TPMS Question

I have an 08 F350 CC. It has the TPMS as an option. I had my tires rotated a week or so ago and after getting it done and taking it home I noticed that they had not adjusted the tire pressures (60 front and 75 rears) so i took the rears up and dropped the fronts down and then the next morning the light was on. I have verified several times that the pressures are correct. I am wondering if there is something that I have to do to let the systems know that the fronts and rears have switched? This was the first time I took the truck to this particular shop. So I am wondering if the truck thinks that the fronts are actually the rears and should have 75 psi in them instead of the 60 that I have in them?

I know when I had mine rotated, and I left the dealership, I had the same problem. Drove a few blocks away from the dealership and the TPMS light went on. Went back and the tech had to re-learn the TPMS. From what I could see on the dashboard, it was specific. It said driver front, passenger front, passenger rear, driver rear and the horn would honk after each wheel was re-learned.

they have to be reset every time..they are rotated or changed,, there is a tool and re learn process that your tire guys should know, if they dont.... go somewhere else.. most newer cars/trucks have them these day..
