DIY: TPMS sensor reset

I ate a curb last night and cracked my LF rim I went to NY and grabbed a set of rear 18's and moved my rear 17's up front. I had to reset the TPMS system afterwards to get the system to recognize the new sensors.


Procedure:
Set the tire pressures to the following values

RF34 RR26
LF31 LR28

Locate the TPMS Service connector by doing the following:
Remove the plastic panel directly below the steering wheel (you must remove two other panels to get to it), and taped to the OBD harness is the TPMS Service connector

Feed the service connector through the OBD2 data connector opening and then replace the plastic panel.

Back-probe the service connector with a paperclip or something similar, I used one of the probes from my meter.

Start the engine.

Ground the service connector to the chassis 5 times, about once per second.

Your TPMS light will begin flashing

Take a 5-5.5 mile drive and your TPMS light will turn off.

Immediately refill the tires to the recommended pressure... in my case 35psi. If you do not, the sensor will alert you with an annoying high pitched beep. Enjoy your dash with no TPMS light!!!

where did you ground the service connector? Is it long enough to reach part of the chasis?

Its the procedure outlined in the FSM.

I've done this method a few times with success.


They actually make a tool for grounding the test plug. Not really necessary, but does make it slightly easier. You can probably make your own wire harness for $1 to do the same thing

Google this, but why can't any TPMS sensors work for any car?

Simply amazon has a set of generic TPMS sensors for 50$, but the best value infiniti/nissan equivalent is 100$.
