The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) monitors tire pressure. A low tire pressure warning light will illuminate when one or more tires are low on pressure and air is needed.
Adjust the low tire pressure to the recommended COLD tire pressure shown on the Tire and Loading Information label.
After the tire pressures are adjusted, drive the vehicle at speeds above 16 miles per hour. The warning and indicator light will disappear.
If the low tire pressure warning light flashes for approximately one minute and then remains on after you turn the ignition ON, the TPMS is not functioning properly. Have the system checked by a NISSAN dealer.
Tire pressure rises and falls depending on the heat caused by the vehicle’s operation and the outside temperature. Low outside temperature can lower the temperature of the air inside the tire, which can cause a lower tire inflation pressure. This may cause the low tire pressure warning light to illuminate.
If the warning light illuminates, check the tire pressure in your tires (including the spare tire). Check your tire pressure often and always prior to long distance trips.
The Tire and Loading Information label provides important information at a glance. It lists proper tire size and pressure. It also lists the maximum number of occupants for your vehicle and its maximum load capacity.
Please see your Owner’s Manual for the location of the Tire and Loading Information label on your vehicle.
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System does NOT detect a sudden drop in tire pressure as with a tire blowout and it is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance.
When adding air to an under-inflated tire, the TPMS with Easy Fill Tire Alert provides visual and audible signals outside the vehicle to help you inflate the tires to the recommended COLD tire pressure.
To use this system, park the vehicle in a safe and level place, move the shift selector to the PARK position, then apply the parking brake.
Place the ignition switch in the ON position, but do not start the engine. Add air to the tire and after a few seconds, the hazard indicators will start flashing.
If the hazard indicator does not flash within approximately 15 seconds after starting to inflate the tire, it indicates that the Easy Fill Tire Alert is not operating.
After the correct tire pressure is reached, the horn beeps once and the hazard indicators stop flashing.
If the tire is over-inflated more than approximately 4 pounds per square inch, the horn beeps and the hazard indicators flash 3 times.
To correct this, push the core of the valve stem on the tire briefly to release the pressure. When the pressure reaches the correct level, the horn beeps once.
