    The '08 trucks will try to tell you which wheel/tire is low. When you say the tires are perfect, did you check the pressure in all wheels (spare does not has a sensor), the tires may not be aligned with the presure readings

    If you have checked all tires and you are sure the spare is not being used as a running wheel, you probably have a bad sensor in one of the wheels.

    To the best of my knowledge, the system can not be turned off (you can blame Ford and their Explorer for this feature).
