TPMS Light wont turn off...Help

Ive adjusted all of my tires multiple times. Been to the Nissan dealership twice and they did the same thing, even reset it, but it is still on. Anybody else had this issue and how did you deal with it?

No. All my tires have been stable for awhile now. Sitting on 35 psi.

O ok, just a thought. Im not sure what the issue is. then id i can also only assume you have taking the car out multiple times too freeway speeds.

only other option you have is to contact the dealer and tell them whatever they did; did not fix the issue.

found this. worth a shot.
sounds like 35psi is the lower limit of the sensors.
Quote:
Found references to three separate problems with the TPMS light coming on. They all followed this solution - no problems since.

TPMS light "on"
All tires at 32 psi
Started filling each tire to 40 psi
Left front to 40 psi-light still "on"
Left rear to 40 psi-light still "on"
Right front to 40 psi- LIGHT GOES OUT!
Dropped all 4 tires to 30 psi and light stays out.
Quote:
The thing is this... The TPMS sensor the technican said is set to 35 psi. The stock tires recommened is 35 PSI... with a max of 40 PSI.

The solution over inflate the tires between the recommened and max... 38,39,40... Dealership did 40 (I asked how they fixed it thats what they said). Everytime I get an oil change I get it set to 38. Haven't seen the light since.

They said they WILL NOT change the TPMS to do less then 35 PSI.

so that would mean perhaps that somehow certain sensors are calibrated differently some how

they got the light to go out, but it came right bac on. I will try to overflate them and see if that does the trick.

You are just raising the PSI, to be considered over inflated i would think you have to exceed the maximum PSI rating for the tire.

I am having the same issue. When the light first came on, I took my car to America's tire and they said they were all at 26 psi....so it made sense that the light came on. I then had them filled to 32 psi (per the door jam) but the light will not go off. I will be taking my car into Nissan on Monday. I spoke to the Nissan Service tech and was told this happens "a lot".

did you try more than 32? i.e. 35?

and I don't think going above the maximum is a good idea...

I've had this happen.. ended up being the computer.. they replaced it and wanted to blame it on the remote start and charge me for it, but the remote start had been in for a year before the tpms light ever started having issues so after arguing they finally put it under the warranty.. that was gonna be around $1000 if I had to pay for it, and would have been pissed.
