low pressure indicator light

i was told that battery may have died in valve stem which is why lite is on . can i replace with normal valve stems. and will the indicator lite go out. dont feel like spending money on battery operated stems. need to get inspected and not sure if they will inspect it with lite on. this is for a 2006 titan

If your wheel sensors are more than about 8yrs old, they may be dead and replacement is the only fix. Most tire shops can replace them for you. Check around to find the best deals.

Tape or a picture over the light works

Most major tire shops always rebuild your TPMS when they mount new tires. Last time I did tires, it cost me 15 bucks per tire for the rebuild. Take it to Pepboys or somewhere similar and have them do a remount and balance and tell them to rebuild the TPMS.

Only ****ty part about this, is if your truck is like mine, it will tell you low tire pressure but will not specify which tire and if your tires are all good, then you will need all them looked at.

Low temps lower the pressure. Air it up if it's low and you're good to go.

As stated above, TPMS sensors have a defined lifespan. 7 to 10 years. The ones that came with my Titan are just now starting to die. Almost 10 years. I'll count that as a win.

rebuild doesn't replace the battery. the rebuild kit is used to hold off the galvanic reaction that destroys the metal stem. Rock Auto sells the tpms radios for under $40 each. Replace all at one time and they have to be 'recognized' by the system. There are several wand type reset tools out there. just about every tire shop has one.

The spare does not usually have a sensor. The spare may have been rotated into the mix, so it might be a good idea to compare the valve stems.

A Titan would only have a sensor in the spare if a prior owner added it or if the actual spare was in use on an axle and the regular tire/wheel was moved to the spare position.

lol, I wasn`t serious in my reply bc the poster was dragging up old threads lately and misinformed.
I do not think the titan TPMS can support 5 sensors like Toyota and others. otherwise maybe Nissan would have included one in the spare, being it is a full size.

That would actually be a good idea since it makes it that much easier to ensure the spare is maintained rather than having to remember to check it, top it up, etc. Seen a lot of people that forget and end up still needing roadside assistance to fill up air, or they have just enough air to get to a gas station to fill up.
