ish Fords. Same with GMs aluminum stem sensors with newer rubber stem sensors.

Worth a try if your truck does not need the TPMS tool and you can use the deflate method. Keep in mind the tire needs to deflate pretty low before the horn sounds during the learn process. If it does not honk, then all you lost is time and air pressure:D

KDXSR5 09-13-2019 07:46 PM

So I read the link provided above, but how do I know if I can do the honk method? The link was confusing.

ding, ding, ding.

Try them, worst case, you have to swap over, or maybe put a picture of the overall girl in front of the light.

Pulled it out of my rear. And apparently someone else had the same idea between when I opened the tread and actually got around to posting. :flipoff2:

You can turn the entire TPMS system off via ForScan

Thats what Ive done.

Running the high capacity tires I am (4080lbs per tire), I typically run just 40-50PSI in them empty and 50-60PSI loaded.

The idiots @ Ford set the factory TPMS lower limits to something stupid like 70PSI
No way Im running those pressures without a kidney belt :eek:

So Ive turned it off, and run a cheap chinese made valve cap TPMS setup.

This one.... works great, and also shows tire temp which is real handy as well for hauling heavy.

Shown in bars and Celsius, but can be switched over to PSI and Fahrenheit.
Recharged by solar, auto-dims when dark, and just sticks to the inside of the windshield.

KDXSR5 09-14-2019 01:04 PM

So I put the new tires and wheels on and took it to the tire store and they were not able to get them to work. I am very invested in using forscan to disable TPMS. I will look more into this.

KDXSR5 09-25-2019 10:12 PM

Forscan is the shit. TPMS is now disabled! What a beautiful tool especially for the price (free)! Thanks for the suggestions, I appreciate it
