My tire sensor light comes on constantly and usually happens right after I go to get service of some nature. It was on within days after my purchase of the vehicle and has continued since. I am diligent about checking air pressure it is always wrong. Recently, my tire needed to be replaced due to a huge hole/gash. I replaced 2 and put them on the front. I noticed my drivers side tire always looked flat and when I went to check it, the metal cover was corroded and required pliers to get it off. Well sure enough, the entire top broke off leaving the tire stem exposed. Took it to the place who put on the new tires and was told it was the sensor. Now I am constantly filling the tires regardless of temp and now I had to pay to replace this sensor that is clearly not working. My fear is that the gash in my tire happened as a result of the sensor. Was it on and I ignored it because it is always wrong? or worse yet, did the damage come from inside? I am not sure but I can tell you I will never replace one again. It is sad that something that is designed to be a safety feature ends up being ignored because it is always wrong. My daughter just started driving and I even told her to ignore it. That is not a good way to start off dealing with cars. Thankfully nothing serious happened when I was driving.

2009 Nissan Versa. The tpms "tire pressure monitoring system" the valve stems on all four tires was either cracked and / or defective, two were leaking air so badly I had to fill them back up with air every day> I thought I had driven over some nails that made them leak air. When I went to get them checked, I was shocked to find out it was the valve stems that was casusing the problem. I had to replace them with rubber valve stems. Dealship was closed and going to call them about it. But don't think they are covered. Just glad I didn't have a blow out or sudden lose of air that could have caused me to wreck. This doesn;t seem to be an isolated problem and the dealer should have a recall on faulty equipment.

Tire pressure light comes on intermittently when driving on the highway at 60 mph or above. Tire pressure has been checked and is alwasy correct at 32 psi. Happens constantly. Took car to dealer, they can find no error codes in computer. They reset it manually, took a rode trip 2 days later and the light came on again. It will stay on until I get off the highway, or will flash on and off and then go back off again.

Low tire light keeps coming on. I have had it turned of by Nissan several times. I check the air pressure regularly so I know the tire pressure is not low.

The contact owns a 2008 Nissan Versa. The contact stated the tire pressure monitoring system was sending an improper message to the computer, indicating that the rear driver side tire was low. The tire was not low in air so the contact took the vehicle to the dealer where the dealer advised that the tire pressure monitoring system had malfunctioned and needed to be replaced. The contact did not have the tire pressure monitoring system replaced. The failure mileage was 57,000. The VIN was not available.

This is my first new car I have ever own and have put more money into it then any of my old cars. About a month after I bought it in April of 2010 I immediately had problems with the tires and hubcaps. One of my hubcaps fell off and I had to replace it. It fell off due to a clip that was initially missing on it when I first bought it. Following that came my tire problems. For the past 7 months I have dealt with tire pressure problems. As a matter of fact I have been getting my tires refilled about two times a week. Finally I decided to have them resealed(cost 27$ a tire) and as they were doing that they found that my tire pressure sensor inside the tire was corroded. Therefore I had to spend 97$ and have them replace this because it was beyond saving. Two days later I ended up back at the tire place for them to tell me that I need to replace more sensors. Im very unhappy about my new car, if I would have known I was going to have so many issues with the tires I would have bought a different brand. I didn't buy a new car to have problems with it, this was the problems I was trying to get away from!!.

I have had issues with the low-tire sensor since shortly after purchasing my 2009 Nissan Versa. I kept taking it to the local dealer and they would get it to go off but told me that it was not covered under warranty after 12,000 miles. So I would take my car to a local tire company and they worked on it a few times. When I needed new tires, they replaced all my tires with new ones, and even serviced the pressor sensors. Within 1/2 day of driving off with new tires, the sensor came back on. It has been on since. This system could save lives if we didn't have to ignore them so much!!! don't get me wrong, I love my Versa. I would rather it had a reliable tire pressure sensing system.

The contact owns a 2008 Nissan Versa. While driving approximately 50 mph the tire pressure monitor sensor light came on. He added air to the tires and drove over 16 mph but the sensor did not reset as indicated in the users manual. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they could not locate the cause of the failure but they manually reset the tire pressure monitor sensor. The failure recurred and the vehicle was taken to the dealer who manually reset the tire pressure sensor. The failure occurred a third time and the vehicle taken to the dealer again to manually reset the tire pressure monitor sensor. The failure mileage was 15,000 and the current mileage was 23,000. Updated 02/09/lj.

We have had nothing but trouble with tire sensor on the Nissan Versa. One has been removed because it is cracked and another one is failing. What happens is the tires loose an extreme amount of air because of this failure and could cause a catastrophe. We were told by Nissan that this is not covered under warranty but we would be glad to order 2 new sensors for approximately $300. 00. That price is more than the tires are worth and we replaced the stems with standard ones and our light for tire sensor still is on and I am constantly checking the other 2 tires to see if a dangerous situation is developing.

I have had three tire air pressure sensor valves fail on three different tires since I bought my 2009 Nissan Versa in February 2009. Two kept losing air and triggering the light in my dashboard more frequently until it was every 2 or so days and I had it replaced with a plain valve till I could get to Nissan for a replacement. The other was suddenly almost flat and I had the valve replaced. The first time this happened, the dealership service said there was no problem, maybe it was the weather, even though only one tire was losing pressure every 2 days. I have changed dealerships and they have replaced 2, and I will be bringing in the third. All were originally diagnosed and had plain valves replaced at my local tire store. When will the fourth go, and will it kill me or someone else? are the replacements any better than the originals? I'm afraid to drive my new car.

The tire pressure monitoring system began to flash and then went to a steady signal. When I pulled over to check the tire pressure it was fine. This continued to happen almost daily and is still happening. On one occasion I ignored it and later that day I had a blow out due to low tire pressure. I cannot get the dealer to fix this. I changed wheels and added new tires and the condition continues. On some days while driving it will start to malfunction and then turn off. On other days it is fine. I have seen online that several other people have had the same problem.

I bought my car brand new in may 2009. In the midst of a harsh winter, we noticed that our tire was going flat and the tpms light was on. We bought a new tire and the same thing happened. It was discovered that the tpms gauge was cracked and leaking air. After research I found that Nissan recalled several vehicles for this exact problem. Because my Nissan Versa was not part of the recall, they refused to cover it. The gauge needs to be replaced and it cannot be driven safely without it.

The tpms system in my 2007 Versa has stopped working properly. It has failed and came on with the tire pressure fine. I have taken it to a dealer and they told me the first time that I had one tire that was 1lb low and that it would shut off within the next 5 miles or so/. It did to come back on in 10 miles. I have talked to them several times and they tell me that they will put it on their machine to test it for $45.

The tpms light comes on though tires are properly inflated. Manufacturer's instructions for reset do not work. I've had it to the dealer twice for this problem. They reset it, after implying that after 40+ years of driving, I don't know how to inflate a tire. After awhile it comes on again.

Continuing problems with the tire pressure monitoring system light staying on despite correcting the tire pressure. This seems to be a problem with many Nissan Versa 2007 owners and should be addressed by the manufacturer in a recall. Already had one trip to the dealer for correction at 3500 miles. Incident date should read November 21, 207--latest incident of tpms light staying on despite corrected action taken.

I, along with many other Versa owners have experienced the failure of the tire pressure monitoring system. Apparently,there is no permanent fix yet available,thus rendering the tpms useless.

The tire pressure monitoring sysytem on my 2007 Nissan Versa continually shows a fault when the tire pressure is actually correct on all 4 tires.

The tire pressure monitor system, or tpms, on the 2007 Nissan Versa that I, and many, many others own, keeps failing. The tpms light on the dash will blink and then stay steady on, which Nissan, in the manual, says is a fault has occurred in the tpms monitor system and you have to take to the dealer for repair. Nissan dealers have no fix and it is a cause of great concern. I have already had this problem 'fixed' once at 1100 miles and then problem recurred at around 2000 miles. . Read more...

Tire pressure monitoring system (tpms) installed on the vehicle, per new NHTSA regulations, has failed multiple times with a fault condition displayed on the dash light. Nissan dealer does not have a permanent fix, they just "reregister" the sensors which is only a temporary fix. Initial failure on this vehicle occurred at 4216 miles and was "re-registered", and failed again at approximately 5400 miles. Failure prevents tpms system from functioning correctly - it reports an error when all tires are ok, and the continuous error effectively disables the system for its intended purpose.

Purchased 2007 Nissan Versa, includes the tire pressure monitoring systems (tpms) as required by the nhtsb. In the first 2,000 miles of ownership, the system has falsely triggered twice. In both cases, tire pressures were per specification. Nissan dealer found no mechanical issues, either with the tires themselves or with the tpms system.
