Today we will showing you how to reset the TPMS warning light or reprogram/ pairing the tire pressure sensor to work with your car. This will work on Nissans, Infiniti and someone also said on Hyundai’s but I haven’t tried on a Hyundai. Today we will be showing you how on a 2007 Nissan Sentra. This is helpful if you replace a sensor or switch over to your winter or summer wheels and need to reprogram those TPMS into the car to make the light go out.

So to start we need to set all the tire pressures in each tire at a set pressure that way the car can see where the sensor is located on the car or on which axle. So we need a good and reliable tire pressure gauge. We need to set the left front at 34 psi , the right front 31 psi, the right rear is 29 psi and the left rear will 26 psi. Below is a picture to show you which psi in which tire. You can click it and make it bigger.

 

So we’ll start with the left front and remove the valve stem cap and hook on our gauge and see what are starting pressure is at. Next we can depress the air release on our tire pressure gauge or depress the schrader valve and let air out until we get the pressure down to 34 psi. Once down to 34 psi we can reinstall the valve stem cap so we don’t lose it and move onto the next one.

The next one will be the left rear and repeat the process. Remove cap and hook on our gauge and check our starting pressure and then lower it down to 26 psi. Once we have it down to 26 psi we can reinstall the valve stem cap and move onto the next one.

The next one will be the right front and remove the valve stem cap and put our gauge on and check our starting pressure. Next we’ll need to lower this one down to 31 psi. Once at 31 psi we can reinstall the valve cap.

The next one will be the right rear and remove the valve stem cap and put our gauge on and check our starting pressure. Next we’ll need to lower this one down to 29 psi. Once at 29 psi we can reinstall the valve cap.

Once we have all the tire pressures set to the correct pressure we can go to the drivers side and open the door. With the door open we can kneel outside the car. Its nice to have something to kneel on such as a pad. Next you can try just removing the small flip down door or fuse box cover and locating the wire we need. On some cars and to make it easier for you to see we removed the entire kick plate. On this car removing that was easy as it was all just push pins/ clips and phillips screws on the bottom.

So now that we have the kick plate removed we can locate the TPMS test lead/ wire. On this car its a blue wire some will have a white wire but most cars will have a white connector at the end. It could be lose hanging near the OBD2 port or could be taped up near or on the OBD2 wires. So  once we locate the white connector/ wire you will need a paper clip, small wire or something to stick in there that is an conductor.

Next we take our wire or paper clip and stick it into the connector on the side with the metal or side with the wire in it. Next we can turn the key to the ON position and then do the next step within 15-20 seconds of turning the key on. The next step is to take the paper clip and touch it to ground 6 to 10 times or how ever many times it take to make the light stay on steady. You will notice we use the head of a bolt or screw as that seems to work best. Once we have the light staying on steady we can touch it one more time to make the light start blinking again. That will put it into learn mode.

Once we have the light blinking again we can now start the car and drive it. We’ll try and keep the speed around 30 mph. After about a half mile our light went solid real quick and then went out. Meaning that the car has accepted the tpm sensors. So we know by the time we drive back to the shop the light will come back on because of the low tire pressure. You could stop at a gas station and put the correct tire pressure in. So we got back to the shop and looked inside the driver’s door jam to see this vehicles correct tire pressure. For this one its 33 psi front and back. So we got our tire pressure gauge back out and filled each tire back up to 33 psi.

Once we have the correct tire pressure in each tire if your car is new enough it will have the tpms self check and the light should go out. If its older like this one we will need to drive the car for a bit so it can recheck the tire pressures and then the light should go out. Once we have the light out we can reinstall the lower kick plate and the 2 screws. Once you have the kick plate on we can slide the fuse cover or flip down door click in the bottom and slide it in.

With the kick panel and flip down door reinstalled that’s it we just showed you how to reset a TPMS warning Light On A Nissan and Infiniti with no tools.

2005 Nissan Frontier had the light on for 3 yrs. no one could fix it, when I saw your video, I decided to try it. I put the tires on the tire pressure u said and it work, the light was blinking drove for 5 miles and the light kept blinking, so I went to a gas station to put air in tires and turn the truck on and the light went steady once again. can u help me? thanks.

Check the door jam of the truck and make sure you have correct amount of air in the tires. If you do and the light is still on you have a faulty sensor or a sensor with a dead battery. I use a https://amzn.to/2Mba5Hw to tell what sensor is bad or has a dead battery you can also program the new sensor into the truck and it can be an aftermarket one or an OEM one it does both.
