How to Monitor Tires on 2018 Ford F-250 with TST Tire Pressure Monitoring System for Trailer

Question:

I just installed the TST-507-FT-4-C system and its monitoring my trailer tires nicely. My 2018 Ford F250 comes with its own TPMS for the tires on the truck. Do you know if I can monitor the truck tires using the currently installed TPMS sensors, and how I go about doing that? I tried to synch the truck tire mounted sensors with the monitoring system but it doesnt seem to find the sensors. Im hoping you know how to accomplish this. Thanks.

The TPMS on your 2018 Ford F-250 are using their own system and it won't be compatible with the TST TPMS # TST-507-FT-4-C that you are using for your trailer. If you wanted to use the TST to monitor the tires on your F-250 as well then you'll need to install some TST sensors on your truck tires. You can either use more of the Flow Through Sensors # TST-507-FT-S2 (which comes with a quantity of 2 sensors) or you could mount the Internal Sensor # TST-507-INT-S1 on all 4 wheels but this option would be a bit more costly as you'd have to pay an auto tire shop to help you with that and I'm not sure how the Ford TPMS system mounts so it may not be compatible.
