problem #1

I have an 09 F150. My problem is with the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). It keeps indicating a tire pressure sensor fault. I took it to one Ford dealer and they replaced 3 of the wheel sensors. I went on a 1600 mile trip after that and I continued to get tire pressure sensor fault. The problem is intermittent. I took it to another Ford dealer and they said that the previous Ford dealer had installed them incorrectly. This was not the case. After consulting with the original dealer we determined that they installed correctly. I was told that Ford now says that certain electronic devices like cell phones and gps's may interfere with the system. My truck has had the problem with no gps or cell in the cab. After doing some research on Ford's TPMS system I found that this has been a problem since Ford started using it. On all models whether car or truck people are having the same "tire pressure sensor fault" error show up. I feel Ford should recall there all vehicles equipped with this system and have them replaced with a system that is reliable. The manual says that while the system is in error mode that the system may or may not work. I think this is a huge safety issue because while I do not rely solely on the system to monitor tire pressure I'm sure there are a lot of people who do and others who could have a tire going down and may not know it until its to late. My mother in laws 05 Explorer has the same system with the same error message. Ford needs to do something before someone gets hurt.
