2013 Nissan Leaf TPMS Tire Pressure Monitoring System Information and Relearn Instructions
Brought to you by NissanUSA
"The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) monitors tire pressure. A CHECK TIRE PRESSURE warning message will appear in the dot matrix liquid crystal display and the low tire pressure warning light will illuminate when one or more tires are low on pressure and air is needed. Adjust the low tire pressure to the recommended COLD tire pressure shown on the Tire and Loading Information label.
The TPMS also includes an Easy Fill Tire Alert, which provides audible and visual cues during inflation that indicate when the tire has reached the recommended COLD tire pressure. After stopping the vehicle, apply the parking brake and place the vehicle in the PARK position. Then place the power switch in the ON position. Do not place the switch in the READY to drive mode. After exiting the vehicle, add air to the underinflated tire and within a few seconds the hazard warning lights will flash. When the designated tire pressure is reached, the horn will beep and the hazard warning flashers will stop. Repeat this procedure for any additional underinflated tires.
After tire pressures are adjusted, drive the vehicle at speeds above 16 miles per hour. The warning and indicator light will disappear. If the low tire pressure warning light flashes for approximately one minute and then remains on after you turn the vehicle ON, the TPMS is not functioning properly. Have the system checked by a NISSAN certified LEAF dealer.
Tire pressure rises and falls depending on the heat caused by the vehicle's operation and the outside temperature. Low outside temperature can lower the temperature of the air inside the tire, which can cause a lower tire inflation pressure. This may cause the low tire pressure warning light to illuminate. If the warning light illuminates in low ambient temperature, check the tire pressure in your tires.
The Tire and Loading Information label provides important information at a glance. It lists proper tire size and pressure. It also lists the maximum number of occupants for your vehicle, and its maximum load capacity. Please check your Owner's Manual for the location of the Tire and Loading Information label on your vehicle.
A final note: the Tire Pressure Monitoring System does NOT detect a sudden drop in tire pressure as with a tire blowout. And it is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance."
