Bought a Veracruz GLS 2008. Since day one, the TPMS (Tire Pressure) warning light turns on when I drive. It will flicker, and then stay lit, turning off during the drive and then sometimes turning back on. I've brought into the dealership for service, and they couldn't detect anything wrong with the tires, and reset the TPMS module. However, the warning light continues to turn on and off. Is this safe to drive?

Re: Hyundai Veracruz GLS 2008 Tire Pressure problem
Keep taking it back to the dealer until the fix it or give you a new car. Not that it's an immediate safety issue, it's just something that's supposed to be functioning properly. They have to address it because cars are legally required to have TPMS systems for safety. If a safety mehanism fails in your car, you can claim it is a safety issue. If you keep having problems with the TPMS light, you'll eventually ignore it. Then one day you'll have a tire going flat and you wouldn't know it.

1) go to a gas station with an air pump. Unless u have an inflator/compressor at home with the tireattachment
2) lower all 5 air pressures including the spare in the trunk to maybe about 28 PSI
3) now reset the TPMS (on the 07 there is a button to "calibrate" the TPMS and it is located under the dash. I presume it is the same on the 08.)
4) now bring the pressue back up to 30/32 or whatever it says on the door area
If this doesn't work, it is possible u have a defective TPMS
but my bet right now would be that someone "calibrated" the TPMS to the current tire pressure so the light is constantly on. It happened to me before when my daughter was messing around and hit that button.
TPMS - TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR WARNING LIGHT NOTE: Tire pressure rises and falls depending on heat caused by vehicle's operation and the outside temperature. If outside temperature is low, the air inside the tire may cool, causing a lower tire inflation pressure. This may cause the low tire pressure warning light to illuminate.
When the tire pressure warning light comes on, immediately check the air pressure of all tires and adjust to the specified pressure. Make sure the warning light goes off. If the warning light stays on or flashes, there is a malfunction in the TPM system. See appropriate manufacturer service information.

If you are referring to the TPMS light (warning light), there isn't one. The procedure requires the use of a system (computer) called the GDS (Global Diagnostic System). Only the Hyundai Dealerships have this system (proprietary). If you are referring to a 'Low Tire Pressure" warning light, simply raise the pressure in each tire to the manufacturer's recommended minimum pressure (psi - between 30 & 35 psi). The low tire pressure light will turn off after 5 minutes of driving.
"TPMS" light when ON indicates that the tyre pressure monetering system is malfunctioning. One or more of the TPMS components may experience failure. Vehicle should be driven to the authorized dealer for service. This warning is different from "underinflation" warning, also found on the dashboard in shape of deflated tire with "!" in the middle. hope this helps
You have problem with the tire pressure. The nissan pathfinde have a TIME PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) That means: This systems monitoring the pressure warning light iluminates, check the tire pressure in all four tires. Adjust the low pressure to the recommended cold tire pressure shown on theTire and Loading Information label located in the driver's door opening. After the pressure are adjusted, the vehicle will need to be driven at speed above 16 MPH (25 km/h) to activate the TPMS and turn off the low pressure warning light.
Check the tire pressure at the valve mounted to the wheel. There is a warning light on the instrument cluster to warn of low tire pressure. On a 2009 Maxima, if your warning light comes on check and adjust, if needed, the tire pressures at all 4 wheels. If the pressures were low the light will go out after a short distance. If the light fails to go out take the Maxima to your local Nissan dealer.
