Ford Fiesta Tyre Monitor Malfunction


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am new to this forum, so pardon me if I have posted this in the wrong section.

I have a 64 Plate Ford Fiesta Zetec that had stock originals 15" 195/55R15 wheels on. I recently just upgraded them to the 17" 205/40R17 ST Wheels. Everything seems to be OK, but on my dashboard the "Tyre Monitor Malfunction" error has appeared. I have been reading around online and know that it is because of the pressure sensors. I just want to know if I can swap over the sensors from the old tyres into the new ones? Also I know both sets of tyres have rubber valves (Which I believe is where you pump it with air from). Sorry I am new to all of this. I would appreciate it if you could get back to me.

Yes you can swap them over, but the difficulty is in removing the rubber part of sensor, so I would buy 4 of the rubber part of sensors and refit the electronic part of sensors, the 2 parts are held together with a screw.

HI Habeeb,

Its probably a case of the new wheels not having the integrated sensors, either that, or its not got the right configuration for the new tyre size and subsequent pressures.
