There are a few steps that need to be followed in order to turn this warning light off and they are all contained in your owner's manual. If you don't have a manual for your car let me know and I can walk you through it.

Help with learn mode.How to? sorry,it's a 2007 versa sl hatchback,not a sentra.


To activate a new transmitter in the tire pressure monitoring system WITHOUT the Nissan Consult scan tool: Under the dash above the OBD II connector is a single wire connector called the "tire pressure warning check connector". Use a jumper wire and ground the tire pressure warning check connector with the key OFF. Then turn the key ON and cycle the ground at the tire pressure warning check connector 5 times within 10 seconds of turning the key ON. This should cause the tire pressure monitor light to start flashing indicating the system is in "learn mode". Then use the activation tool starting at the left front tire and work around the vehicle in a clockwise direction - front left, front right, rear right and rear left. Activating each transmitter at each wheel should make the turn signal flash one time and after completing all 4 wheels, the turn signals should flash two times and all 4 time pressures should be displayed.

When i hit the acceleration my cougar seems to pull to tha left...


here are some common causes and solutions to your problem.

1. wheel alignment. go to your nearest tire service center and have your wheel alignment and wheel camber checked.
2. Tire pressure. perhaps the tire pressure in your left tire is much lower than the pressure on the right tires.
3. if your vehicle is a rear wheel drive vehicle, although very uncommon, the problem can be on the differential. differential is the device that makes the movements on your wheels syncronized even during on turns.

Tyre pressure warning light showing when pressures are correct


Hi, the tire pressure monitor detects any changes in the tire inflation pressure. Therefore, it must initialize and store it in its memory if the tires or wheels have been replaced, re-inflated or the tires have been rotated. You can re-initialize the system by following these steps:

1. Check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure

2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (in the glove box) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.

3. Now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.

4. Initialization is *not* completed until driving at the vehicle speed of 19 mph or over for more than one hour. the tire pressure monitoring starts when initialization is completed.

2010 Honda Civic Hybrid...Tire Low light came on...I continued to drive and the tire lost more air. Then a horrible sound came along. It sounds like something hitting the wheel well. I thought for sure...


Try to do your inflations when the tires are as close to cold as possible, ie: at the closest practical gas station. The further you've driven the more they will warm up. The tire pressure spec. on the sticker in door well is cold pressure. In a pinch when putting in air after driving a "fair" distance, go 2~4 lbs. over, and then recheck when cold.

Also, how good is your gauge? Are you using your own, or the gas station's, or just that funky thing on the pump hose?

Also, consider bumping them up, say to around 40 lbs (verify the max pressure indicated on the sidewall is still higher, likely 44). This will be more likely to rule out measurement inaccuracies, and improve your mileage as well. The only downside is a harsher ride.

Please check for the following conditions:
* Low tire pressures. Raise the tire pressure to a "recommended" setting, preferably close to or at the tire's maximal pressure rating.
* Perform a four wheel alignment and look for signs of unusual tire wear.
* Add additional insulation to the rear passenger and cargo area of the vehicle.
* Check for a defect in the rear control arms as identified in service bulletin 08-001 affecting primarily 2006 and 2007 models. This defect is responsible for abnormal tire wear, noisy operation and even responsible for poor directional tracking at highway speeds.


Keep us updated; hope helps.

Service tire monitor on what is the problem? how do you reset the system?


TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR SYSTEM
The Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) uses radio and sensor technology to check tire pressure levels. If your vehicle has this feature, sensors are mounted on each tire and wheel assembly, except the spare tire. The TPMS sensors monitor the air pressure in your vehicle's tires and transmit tire pressure readings to a receiver located in the vehicle.

The TPMS is designed to alert the driver, if a low tire pressure condition exists. This system also allows the driver to check tire pressure levels using the Driver Information Center (DIC).

When a low tire pressure condition is detected, the TPMS displays the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" warning message on the DIC, and at the same time illuminates the low tire pressure warning symbol.

You may notice, during cooler weather conditions, that the tire pressure monitor light, located on the instrument panel cluster, and the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" message will appear when the vehicle is first started and then turn off as you start to drive the vehicle. This could be an early indicator that the tire pressures are getting low and need to be inflated to the proper pressure.

Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper inflation pressure for those tires.)

As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.

Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle's handling and stopping ability.

Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver's responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.

The "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" warning message and low tire pressure light (telltale) will appear at each ignition cycle until the tires are inflated to the correct inflation pressure.

The Tire and Loading Information label (tire information placard) shows the size of your vehicle's original tires and the correct inflation pressure for your vehicle's tires when they are cold.

Your vehicle's TPMS can alert you about a low tire pressure condition but it does not replace normal tire maintenance.

NOTICE: Do not use a tire sealant if your vehicle has Tire Pressure Monitors. The liquid sealant can damage the tire pressure monitor sensors.

RESETTING THE TPMS IDENTIFICATION CODES
Each TPMS sensor has a unique identification code. Any time you rotate your vehicle's tires or replace one or more of the TPMS sensors, the identification codes will need to be matched to the new tire/wheel position. Each tire/wheel position is matched to a sensor, by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure. The sensors are matched to the tire/wheel positions in the following order: LF TIRE (left front tire on the driver's side of the vehicle), RF TIRE (right front tire on the passengers side of the vehicle), RR TIRE (right rear tire on the passengers side of the vehicle), and LR TIRE (left rear tire on the driver's side of the vehicle).

You will have one minute to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than one minute, to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five minutes to match all four tire and wheel positions the matching process stops and you will need to start over.

The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:
  1. Set the parking brake.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to "RUN" with the engine off.
  3. Turn the headlamp switch from "OFF" to the parking lamps setting four times within three seconds. A double horn chirp will sound and the TPMS low tire warning light will begin to flash. The double horn chirp and flashing TPMS warning light indicate that the TPMS matching process has started. The TPMS warning light should continue flashing throughout the matching procedure. The "SERVICE TIRE MONITOR" message will be displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC).
  4. Start with the driver's side front tire.
  5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure for 10 seconds, then stop and listen for a single horn chirp. The single horn chirp should sound within 15 seconds, confirming that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position. If you do not hear the confirming single horn chirp, you will need to start over with Step 1. To let air-pressure out of a tire you can use the pointed end of the valve cap, a pencil-style air pressure gage or a key.
  6. Proceed to the passenger's side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  7. Proceed to the passenger's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  8. Proceed to the driver's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  9. After hearing the confirming horn chirp for the left rear tire, check to see if the TPMS warning light is still flashing. If it is, turn the ignition switch to LOCK to exit the sensor matching process. If the TPMS warning light is not flashing, the five minute time limit has passed and you will need to start the process over beginning with Step 1.
  10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
  11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems. The spare tire does not have a TPMS sensor. If you replace one of the road tires with the spare, the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" message will be displayed on the DIC screen. This message should go off once you re-install the road tire containing the TPMS sensor. The "SERVICE TIRE MONITOR" message is displayed when the TPMS is malfunctioning. One or more missing or inoperable TPMS sensors will cause the service tire monitor message to be displayed.

After flat tire, tire pressure warning will not go out even after making sure pressure is at 44psi. How do I reset dash?


44PSI?? is that what your car recommends...


1. check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure

2. turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (think the switch is in the glovebox, but not sure) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.

3. now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.

Low tire pressure warning


Look under the steering wheel~way up under the dash there is on some Pontiacs a reset button. It is usually yellow. If this does not work you can try disconnecting the battery to clear the ECM.

That isn't the light for low tire pressure. Low tire pressure will have what looks like a tire- flat. It is your VSA someone probably hit the button and accidentally. look to the left of your steering wheel there is a button that says VSA push it and see if it turns it off. I notice that this post is pretty old, so you may already have gotten the answer from your dealer, but I'm posting in case someone has the same problem later on.

Tires


There's nothing wrong with driving on wide tires in the rain. As long as the tires have sufficient tread and are not rated for extreme performance (aka track use), and have a decent wet weather traction rating, you'll be fine. Your Lincoln will have tires that are fine for rain. 235-section tires are by no means a wide tire. Chances are you had insufficient tread depth, hit deep standing water, were traveling too fast for the amount of rain and/or water on the road, or any combination of those factors. I ran 285-section width tires on the rear of my 500hp Nissan Z car, and had no trouble with rain as long as the tread depth was sufficent. When the tire tread got low (as happened fairly often), then I really had to watch it, as the car would oversteer suddenly when I hit almost any amount of standing water. Believe me though - Lincoln makes no model (and never has in its entire history) that "is not supposed to be driven in the rain" - those kinds of warnings are exclusive to companies like Ferrari, whose cars are more or less race cars with license plates.
