I hope everyone is aware that when the temperature drops, the pressure drops as well. About 1 psi for every 10°F.
Also, running a tire generates heat, so the pressure rises as well!
So if you are reporting that cold weather is triggering your system and driving a few miles turns it off - well, it sounds like the system is working perfectly and so are the laws of Physics.
If you want to stop the system from being triggered, start off with more pressure.

Or just wait for the next TPMS's firmware version to have OAT compensation.

I too have a 2006 Ford Explorer Eddy Baure Edition V8 4.6 liter. I have gotten a Tire sensor fault warning since I got the Vehicle. Had tires rotated and took it to a car washed and a high pressure wash was used in each wheel well. It worked for a while then now it comes on intermittent. At first each time I started the engine it would come on and I would reset it and it would be fine till the next time I started my engine. Now it is intermittent. Sometimes it comes on while I am driving and pushing reset will fix it, sometimes when I start the engine. Two questions? What is going on and where is the main sensor/monitor unit located?
