Short term fix would be to bump up your tire pressure and see if the light goes out. Otherwise she is a trip to the dealer.

I have the same problem, I do have HIDs but they do not run all the time and this problem has been happening before I installed them. I am not under warranty any longer... any other suggestions?

Man, a 2012 out of warranty already? You could test each individual TPMS sensor by use of a tester. That will tell you if your TPMS sensors are bad which I think is the cause for your light.

I had this same issue, turns out on the 2012 the standard PSI is 40 , once you are at 40 there is a + / - of 5 psi

if you drop below 35psi the light comes on (in my case the EVIC notified me) once the PSI was brought back upto 40 it went away.

Took the dealer nearly 4 days to figure it out they kept saying that 37 PSI was the correct pressure but that was on the 2011 model and since I dropped below 35 and triggered the warning they never brought it back above 40 to reset the sensor. finally they called Chyrsler, what was really funny is it's listed on the door what the PSI should be

Ya I bought it used last year and it had 29k miles on it but I got a great deal so I cant complain. I talked to the dealership the other day about testing it and they said that it is a radio signal so there is no way to use a fluke meter on it or anything like I thought. Then they said that they were the only ones that could test it, for $90!!! So what I thought I would try is rotating the tires and if the problem follows it then its the one in the tire. If it is the rear drivers side again then I know its the channel in the receiver.

You join the forum just to insult people with comments while hiding behind the screen or are you just a very miserable troll driving a Ford??

It takes only 5 minutes per tire to test a TPMS sensor. Those damn crooks! Hey good luck bud and hope you find the faulty sensor. Your local auto store might diagnose a TPMS sensor for free. Ya never know.
