    I'm not 100% sure when the changeover happens with the Taurus. I know on my old Mustang, 2010 was the last year of the strap TPMS sensors and 2011 was the first of the valve stem style.

    If you can get confirmation, I have a full set of the strap style I'd sell for $25 shipped. One worm gear needs replaced but all 4 sensors are in good condition, came off a GT500.

    Damn Lee, you should honestly put out a list of your personal inventory. Bet you could make a killing.

    I had this same issue when I purchased my aftermarket wheels.

    Car came with bandee style TPMS sensors. Was told the valve stems sensors would program just fine. Well, nope. They didn't.

    Had to purchase the banded style, and sell the valve stem ones.

    Anyhow, in 2010, there was a "Job 1" and a "Job 2" production run.

    You can tell the difference in the inclusion (or omission) of the trunk lid pull down strap.

    IIRC the change over in TPMS sensors occured in the final 3 to 4 months of the 2010 production runs.

    I am not readily aware of any 2011's or up, that had the bands.

    Of course you can just side step all of the above and have the tire dismounted from the wheel. You'll be able to tell then. Ha!

    I don't think mine has a strap, so strap = bands or the other way around?
    Anything in Forscan that would tell?
    As much as I like to investigate, I rather not disassemble any of my tires... although one of them has something lose inside, might be a good opportunity to find out what's in there.

    Look at your valve stems. Is there thread and a smooth brass shank before it turns to rubber? Does the cap just cover the threads?

    If you have threads and smooth brass then rubber you most likely dont have band style tpms.

    If you post your vin number there may be some people that look up what HVBOM days about your car, or the parts catalog. Shoot you might be able to put your vin in the Ford parts website and find out.

    I did a quick search using my VIN and only strap sensors came up :(
    I'll look into taking one tire off and see.

    Does the TPMS relearn tool (which I bought last year) works with the strap type?

    It's a ford tool so you should be good especially if it activates your curent sensors

    The Winter tires I bought were brand new on alloy rims, apparently the set was prepared for someone else and then it sat unsold so I got it for less than half the price. They said it had sensors but didn't know if they were GM or Ford so I bought the tool to see if I was able to program them, it did not work. So I've never had to use that tool for my all season set.

    Apr 2010 production and older = band type TPMS
    May 2010 and newer = stem type
    Some of the aftermarket stem sensors can be programmed with a special tool to work with either system. This is NOT the cheap TPMS activation tool that you hold by the tire.
    Many of the band sensors have been discontinued. They can be found, but are expensive. Find a dealer that carries a line of programmable stem sensors and can program the correct sensor for the early 2010. I have 9 year old band sensors on my 2010 and when the tires get hot, they trigger the dash indicator. The batteries get weak over time and the sensors need rebuilding/replacement. Schrader lists the 33500 as an programmable replacement. Autel makes a line of sensors and programmers that seem to be relatively economical.
