My low pressure warning light came on this morning. I have aired all tires to 35psi and the damn thing is still on. Do I need to disconnect the battery to reset?

thanks

In general, no. When it happened to me, it stayed on until the next time I got over 20mph (after the next start).

What year is your Titan? The 04 and 05 if you have low pressure the light will come on with a warning sound. IF it's the light only that mean something is wrong with the TPMS system. For the 06 and newer no warning sound, light only low pressure, light flash for one minute at start up and stay on mean TPMS system is not working right.

I had a problem with my tire pressure sensors. I got rims put on my truck and they kept leaking and going off so i got the regular stims put in. went to the dealer and its like 90$ for 1.So I asked them if they could disconnect my light being I have the regular stims and they aid it would viod my warranty.

My warning light came on yesterday morning as well. Checked all tires and they are at 30 psi. A little low but not low enough to set that off. One time I ran over a nail and it didn't come on until the tire was almost completely flat. Some way to reset it? I've been well over 20 MPH several times, started and stopped the truck several times.

I've heard that if you take the ground off your battery for like 15-20 min it should reset the lights but im not sure if itll work or not. Wont hurt to try.I put rims on mine and the stims were leaking and so I got the regular stems put in and went to the dealership and said itll void my warranty if they disconnect the light.Also with Cipher I can turned the light off and it comes back on like 5 seconds later. I just drive with mine on

Ugh...senor light came on when I started up the truck today. Checked and all tires at 32 lbs. Drove 125 miles and checked again...still 32 lbs and the damn light is still on. I may try the "put 40 lbs" thingy in and see what happens.

Like the rest of you, I'm in the same boat. The TPMS Light came on in the truck (2006 Model) while I was traveling on the highway. I pulled over to the side of the road to check all the tires and they were all fine. I went home and aired all of them up to 40 psi and drove to work this morning (about 20 miles) and it's still on :dunno:

The day that the light came on I went to a dealer and he said it was going to cost $90 (1 hours worth of work) to turn the light off? :huh: Maybe that's just me, but I think he's trying to rape me at that price. Don't they just plug in their handheld computer and push a "reset" button on it? I was expecting maybe a $10-20 charge, but $90 is freakin' ridiculous.

Anywho, does anyone know a way that I might be able to turn this thing off by myself? I have yet to read that disconnecting the battery for 10-15 minutes does the trick. I really don't feel like paying that much money to have a greasemonkey push a button on his computer to reset the darn thing.

Does anyone know how to reset it???

I don't want to go to the dealer if it's a matter of a couple of key turns and brake pedal taps. There has to be some kind of way to do this at home.

I put in 38 psi...drove a few miles, shut the engine off, restarted and the light went off after the bulb test. Let out air to 35 psi and the light remained off after 125 miles of driving.

If it is getting a signal, I don't think there is any way to reset it. I had 40psi in my stock tires and didn't have any trouble, but if I kept them at 32 I would always get a light. If they are aired up, and you drive a while above 20 and it is still on there must be a problem with the system.

ive got an 06 and i have the low pressure light as well the annoying beeping alarm. lght came on the other day driving down the interstate, flashed a couple times then went off. came on a couple days later, with the alarm upon startup, checked the pressures (3 at 35 - 1 was at 32) aired them up to 40 - the light went off instantly and the next afternoon the beeping finally stopped coming on when id start the truck.

For the second time in the three weeks I've had my Titan, the TPMS light came on the other morning when it was 7 deg out. Tire pressures were all at 33-34 PSI. I couple of days later I pumped the tires up to 35 PSI all around and within 20 miles the light went out. It's going to be a major PITA if the system is that sensitive.

Just wanna say thanks for all your input...

Turns out that due to the cold weather, my PSI went down to about 32 per tire. I guess that was enough to set off the sensor (which is set for 28 PSI).

I aired up to 35 psi (as posted on the door) and the light went off after about 1/4 mile of driving...

Thanks again people

Just an update on a old thread....about the TPM sensors, I just had wheels traded out on my son's 05 CC Titan. Had Discount Tires remove the TMP sensors out of the OEM rims and installed in his new ones. They had just got their new instrument for resetting the TPM sensors. They just plug it in and pull the trigger on their little hand held instrument 5 times and it resets the system. I saw em do it to a Frontier after installation of new tires.

Now on my son's 05, the instrument would not plug in which baffled the guys their, but the system went off immediately after leaving Discount and reset automatically.

I guess what I am saying is don't go pay the STEALER $90, just hit up discount tire and see if they will plug in and reset the system for a small fee.

My TPMS has nothing to do with tires. My light comes on in the late fall and finally turns off in late spring. Nissan apparently thought of a cute way to keep me informed of when summer and winter are approaching!!!!!:thumbsup:
