    So I'm not sure what the correct procedure is, but I can tell you when I picked up my car, they swapped on the winter wheels right away. After about 50km of driving the TPMS light came on. I took it back to have them pair the sensors, the guy just jumped in the drivers seat, a minute later got out, and they were paired. He did not go around wheel to wheel.

    put 43psi in all tires and drive around and the light should go off. Then lower then to the desired pressure and light should stay off.

I might try putting them up to 40 PSI and driving for a bit and see what happens.

    Going to try that as well as the reset.

    They were way under filled when put on (thought the dealer would be smart and fill them) and filled them to 41 psi.

    For what it's worth, when I first tried the reset procedure it didn't work. It is important that BEFORE starting the individual wheel procedure that you inflate ALL tires to the recommended 46 psi. Start the process and the rest should work fine.

    Note: I've found that if any tire drops below 37 psi after resetting that it will trigger the TPMS light and you'll need to redo the setup.

    Same thing happened. Put 41 psi all around (was at 38/41). Next startup light was off.

    I took my winter wheels to a local shop that put them on.

    I drove home without issue but the next day the light went on. I checked and found the pressures were all over the place from 30.5 to 35psi. I filled them all up to 41 and the light hasn't come back on.

    Next time I'll make sure the guy knows the proper procedure and pressures. Personally I suspect he didn't check the pressures since the tires were already mounted on wheels. No excuse for poor workmanship though.

    I bought the TPMS tool for my 2013 ST, never used it. It's not needed. Try this.

    1) Make sure your tires are inflated to the recommended psi. I used 46psi, but lower may work.

    2) Turn ignition to the on position. Push the start button without pressing the clutch pedal.

    3) Push the hazard light button 6 times. The horn should honk and you should see "Train left front tire" in the LCD display between the tach and speedo.

    4) Release air pressure in the front left tire until you hear the horn honk. The LCD display should now read "Train right front tire".

    5) Release air pressure in the right front tire until you hear the horn honk.

    6) Repeat for the the right rear tire, and then the left rear tire.

    7) You should now see "Training Complete" in the LCD display.

    8) Set your tires back to your favourite pressure. At least 38 psi.

    Copied from another TPMS thread...

    On the ST, the TPMS would mate up automatically within a couple minutes driving. 35psi was all it needed. This worked in the Fall last year, and spring of this year when swapping between summer and winter sets.

    On the RS, I swapped the wheels over last weekend. The tires were originally set to about 36psi, the light came on after about 15 minutes of driving. I stopped at a gas station and upped the pressure to 42psi and the light has not returned. No Triggering tool required.

    It seems any Mk3 Focus compatible sensor will work with the RS, just put enough pressure in the tires so the car doesn't get upset.



    TL;DR - The answer is 42.

    Is there any particular reason I should even care the Tpms light is on after switching to my winters? Aside from not being told I have low pressure when it happens.... I guess I will just have to notice I have a flat the old fashioned way, with my eyeballs and ear holes. It doesn't cut power or do anything stupid right?

    Mine would also self learn when I would switch back and forth between my 2 sets of wheels
