Tpms fault ford

I’m seeking advice on an issue I’m facing. My dashboard alarm keeps indicating a “tire pressure sensor fault,” even though I’ve confirmed that my tire pressure is correct. Interestingly, I’ve noticed it tends to trigger after driving over bumps. I’m not very familiar with TPMS sensors; is it possible that one of them is loose or prone to failure? Additionally, I have an OBD-II reader but haven’t retrieved any error codes yet. Would using it help identify which sensor is causing the problem?

While your OBD-II reader might not be able to directly access TPMS data, it depends on the year, make, and model of your car. Some newer vehicles allow OBD-II scanners to display TPMS trouble codes, including which specific sensor is causing the issue.

It’s possible that one of the TPMS sensors is malfunctioning. Bumps can sometimes trigger the light if a sensor is loose, damaged, or nearing the end of its lifespan (which is typically around 7-10 years).
