Re: TLC Light is on after rotating the tires
You may have some uneven wear on your tires. If your tires have more than 1/4" difference in circumference (distance around the tire) the tires could be spinning at different speeds making your cars computer think that you are losing traction.

Sorry if I do not understand but if you are talking about tire pressure on a vehicle. I think every car I have ever had give the maximum tire pressure on the side wall of the tire. I have never put the maximum tire psi in any of my vehicles. My truck says 44 PSI Max but I only put 36 in it. My cars I put 32 psi. If you have low profile tires I have never had them can not help. In general the tire I buy are 32 -34 never had the special tires, I have been driving for 46 years now. Sorry if I have not helped in some way.
It is supposed to reset automatically when driving after you pump the tires back up above the minimum threshold pressure. However this does not always work.
What you need to do now to reset it is to pump all the tires up around 6 - 8 lbs psi above where they are now when COLD (up to 40 lbs psi COLD on each tire is fine). Then drive around for a few miles and the warning light should reset. Then when the tires are cold drop the pressure to around 36 psi cold or a higher pressure setting if you prefer. If you don't have your own tire pressure gauge then go to an auto store and buy one as good gauges are not expensive.. (Just avoid the cheap plastic ones).
The TPMS sensors fitted to the wheels can be erratic and whilst they are supposed to trigger when a low pressure is reached, the minimum pressure can vary significantly for the same model sensors fitted to different cars of the same brand/model/year.
It's your TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system). It's indication that one or more of your tire air pressure is low and you need to make sure all your tires are the same air pressure.
Sit in the passengers seat, open the glove compartment, there should be a switch to your left (closer to the center consol but in the glove compartment.) 42 PSI is recommended i believe but i always had mine at 36 front and back, just remember to rotate your tires every 5000 miles. Good luck and thank you for using fixya.
This is a driver preference issue the tire manufacturer always recomends higher air pressures because they want you to obtain optimum performance, the car company manufacturer recomends the tire pressure that will give the smoothest ride I prefer the middle of the two, tire companies 40 psi automobile companies 28 - 32 psi I recommend 36 psi all around front and back.
You cannot reset them,Make sure that you check the pressures in the tires. The Infiniti Tire Pressure Monitoring System is designed to trip the warning light anytime the pressure in any of the tires drops below 29 psi. At 29 psi it really won't look like the tires are low. You could have one tire at 29 or 28 causing the light to stay on all the time. Check your pressures, set at 34 or 35 to be safe, or whatever pressure the tire is recommended to be. Not all infiniti vehicles with TPMS have the display that shows the pressure in each tire. If the pressures are above 29 psi, Then there could be an issue with one or more of the sensors. If you have the tires replaced you will have to have the sensors relearned at the dealer. Tire rotations do not require the same.
