Silence the "Renew sealant" warning?


Best Answer cr08 , 23 January 2019 - 08:16 AM

No need to do any of that. Simply go into the settings for the reminder interval and toggle between at least two of them to go back and forth and it should clear it.

My 2013 is giving me the "refresh the tire sealant kit" (whatever the wording is) warning every time I turn it on.  How do I silence it?  I do not have Torque or equivalent...

 

Thanks!

Hmm, is there some sort of option on the left display/controls?

 

Otherwise yeah, I think you're going to have to interface with your car or take it to someone else who can.

Yep, this is what fixes it.

I got the warning silenced... but will the sealant kit work after 6 years?

Probably about as well as it did when it was new, so no, not really.

 

It's essentially fix-a-flat, which is not great for small punctures and is almost never going to do you any good if you've hit something that's damaged a tire enough to cause it to quickly lose air.  Oh, and if you use it, you're probably gonna have to get a new TPMS sensor for that wheel.

 

Get roadside assistance that covers towing. 

 

Not having a spare tire is probably the thing I dislike most about the C-Max.  There's no good place to put one even if I get one, and I've had a couple of blowouts that would have taken 10 minutes to deal with if I had a spare tire, but instead took 3 hours waiting on AAA to get a tow truck to me and get towed to a tire shop.

My car's sealant kit had been used, taken, or lost by the time I bought it used, and I haven't bothered to replace it.

I had the opportunity to use the sealant a couple weeks ago when I picked up a screw just as I got on the freeway to head home.  After successfully sealing up the puncture and allowing me to get home on a busy Friday afternoon, I then got tire professionally repaired the next day.  It wasn't necessary to replace the TPMS sensor either.

 

My one word of advice is that if you have to use the sealant system just throw the whole damn thing away, compressor and all, and buy a replacement kit from Slime.  You can actually get the whole Slime mobility kit cheaper than Ford sells just the replacement goop (if you can even find that in stock).

 

Note that I also keep a plug kit in the car but the sealant worked fine.  Either way I'd have it professionally repaired afterwards.

 

Props also to my local service station that has a really neat compressed air system where you set the desired pressure on a digital display, connect the hose to the tire and it automatically pumps it up or down to that setting.  You get plenty of time to do all four tires as well, neat!
