Low Tire Pressure Indicator

Recommended Posts

I have a 2008 Ford Escape and am using the spare tire.  Now the Low Tire Pressure indicator light on the instrument cluster wont shut off.  Does anyone know how to temporarily disable it?

Hi Capt Tom,

Well, as I understand it, there is no TPMS sensor in the "emergency" spare wheel, so yes, the warning light will illuminate.
Mine is lit too...thanks to a tire replacement "mechanic" who destroyed the sensor.....(And the local Ford Dealer has no clue as to how to replace it or re-program the sensor....as is required, I gather, from YouTube videos on the subject.)

Anyway, I assume you have now refitted the original wheel & the light has self-extinguished????

Cheers,
Steve
