Exclamation XTerra Flashing Low Tire Pressure Light

Hello out there While driving, the low tire pressure light on my Xterra started flashing. All tire pressure levels are fine, and I was told there is a problem with the sensors. My mechanic wanted to charge me $$$ to check and reset. I was told the only thing this light/sensor does is monitor tire pressure. I do not wish to pay for the tire babysitter! I'll use the old-fashioned tire gauge to monitor. Is there a way to manually disconnect this? Or is this something only a shop can do? Thank you.

Unfortunately there is no way to disconnect the system. By law all vehicles must have a tire monitor system.

if the sensor is bad it will come back, I would call local tire shops and see how has a TPMS reader, the battery might be low one or more sensor if the light comes back on

Default TPMS light stays on or blinking

The sensors average life span is about 3-5 years until they can come out with a better battery. There are sites like Titan TPMS Tire Pressure Sensors that sell the sensors way cheaper than dealerships.

Are the TPMS difficult to change?
Thank you.

Not at all. I watched the tire shop by my house do it in under 20 minutes. They dismount the tire and break the bead an then the stem screws onto the sensor. Just make sure not to over torque it when screwing it on. Every car has its own relearn procedure. With mine it was just driving a few miles and then my tpms light went off and it was done.

Awesome! Thanks for the tip jay_r00, now wondering if I could pull the tires from the wheels, may be a project for the tire shop but worth a try! Thanks

If you don't have a tire machine, then you should take the wheels to a shop and have them do it. There are two types of sensors...those that come in "sleep mode" that have to be woke up using a trigger tool and those that are ready to program. I usually use Dorman Direct-fit TPMS sensors from Rockauto because they have a lifetime warranty and are half the price of Nissan sensors, but they do have to be waken with a trigger tool. A TPMS trigger tool can be purchased for around $35. The TPMS system needs to be put into program made, which can be done by shorting the TPMS diagnostic connector (by the OBD II connector) 6 times within 10 secs and either using the trigger tool at each wheel (LF-RF-RR-LR) or without the trigger tool by driving the car with the tires set (in that same order) 36 psi, 33 psi, 30 psi and 27 psi. If you do a search on YouTube, you find vids on the procedure.

Definitely worth the money to have the shop do it. It costed me 40$ and they had it done quick.
