black electrical tape,...2nd most useful tape next to Duct Tape. I suspect it will show up on the multi function LCD panel at the center of the dash.Black tape over the alarm light always works
Unless there's an audible alarm, too...
Most likely you will have to get another set. But always remember that I can also get you awesome prices on Ford parts. We use a huge worm clamp along with OEM sensors here all the time with no problems at all."....Still wondering what to do with the TPMS sensors."
I'm wondering about that to.
We used to sell a programmer for the E-150 that would let you reprogram the TPMS by yourself. It cost about $20 or so.Each time I swap between seasons, it is another trip to get it reprogrammed, or buy a programmer.
I have a set of 17" early SVT Focus wheels and am dying to see how they look on the blue Fiesta, if there aren't any fit issues that is.The Fiesta uses 4 x 108 wheels. I am using a set of 2001 Focus wheels for the winter, and I test fit my 17" Focus wheels on the Fiesta this summer.
you will need to step down a tire size if you are using 215/45 17 on the wheel. I put my 17" Axis wheels on the Fiesta and noticed there is about a half inch gap between the tires and the fender when using the 215/45 17, so I am going with either a 205/40 17 or 215/40 17. Both tires will be very close to the same diameter as the stock 16".I have a set of 17" early SVT Focus wheels and am dying to see how they look on the blue Fiesta, if there aren't any fit issues that is.
Yes if you put aftermarket wheels on that don't have the TPMS sensors then the low tire pressure light or warning will just stay on. However if the Fiesta uses the TPMS sensor style that is part of the valve stem all you need to program that style is a circle magnet that has a whole in the middle that will go over the valve stem.I use one that is found in transmission panels that collect metal in the trans pan but you can find them at stores I am sure. To put the system in program mode you cycle the key 3 times within 10 seconds and after the third time leave the key on and press and release the brake pedal,the horn will beep and the message center will say program LF wheel. You then take the magnet and put it on the LF valve stem and wait till the horn beeps again and then put the magnet on the RF,RR,LR in order and wait for horn to beep on each wheel before moving to the next. After all wheels have been programed the message center should say programming complete. If they use the band type sensors then the program steps are the same except it uses a special programming tool instead of a simple magnet.Is it possible to just not program the system and deal with the light being on all the time?
