Nissan warns that the use of improper tire inflator tools can break the stem of a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) sensor.
To avoid potential damage, DO NOT USE:
- A long heavy hose with a lock-on air chuck
- Deep well or dual head air chuck
- Air chucks with handles or extensions
The proper inflator tools include:
- Shallow well air chucks
- Air chucks with flexible hose (no extensions)
AFTERMARKET TIRE SEALERS
According to Nissan, aftermarket tire sealants and/or aerosol repair kits should not be used with TPMS. Some aftermarket tire sealers and/or aerosol repair kits contain chemicals and propellants that can cause damage to TPMS sensors.
