Tire pressure sensor failure

(2004 Lincoln Aviator)
in Phoenix, AZ on August 27, 2009
We put new wheels/tires on our aviator when purchased but saved factory wh/tires. Now have put back on factory wheels/tires but don't know how to "hook up" tire pressure sensor indicator so we are getting a failure message constantly. Does anyone know how to hook this up when installing new wheels/tires so the sensor works properly?

The sensor is in the valve stems, they are actually little transmitters. Then you have to calibrate the system. many tire shops ruin the valves and they have to be replaced. ($$) Hope that this helps.
