Nissan releases TPMS cautions

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)


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.
