Nissan Altima owners have reported 10 problems associated with tire pressure monitoring system (under the tire category).
#1 - Tire Pressure Monitoring System problem of the 2010 Nissan Altima
The vehicle involved is a 2010 Nissan Altima. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is 1N4AL2APXA_. I put air into the front driver side tire of my 2010 nisaan Altima and the tire censor broke while doing so. I took the car to dave's Nissan of jackson to be fixed, when they later informed me the censor was not covered under warranty. The design of the tire stem should be looked at so the censor breaking does not happen to people in the future that attempt to put air into their tires. Nissan is unwilling to coporate with me on this issue so I had to take matters into my own hands and contact dot for assistance with this matter. It was Dec. 20, 2010 when this tire pressure monitoring system issue occurred.

#3 - Tire Pressure Monitoring System problem of the 2009 Nissan Altima
The car involved was a 2009 Nissan Altima. The VIN of this Altima is 1N4AL21E19_. Loosing air pressure on tires. Made light on dash to come on. Found out, using soap with water that it was leaking around the valve stems of two tires due to factory improper installation and torque procedures of the vehicle tire pressure monitors or bad o-ring.

#4 - Tire Pressure Monitoring System problem of the 2009 Nissan Altima
The tire pressure sensors (tire valves) have failed 4 times in 33,000 miles on my 2009 Nissan Altima. The material used to construct the vale corrodes and then fractures easily during snow tire removal process. This causes the valve to leak resulting in flat tires. So far replaced under warrenty but will cost upwards of $110 each after warranty expires not to mention aaa calls & inconvenience. This problem occurred on Apr. 15, 2011.
#5 - Tire Pressure Monitoring System problem of the 2008 Nissan Altima
I bought my 2008 Nissan Altima from champion Nissan,katy,texas. I paid $2000 for four boss wheels and tires. At 15,000 miles, I had two tires fall apart and have belts to separate making the car un-drivable. Now I have a third tire which seems like it is trying to do the same;however, I have had to stop driving the car for safety reasons. I contacted champion Nissan(281-644-1100 ) and spoke with two managers,rafael and phil;, and have been put off for ten days now because they are trying to pass the buck to the vendor which sold them the boss wheels w/ tires. They have found out that the business is now "out of business" and they seem to be in meetings all the time. Can someone help me convince them that since the car was purchased with the no good tires from them, they ought to put decent tires on my car so I can drive it? the warranty book they gave me describes goodyear, bf goodrich and dunlop tires. . . . Nothing is mentioned about nankang tires. Help!. This tire pressure monitoring system issue occurred Tue., Jul. 28, 2009.

#6 - Tire Pressure Monitoring System problem of the 2008 Nissan Altima
The VIN of this vehicle is 1N4AL21EX8_. 2008 Nissan Altima sedan with 13000 miles. The tire pressure monitor system does not work as it is supposed to. The warning light is on if the tires are at the specified pressure of 32 psi as specified by the placard affixed to the driver side door. I went to the dealer and the fix was to increase the tire pressure to between 35 and 40 psi. That is unacceptable as the handling changes drastically, the ride deteriorates and I'm sure the life of the tires is shortened. After discussing the repair with the service department, they informed me that since the pressure monitoring is a government mandated item, increasing the pressure is all they are required to do by Nissan, and that there is nothing else they can do. That is an unacceptable fix. I was reading in a Nissan help group website that the problem is an often happening even on cars right out of the showroom. This issue happened on 09/10/08.
#7 - Tire Pressure Monitoring System problem of the 2007 Nissan Altima
The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 1N4AL21E97_. Consumer owns a 2007 Nissan Altima. The tire pressure warning light constantly illuminated on the instrument panel, which indicated that the tire pressure was low. The dealer repaired the tire sensor, performed an oil change, and rotated the tires; however, the tire pressure light continued to illuminate. While transporting a passenger, the passenger side seat belt became stuck and could not release the latch from the housing component. When attempting to remove the seat belt, it would become tighter around the passenger. The failure mileage was less than 3,000 and current mileage was 31,000. It was Saturday, May. 10, 1997 when this tire pressure monitoring system issue happened.

#8 - Tire Pressure Monitoring System problem of the 2007 Nissan Altima
The vehicle was a 2007 Nissan Altima. No particular events; low tire pressure light came on when there was no problem. Not sure of occurrence interval but has happened three times. The consequences are that the light stays on continuously and occasionally starts to blink resulting in driver concern over nothing. Have taken vehicle to dealership and they say "no problem with sensors but recommend setting air pressure to 38 psi to get light to stay off" which is 6psi above air pressure decal on door frame that recommends 32 psi. They say this pressure (38 psi) will not impact tire wear which I disagree with completely as well as if you have a 10% pressure build up from normal driving it would exceed the tire manufacturer maximum tire pressure of 41psi. The failure date was Friday, February 13, 2009.
