Low Tire Sensor on

I have a 2010 GT and the tire sensor is on...My tires are fine, checked all pressure and I'm good. Does anyone know how to reset the darn thing or do I have to go to the dealer?

Thanks,

Ben

they use some sort of device to reset them, the dealer may have to do it

Re: Low Tire Sensor on

Our Xterra's comes on anytime it goes below the factory psi, I put 1more psi than what they call for and drive about 2 miles and it goes off.

You may have a bad sensor.

Some cars have a sensor in the spare. I had the same problem on my ridgeline, drove me nuts on why the light was on. I gave up and took it to the dealer and they laughed at me. My spare was low. They said it happens all the time.

Gster;

I checked the spare, and it too was fine! I guess I'm going have to suck it up and take it to the dealer! I only have 15k on the car, but about 6 months left on the warranty! LOL

Thanks,

Ben

I had the same problem on my 2010 gt! Haha I ended up having to take it to the dealer and they had to replace one of the sensors.
