Ask Your Own Ford Question

What type of tool did you use to reset TPMS? Do you have a scan tool?

Do you have a scan tool to run a smart junction box test? The flashing dome light usually indicates a module that is not fully set up.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

H​ere is smart junction box replacement, this procedure needs to be done with a scan tool in order to clear the faults. Here is the shop manual procedure. I am not sure how this happened, is this your personal car or a customers car?

customers car

I wonder if someone replaced the smart junction box trying to fix the TPMS light, since it is built in, and now the dome lights are flashing because the module is not configured.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
tried the modus also

Ok you ran a self test, cleared the codes, rotated the dimmer switch, and then tried a TPMS reset.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

Does the vehicle enter the training for tpms?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it entered reset mode, showed training complete, then dome light flashes and says tire monitor fault

Ok, then run smart junction box self test, clear codes, and rotate dimmer and see if the light goes off, it will not go off until all of this has been done. Let me know what happens.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
has been done codes cleared, dimmer on dimmer off reset mode TPMS nothing changes

Are there any codes stored in the smart junction box?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no codes well tpms monitor fault
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Thanks we will continue trying to figure It out

O​k I am wondering if there was any asbuilt data entered into this module at all, if not, it doesn't even know what car it belongs to. These modules need to be programmed to the vehicle, for some reason the module that is in there hasn't been programmed possibly and just continues to flash.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
