Default Two Ford questions (computer related)

I was wondering if anyone here could help me out on these two issues.

One I have to turn in our 2005 Explorer at the end of the month. I had two of the tire pressure sensors replaced and now need them retrained. Anyone have access to the tool to do this or know how to get it into training mode?

The other problem is we bought a 2000 Expedition and the idiot left out the fact he only has one key for it so I can not program a new key. I need to have the key code reset in the computer. Anyone have access to the tool for this? I know I can buy two keys on EBAY but need to program them.

Thank you in advance.

Sensor Training

NOTE: The tire pressure sensor training procedure must be done in an area without radio frequency (RF) noise.

RF noise is generated by electrical motor and appliance operation, cellular telephones, and remote transmitters.


1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
2. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position three times, ending in the RUN position. Do not wait more than two minutes between each key cycle.
3. Press and release the brake pedal.
4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
5. Turn the ignition switch from the OFF position to the RUN position three times, ending in the RUN position. Do not wait more than two minutes between each key cycle.


The horn will sound once and the TPMS indicator will flash if train mode has been entered successfully. If equipped, the message center displays TRAIN LEFT FRONT TIRE. Place the magnet on the valve stem of the LF tire pressure sensor. The horn will sound briefly to indicate that the tire pressure sensor has been recognized by the TPMS module.
Within two minutes after the horn sounds, place the magnet on the valve stem of the RF tire pressure sensor.
NOTE: If the TPMS module does not recognize any one of the four tire pressure sensors during the tire training procedure, the horn will sound twice and the message center (if equipped) will display TIRE TRAINING MODE INCOMPLETE. If this occurs, the entire procedure must be repeated from Step 1.

Repeat Step 7 for the RR and LR tires.
When the tire training procedure is complete, the horn will sound once and the message center (if equipped) will display TIRE TRAINING MODE COMPLETE.


For the key, if it has auto start, then start the kar using the auto start then shut it off and start it with the single key, then start it with the second key and you'll have two programmed keys. If you don't have autostart, take it to the dealer and sweet talk them into programming it. You might have to toss the mechanic some money, but you should be able to find someone to do it.

Quick question about the tire reprogram.

When it says turn from off to run 3 times, do you know if they mean

-run
off-run
off-run

or
run
off
run

I will also try it in a parking lot somewhere to avoid radio interference.

Like your first example.
