Tire Rotation with TPMS

I've been trying to research this before I get it done, but anyone know if a standard Tire Rotation will affect the TPMS, which is standard on all 2005+ Frontiers??

I know the sensors are imbedded in each tire/wheel set.. would switching them from front to rear/vice versa impact how the sensors are read? I'm thinking not, but wasn't sure. This way I can do it myself instead of taking it to the dealership which may give me some B.S. about sensor resetting or something like that.

I seriously don't think it will affect the TPMS after a tire rotation is done. All 4 sensors should be the same, it won't affect anything.

Look in the owners manual. There will be a diagram and explaination of the recommended tire rotation scheme. If there is anything special that needs to be done they must indicate it in the manual.

I used to work in a tire garage last summer and did a couple of tire rotations on new frontiers with the TPMS and they never came back complaining about a problem so it shouldn't matter how or where the tires are rotated to. But I did break a couple of sensors putting new tires on and that's an expensive mistake.

No issues and no need to have the dealer do it. '05 here, no problems. Z

I just rotated my tires not too long ago on my '06 and there were no issues with the TPMS.

Doesn't take too long to do it yourself. Took me all of 20 minutes.

When you do your tire rotation, it will not affect TPMS.

The sensors are not position specific, so the wheels can go anywhere, but follow the rotation sequence.

I have just picked up my 07 3.5SE and my TPMS light flashed and stayed on a few miles after driving off the dealer lot. Have yet had time to go back.

The likely reason being: One tire/wheel was swapped with that on another new 3,5SE due to take care of a scratched up wheel.

Logically, I believe the computer on board has learnt of the 4 RF tags/signals from the 4 original tires and sudenly, one is gone and is replaced with a RF it does not know. Now, to make the comoputer re-learn or reset, we have to go back to the dealer due to legal reason?

Anyone know the sequence to trigger reset? Can we disconnect battery power for 30 min. to make it re-learn/re-set

I also read soemwhere,

The Manual seems to indicate tire rotation needs relearning/resetting also.

Incorrect, rotations will not be affected. If you are missing an original wheel/sensor it will not trigger. The reset (once programmed) is to obtain proper pressure and drive, simple as that. Everything accept for the programming is in the manual. More than likely you have a low tire and yes you will indeed need to go to the dealer most likely, but not for legality. Z

Check the tire pressures before you do anything else.

Z_Rated & nissanmadness

Thanks to both.

1) Checked cold pressure already. Dealer had 40 psi. Thought over-inflation may be a trigger and therefor lower all 4 tires to 33 psi (spec) and mearued w/ a quality tire gauge. The light still on - flash for a minute then solid.

2) Z_Rated: See my messge. The cupid is possibly the wheel swapped from another new 3.5SE on the dealer lot to resolved a scratched up wheel on the car I want. Is this what you condiered as 'not original wheel/sensor' or you are talking about aftermarket stuff. At any rate, it is unlikley that the sensor on wheel swapped over is faulty or else that car will not have set in the lot all this time without being repaired.

3) Your second sentence only means to say that 'after resetting', that is, once 'programmed', the module continuously obtain RF signal indicating proper pressure and we just drive; right? I am not missing the point, right?

4) OK, back to my question: Will a good and new sensor (from the swapped over tire) being introduced and an existing sensor removed be read by the module as missing a signal and the light will come on until the module is reset/relearn to add this new member?
