How do I get rid of flat tire light on dashboard

Just purchased my first Power Stroke a 08250. The original owner put bigger tires on truck and the (!) sign on the dash comes on each time I use the truck. Is there any way of getting rid of this?

The only way to get rid of the light is to take the dash cluster apart and put a piece of tape on the back side of the inlay to cover up the bulb for that light. That is what I did and the light is gone, but the Tire Pressure Fault still comes up when I start the truck. Do a search for TPMS and you will get lots of results for this topic.

if the sensors are still on the wheels and seeing how you got an F250. Put 65 psi in all four tires and check the spare and you should be good to go. And be glade you dont have an F350 or it would of been 80psi for the rear.

Some users have been lucky to go to a Ford dealer and have them adjust the Tire Threshold limits. Try one dealer, if they say no, try another dealer is what they say.

I have a 350 and 65 is the number. With that said, each tire psi must be within 5 psi, and all over 65 psi, or the light comes on.

Some of them are adjustable but most service mangers and writers don't know that and sad to say don't care enough to find that out. But the one that I messed with was an 08 Explorer and there was no way to lower it below what the door sticker said.

psi

I've got a 350. At my first service i had them adjust mine down to 65psi. Not certain, but I think the swapped the sensors out for the 65psi ones. Much better, I didn't want to drive around all winter with 80lbs of air in my back tires.
