If my truck had a display like that and allowed me to set the pressure threshold, I would be a lot more willing to try to make it work. As is, I just said fuck it, not worth the BS.

Ahh, that's dumb. Even the cheapo ebay sensors I put on my winter wheels display within 2 psi of any name brand gauge I've used, I'd guess the tpms sensors are more accurate. I think the dash warning comes on at like 20 psi. The only problem is getting OCD and having to have all 4 display exactly the same number. GM though.

It does seem to be kind of a "miss" in naming, but they are Russian so I suppose we can give them a break.

KDXSR5 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.

IDASHO 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

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.

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.

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

KDXSR5 So I read the link provided above, but how do I know if I can do the honk method? The link was confusing.

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!
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

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

Subybaja Bummer.

Someone should sell a signal generator for testing the system.
