Good question, don't think i have ever been asked this one.the tire pressure is monitored not by a pressure sensor inside the tire on a pathfinder but by the wheel speed, each wheel hub ( the thing the wheel bolts to ) has a speed sensor and the on-board computer is allwise monitoring the wheel speed, if one tire gets low on air it will be slightly smaller in diameter, so this will cause that one hub sensor to allwise read a slightly higher speed than all the other sensors so if the computer keeps seeing one wheel reading a little faster then all the other wheel sensors wile the car is going strate down the road it will them assume that that tire is low on air and turn on the low tire light. now some of your high doller cars do have sensors inside the tires but those cars do not have spair tires ( have you ever seen a spair on a corvett?) and those setups have specal made tires and wheels for this system.....so as you can see the spair is not bolted to a hub so the car doset care if its flat or not, but you will if you ever need it, so ckeck the air in the spair.

Tire pressure light comes on


You shouldn't be setting the tire pressure to the max inflation pressure listed on the sidewall, that will likely result in uneven tire wear with the center of the tire wearing out prematurely. You should set the pressures according to the listings in the door jam. Most likely 32-34psi. Also, have you checked the spare tire? Some systems monitor and will illuminate the TPMS light if the spare tire pressure isn't within an acceptable range. The spare is often overlooked when checking tire pressures because of a TPMS indicator.

Your nissan also has a tire monitor on your spare tire if your spare has low pressure and the other 4 tires have correct pressure the light will stay on . after you ajust the spare also the light should go away.
