Question about 2008 Nissan Maxima
Posted by Anonymous on
Some cars are very picky when it comes to the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System). First off, reference the tire pressure placard located on the driver side door frame. Theres a little white sticker on the frame of the door that indicates the recommended tire pressure for your vehicle, as well as it is the tire pressure that the TPMS recognizes in order for the light to turn off. Also, make sure your spare tire (if it is a full size spare) is aired up to the recommended pressure as well because some of the newer vehicles have a sensor installed on them too. (Even if its not a full size spare, make sure that it is aired up accordingly as well, because even with new tires, you never know what problems you may run into!) When all else fails, stop by your local dealership to have the TPMS reset manually. In order to reset the sensors, there is a special computer tool required known as a Bartec. If the dealership is unfamiliar with how to reset the sensors (which unfortunately some are) I would recommend stopping by a Discount Tire, or America's Tire if you have one in the area. They are trained to know how to reset the sensors properly. Here are a couple links I pulled up that will hopefully help.
Hope this was helpful!

The light should go out in few miles. make sure that you have 36psi of pressure in all 4 tires. if you don't, add air to 36 psi and drive the car. If you do have 36psi s in all 4 tires, tahn the place that put your tires on may have broke the sensor. start with checking air pressure and making sure that you have 36psi in all 4 tires.
