TPMS

How do I know if I have TPMS on my truck or not? A new 2010 XLT... but no mention of it in my discussions - doesn't seem to be a standard item?

If it's a Ranger, then it will have TPMS. Since 2007, TPMS has been on the Rangers lineup.

Your owner's manual will note this "feature."

Sounds like an F150, but yes it will have it - everything does these days. Let some air out of one of your tires and you'll see the light come on in the dash. LR

Do you see this symbol when you turn the ignition key to the "run" position, before you start?

I like Lone Ranger's idea flatten 1 of your tires when the truck is running or the key is on, after the tire pressure gets low the light in the centre of the dash under the speedo should come on.

Protip:

1.) For extra speed, use a 1/2" bit in a cordless drill. Make sure you go through the sidewall.

2.) An indicator light should turn on in the instrument cluster, signalling that you need to buy a new tire.

3.) Repeat on remaining three tires and spare.

4.) Since you've already got your drill out, you might as well test all of your neighbours' TPMS, as well. You care about their safety, too, don't you?

You're .

okay, haha... I could flatten a tire and see... just prefer to not do that since all the gas stations around me charge for using their pumps these days! (although using a drill and them claiming road hazard might be a good test of their roadside assistance too)...
I actually didn't think I had the flat tire symbol light on the dash, hence my question. Oh and it is an F150. Was planning on buying winter tires and trying to decide if I needed new TPMS sensors as well.
