Not all F150's have TPMS?

Just curious if all new F150s are supposed to have Tire pressure sensors? I just put my aftermarket wheels and tires on my 2010 fx4 that finally came in last week, and the Tire pressure light has not come on after I swapped. I figured maybe after I drove it, but put 7.5 miles on it and light never came on.

I'm not sure if all the new F-150's have TPMS's or not, however I do recall seeing where many aftermarket wheels are compatible with TPMS.

All of the new F150s have TPMS; it's a federal law.

That is what I thought, I still don't just don't understand why my tire pressure light hasn't come on after I swapped out my stock sheels/tires with my old aftermarket ones.

Is it possible the installer simply moved the sensors to the new wheels?

The TPMS is described in your manual.

No, becuase I installed them myself. Took them off of my 05 and put them on my 2010.

Interesting. Either your TPMS is not working or the light is burned out. Sounds like a trip to the dealer...

Please let us know what you find out.

If you park near where the tires are stored, when parked it will pick up the signal. If all you have made are short trips (less than 20 mins at highway speeds), it will not get a fault.

You need to drive it more before the TPMS light comes on.

Exactly. All '07+ vehicles have some sort of TPMS.

The light took about 3 days to come on in my ranger. I was driving 100+ km a day too.

I think you're problem is that the 07-08 sensors are banded to the wheels and the 09-10 wheels are part of the valve stem assembly.

Tire Rack and http://revolutionsupply.com/(S(jftca...FR5inAodSCOYKA sell replacement units (probably cheaper than Ford).
