how would you know if the tpms sensor is bad?

Postby nissanrogue16 » Tue Feb 04, 2020 7:07 pm

have the low pressure light on for the pass rear tire, aired it up but light is still on, what are recommendations? thanks for you help in advance, did buy a new sensor but unsure if it will sync with the other tpms sensors.

You need to drive it for a few miles and it will go off.

Usually, once you inflate your tires with more air, the tire pressure light should go off. Drive at or above 50 mph to reset the sensor for 10 minutes. This should cause your sensor to reset.

If the battery in the sensor has finally died then the light will NOT go off, time for new sensor. The BCM will output code showing it cannot read it due to no sending the signal, but you have to get into it to read that code, or use a scanner that reads chassis codes too.

Early sensors like my '11 Versa the light goes off with simply airing tire up high enough. Later cars though must spin the tires to get them to read, they are not powered up until centrifugal force turns them on, it makes battery last longer.

Most new sensors must be 'switched on' when installed then registered to the BCM, both things are done when the sensor gets installed, tireshops wave a wi-fi device over them to do it.

2016 nissan rogue tire pressure warning, is it the TPMS sensor? drove 50 mph for a reset

Warning light stays on, would it be two bad speed sensors or a TPMS sensor missing altogether?

Hi,
First off. The two tires not reporting PSI could be any two. How can that be? When wheels are rotated, the position is no longer correct on the dash screen unless the ECM is reprogrammed with the new locations. How do I know? I just rotated my tires on my 2018 and had to buy the tools to reprogram the ECM. So with that knowledge, can you confirm that no tire work was done just before this happened? Example, new tires or snows installed? It appears like the TPMS IDs stored in the ECM for two of the four tires no longer matches. Your car isn't that old, so I doubt failing TPMS batteries.

Missing, wrong type or a mismatch with the stored IDs. TPMS ID management (ex. updating wheel location and ID numbers) is not automatic on these cars.

Would these oem ebay sensors work on the 2016 rogue and would these have to be programed?

Tedc, bro, what type scanner would you recommend to relearn for these sensors? Bought the Rogue used so not sure if previous owner swapped wheels with another vehicle. I know the rear tires are pretty bad so I’ll have them replaced ASAP.

OK, so this is an issue since you purchased it. All makes sense now. I use the Autel TS401 with the ATEQ Quickset. I suggest you have a tire shop program the new sensors to match what is already stored in the ECM. They can read the TPMS IDs from the ECM and program two new TPMS valves with those IDs. If they use non-programmable TPMS valves, then those IDs need to be written to the ECM for the correct tire locations. Remember what I shared above, just because the dash shows rear tires, that can be misleading.
