Not too sure that this is the answer you are looking for, but i found this video on "the tube" about resetting the tpms --


You may have seen it already but it could help others that come across the warning light.

Thanks Wiggy, I know how to do that, but it won't work if a sensor is missing.

The Puma was superb Hywel, But I would need to sell the B Max privately to get to the price agreed and might find that a bit tricky in a lockdown. Also with Europe going into gradual lockdown, whist Ford estimate delivery mid December, I can see myself waiting months before it is built or shipped It's a lovely solid car though and makes the B Max feel more like a tin can by comparison. The regenerative braking is interesting, especially in sport mode, but does seem strange when it slows down so quickly when you take your foot off the accelerator.

I've loved every minute I spent with the B-MAX though and am quite happy to stick with it for a while longer as apart from needing to replace the tyre valve it really is as good as new.

Tyre warning light is back BTW

If I had a spare tyre, then maybe Wiggy, but I'm just inclined to have a new valve put in at my next service. I've put a lid on the Puma deal due to the health situation as 1. I won't be able to sell the B Max in lockdown and 2. I have no confidence in the Puma being delivered for several months. Will see how things look next year
