Ford Ranger Tyre Pressure Sensor Malfunction - Disable It?

Are you a Ford Ranger owner troubled by persistent tyre pressure sensor malfunctions?

These sensors, designed to keep you informed about your tyre pressure for safety reasons, can sometimes cause frustration due to erroneous readings or constant alerts.

Read on to learn how to address the malfunctions with these sensors.

Tyre Pressure Sensor Malfunction In Ford Ranger

The Ford Ranger has been a popular choice among ute enthusiasts for its rugged performance and versatility.

However, one recurring issue that has irked some owners is the malfunctioning of the tyre pressure sensors. These sensors are designed to monitor your tyre pressure and alert you when it falls below the recommended levels.

Unfortunately, they can sometimes be prone to inaccuracies or false alarms.

The Ford Ranger Wildtrak, a popular version of the Ranger, is not immune to tyre pressure sensor malfunctions either.

Owners of this variant may also face the same issues with these sensors, leading to frustration and inconvenience.

Common Signs Of Sensor Malfunction

False Alarms

One of the most frustrating issues is when the sensors trigger a warning for low tyre pressure when, in fact, your tyres are perfectly fine.

Constant Alerts

Some owners have reported continuous warning lights on their dashboard, making it difficult to differentiate between actual problems and false alarms.

Inaccurate Readings

Malfunctioning sensors may provide inaccurate readings, which can be a safety hazard, especially on long drives.

How To Disable The Ford Ranger Tyre Pressure Sensors

  1. Turn the key in the ignition to the accessory mode (without starting the engine).
  2. Press the “Menu” button on the steering wheel until you see “Settings” on the dashboard display.
  3. Use the arrow buttons to move down until you find “Driver Assist,” and then press “OK.”
  4. Scroll down and find “Tyre Pressure Monitoring System” and select “OK.”
  5. Select “Off” and press “OK” to confirm.


Dealing with a malfunctioning tyre pressure sensor can be frustrating.

However, with the knowledge of how to disable them, you can regain control and enjoy a more peaceful driving experience.

Remember to check your tyre pressure regularly, even after disabling the sensors, to ensure your safety on the road.
