Let's start with the obvious, "I put more air in a couple of the tires. None looked like they were losing air though." Did you actually check them before adding air? You need to get a quality tire pressure gauge to make sure each tire is inflated properly.2009 Indigo Blue wrote:Since almost when I first bought my Rogue in 2008, the tire pressure warning light went on literally every few weeks, so I'd put more air in & it would be good for a short while. This past summer (2012), I finally got 4 new tires because a screw...not a nail, but a screw was in my tire. NO pressure warning light...then, the light finally went on for the first time last week! WHY?! These are brand new tires only a few months old. I put more air in a couple of the tires. None looked like they were losing air though. But this is the first time the light didn't go off since I added some air. Now, the light has stayed on permanently.
What can I do? The Nissan dealership where I get all my routine maintenance services never are able to say much.
VERY WELL SAID. on my infiniti g37s, with 19" rims, the tires have such a thin sidewall (245/40-19) that even at 12psi, the tires still look fully inflated, when in fact they are to take 36psi. my sportbike tires are the same = i checked my tires after a winter and they were at 8psi. the tires didnt even look like they lost an ounce of air.Rogue One wrote:Let's start with the obvious, Did you actually check them before adding air?

VERY WELL SAID once again. i have this same exact problem since last January when i bought the car used. i didnt even bother returning it because tons of people have issues with those stupid sensors. i simply check my tire pressure every two weeks just to make sure they are not deflated via a good quality tire gauge.Rogue One wrote:If they're inflated properly, then you may have a bad sensor. The simplest (and cheapest) solution is just ignore it. People have been driving cars for 100 years now, and suddenly they can't seem to drive without all the added gizmos working (some people have panic attacks if their GPS can't find an address).
The sticker on the door jam, is only for the tires the car came with. the PSI rating on that sticker can over-fill new tires if they are designed for lower psi standards than the OEM tires. not all tires are created equal, and sometimes people mount slightly different size tires after changing from the OEM ones. ALWAYS refer back to the sidewall of the tire if your tires are not OEM ones.darylzero wrote:Also, don't fill the tire to the PSI on the tire itself, that is the MAX psi the tire can take. Fill the tire to the PSI on the sticker on your front door jam, that is the correct pressure your tire should be at.
