    Yeah Audiphile followed the OP's instuctions. Tirerack also sent me a pdf similar to this one. He did it pretty fast in under 1or 2 minutes.

    We used the procedure that the OP posted, but here is a slightly modified procedure to make it a bit more clear (in red):

    Training new TMPS sensors for a Fiesta ST:

    - You may need to drive the car for 20 or 30 minutes to get the TPMS fault light to come on before you start.

    - Make sure the tires are inflated to the proper psi.

    - Open door, close door

    - With the car off, press and release the brake pedal.

    - Without starting your engine press the ignition button 5 times (to end up with ignition in ON position)

    - Press and release the brake pedal.

    - Press the ignition button to turn it off.

    - Without starting your engine press the ignition button 5 times (to end up with ignition in ON position)

    - The horn should sound once and a message to train the left front tire should appear on the MyFord Touch screen.

    - Use the TPMS-19 (TPMS-19-8C2Z-1A203-A) transmitter to train each wheel, starting the the left front and going clockwise around the car. You hold the transmitter against the sidewall, near the valve stem.

    I'm pretty sure it's distance based. I always get the light at the same place on my way to work. It's 16 miles from my house and it doesn't matter how many lights I hit or how long it takes to get there. My original rims and tires are in the garage where I park, so the system always resets when I park the car in garage and the cycle repeats the next day.

    THanx for the clarification. I would have been hitting the button 3 times and been frustrated. Is it correct to assume that (since I don't yet have the car, should be here this week) hitting the button without pushing in the clutch will turn on the car electrics, essentially like the ACC position of a keyed ignition?

    Ok I tried to reset the TPMS a half a dozen times.. Cost $6 for air at the gas station and no luck... Cheaper to buy black electrical tape over the light on the dash... Grrrrrrrr

    Cost $69 to ship it to Toronto.. The gadget cost $45.. Ford told me they charge $57 to do it 2x a year.. So for $45 I hope it works..

    I got mine from Tire Rack as well.. worked perfectly the first time using that on-off-on-off-on procedure. .. Mine came with a chunk of velcro. I stuck it to the side of the spare tire well so that I won't loose it.

    Thanks. I was going to get one too but my dealer said they dont charge to reset... I hope they didn't lie to me.

    Is there a way to disable the TPMS entirely?

    Why? Because its not needed when you regularly manually the check tire pressure.

    They told me $57 to reset each time I change my tires

    FYI: Amazon has the tpms tool for a bit cheaper than tirerack if anyone is looking to buy it

    You guys are lifesavers. I was about to bash my brains in trying to get my TPMS reset.

    Sorry, I know this is an old thread. Is it the tpms sensors that are getting trained, or the car learning the new sensors?

    If it's the former, are these steps required if I have two sets of wheels with sensors already trained? Or, do I have to do this every time I swap my winter/summer wheels?

    So I put new tires on my OEM Rims and now the warning light is on.
