2013 NISSAN Frontier Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) monitors tire pressure. A Check Tire Pressure warning message will appear in the odometer and the low tire pressure warning light will illuminate when one or more tires are low on pressure and air is needed. Adjust the tire pressure to the recommended COLD tire pressure shown on the Tire and Loading Information label. After tire pressures are adjusted, press this reset button and drive the vehicle at speeds above 16 MPH. 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 ignition on, the TPMS is not functioning properly. Have the system checked by a NISSAN dealer.

Tire pressure rises and falls depending on the heat caused by the vehicles 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.

Please be aware that 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.
