OK let me give you some backround, came home the other day with a screw in one of my tires I didn't have time to do a full swap so I just replaced that wheel/ tire with one of my winter ones. Well as you can imagine the tpms light went crazy kept blinking. The next day I installed the other 3 winter wheels (which are factory 16" wheels with factory Nissan TPMS sensors)
I then proceeded to do the reset, which seemed to work (light starting blinking, went off and came back on during the drive) aired up all the tires to 35psi and now the light stays on, does not blink on start up. Is this a battry issue? or sensor?

One of mines doing the same thing.. i made sure the air pressure is set right, and its still on. Every morning when you first start the truck it gives you a LOUD "Beep" for about five seconds. I imagine, its one of the sensors, but it only does it when its really cold out, and i even checked my air when it was this could and it was all good. Those little sensors arent cheap either....
Also, this all started happening after i got my tires replaced about three months ago. Maybe the tire shops messed them up?
Its things like this TPMS problem that turn me off to all the HI TECH stuff they are adding to vehicles today. Just one more thing to drive one nuts. I am thinking the dealer will have to reset the programming with one of their computer devices. That's a wild guess.
I didn't install TPMS on my winter tires for just this sort of thing , my light stays on all the time but I check the tire pressure myself at every other gas fill up. I won't do the elec. tape cover up of the dash light so it will remind me to check the pressure. When the summer tires (oems) go back on next spring then the light will go off again. At least there is no constant chime or bell ringing while the light is on.
