Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello...if the tire pressure is the same in all the tires ,the light should go off after you drive the vehicle for a few hundred yards , if the light does not go off ,that means you broke at least one of the sensors that goes on the valve stamp inside the tire.
To fix this you will need to replace this sensor and calibrate it with special tool.
Today most of the independent shops have this tool ,do not need to go the dealer and also the sensor is available after market.
Let me know.
Ok, but the manual says the system needs to be reset by a dealer, so will replacing a broken individual sensor, and having it calibrated, also reset the whole system, or will that light just continue to stay on?
Yes, this helps me understand the Reset issue. How is the broken sensor found? Do the machanics need to remove each tire until they fine the broken sensor, or do they have a method of finding the broken sensor from outside the tire/wheel before dismounting?
Also, if just one sensor is broken, do we have to use a Genuine Nissan part / sensor, or can one aftermarket unit be intigrated with the 3 remaining Nissan units, and work properly? Or Would we have to replace all 4 sensors if we chose an aftermarket product?
