Tire Pressure monitor annoyance!

Cripes, what is with this thing???

The system goes off whenever the temp changes.

Had it reset a while back at the dealer, but then it went off again. Gotta find the hand held device so I can reset it myself and not go to dealer!!!!

This is a problem on all vehicles.u tube is full of ways to reset these and tools for resetting.
But I agree what a pain. Car should come with an easy reset button!
Do you think the temp is the problem? My van sat over the long TKG weekend and light was on in the morning. All pressures were good. The biggest issue it the CHECK PRESSURE message that's scrolls thru the small Imformation panel.
Is there an easy way to reset this? It must be the same as on other Nissans.
The other issue is it does not operate until you can see the tire is soft!
Mine came back from dealer after oil change and tire rotation with only 32 psi in the front. Nothing on the tire monitor. The 44 front 48 rear is unusual but you think they would have at least had a look at the tag!
So not a city express/ Nissan nv200 exclusive problem.

So I was passing my dealer today ( Patroit Chevy in limerick pa) and I stopped in as I had also noticed I could not even see the mileage to figure out when the next service was due as the Check tire pressure keeps scrolling across the little orange imfo screen.
So the service counter gut said it's usually a temperature issue/ or low pressure. The temp lowered the pressure.
So I had check the pressures and put them up to the 44/48 required but only at a convince store and he said after he took the van to the back to check pressures and the rears were down to 37psi.
Once he put them up to 50 ( since tires were hot) he said the sensors reset and warning was gone. NC.
Thanks Patroit Chevy.
I'll have to do a better job and use my own pump which was in my other van!
I'll have to see if the sensors kick in above almost flat too.
Think I'll check tire before I go anywhere to see where the pressures are at over night.

Just make sure when using a gauge to measure tire pressure that you use an analog gauge since those digital ones have been shown to lose calibration over time more than the analog ones. Analog gauge is old school but good. I know some tech's that swear by it.

That might be true but digital gauges have been out long enough that even some of the cheaper ones have a good chance of being accurate enough. Plus if it's off by one or two PSI... it's not a big deal. Its usually when you're off close to the double digits and beyond that you have to get concerned.

Which digital gauges would you suggest we use? I'm more of an analog gauge user but it never hurts to try something new.

Just about anything from a reputable brand that has a decent warranty because even if it's from a good brand, it could still mess up. Just see what you can find locally. At least then if you need to exchange it, that can be also be done locally.
