TPMS after new wheels?

Anyone know much about this? I took the stocker wheels off a couple weeks ago and put the BMF's on. Ford OEM sensors are installed in the wheels. For 2010 these are NOT the band type strapped to the rim. They are screwed onto the end of the valve stem.

On the first truck I just drove it, and it seemed to learn itself. I got the light for a little bit but then restarted truck and it went out and stayed out the whole time I had it.

This one, it came on a few days after putting the wheels on and said "Tire Pressure Sensor Fault" then after while the truck will beep and say "Tire Pressure Monitor Fault" and the yellow light is on.

I tried to do the re-learn according to the owners manual and it won't pick up the left front that it says to start with. I took it into the stealer on Tuesday and they couldn't get it to train either. I took the front wheels off today and swapped side to side, then drove the truck that apparently "wakes" them up then tried the relearn again and it still won't pick up the left front.

I find it hard to believe that I have 2 bad sensors. Is there anything else I can check or reset on the truck? Dealer doesn't seem to have a clue how to fix it either.

Also.. I removed my spare tire... Would this cause a problem? Anyone know if that has a sensor in it as well?

Thanks

Some trucks do have spare tire sensor. Possibility why your sensors won't learn is some aftermarket rims put the valve stem/sensor in to far and the tool you use to activate the sensor dosent put out a signal far enough to get sensor. I had one that did this too me and I left the truck in neutral and rolled it if I had a problem at one of tires it seemed to work you may just have to fight with it

2010s don't have a tool like the 08-09 did. The way you activate the sensors to train them is simply drive the truck for more than 2 minutes to wake them up, then turn key off, then on, then hit hazard switch on and off 3 times till horn beeps and says to train tire. I did this then started letting air out, says u gotta do this up to 6 seconds. I do it 2 minutes till horn honks twice saying that training not completed. The smart junction box is apparently not seeing the sensors????

there should be some thing to activate sensor as idvidual to learn their ID's to the bcm. i'm not saying your wrong about the driving thing but if the computer has lost the calibrations all together then there is a different sequence for relearn.

on my F250 I didn't have to do anything. Just put the tires on, then I drove the truck for a bit, the light came on, then the next start sequence it went out and that was that. There's something else going on here... either all my sensors went dead, or they aren't transmitting thru the BMF wheels.. I had Mazzi wheels on the other truck, same tires and same sensors though.
