Default Low tire pressure warning

I need some help with low tire pressure indicator.

I bought new 2008 2.5 L Altima Coupe 3 days ago and low tire pressure indicator went off after I drove for couple of miles. I went back to Nissan service and they "reprogrammed" it. Surely enough, it went off again 1 day later...I know there is something about driving it certain speed or something. Does anybody know what is wrong with it? Is this something I can do on my own or should I go to service again?

Until a Specialist replies...Before you take it back, I 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.

Let us know if this works.

I never heard of that procedure, but if it works for others it should wook for you.

Please let us know if it works.
