Going Rogue?

SUBJECT VEHICLE: 2008-09 Nissan Rogue.

SENSOR IN TIRE? No (a sensor is installed in each wheel).

RESET PROCEDURE? Yes (whenever a new sensor has been installed).

SPECIAL TOOLS NEEDED? Yes (the Nissan CONSULT-II and CONSULT-II CONVERTER tools. Also, a transmitter activation tool/J-45295 can be used.)

The 2008-09 Nissan Rogue’s tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) uses transmitter-sensors installed in each wheel that transmit low pressure information when the vehicle is driven at speeds of 20 mph and higher.

When the TPMS detects pressure levels of less than 26 psi, the warning light in the instrument cluster illuminates. The Body Control Module (BCM) reads the air pressure level signal and controls the warning light and buzzer operations. It also can detect system malfunctions.

In order to remove an old sensor and install a new one, follow these steps:

1. Deflate the tire. Unscrew the transmitter-sensor retaining nut and let the transmitter fall into the tire.

2. Place the tire and wheel assembly on the tire changer and break both beads. Make sure the transmitter-sensor remains at the bottom of the tire during this process.

3. Turn the tire so that valve hole is at the bottom and gently bounce the tire so the transmitter-sensor is near the valve hole.

4. Lift the tire onto the turntable and position the valve hole/transmitter-sensor 270 degrees from the mounting/demounting head (see Figure 1).

5. Lubricate the tire. Remove the top side of the tire.

6. Reach inside the tire and remove the transmitter-sensor.

7. Remove the second side of the tire as normal.

Now you’re ready to install the new transmitter-sensor. Follow these steps:

1. Place the first side of the tire onto the rim.

2. Mount the transmitter-sensor on the rim. Tighten the nut to 68 in.-lbs.

3. Place the wheel on the turntable. Make sure the transmitter-sensor is 270 degrees from the mounting/demounting head.

4. Lubricate the tire and install the second side of the tire. Ensure the tire does not rotate.

5. Inflate the tire. Balance the tire and wheel assembly.

6. Install the tire and wheel assembly.

At this point, you’re ready to register the tire pressure sensor.

Identification time

Sensors must be registered whenever a transmitter-sensor has been replaced and/or when the Rogue’s spare time has been mounted. To register a new sensor, you must use a Nissan CONSULT-II and CONSULT-II CONVERTER. A transmitter activation tool (J-45295) can be used to aid registration.

If you decide to use a transmitter activation tool, follow these steps:

1. With the ignition switch OFF, connect CONSULT-II and CONSULT-II CONVERTER to the Data Link Connector.

2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.

3. Select “START (NISSAN BASED VHCL).”

4. Touch “BCM” on the “SELECT SYSTEM” screen.

5. Select “AIR PRESSURE MONITOR” on the “SELECT WORK ITEM” screen.

6. Select “WORK SUPPORT” on the “SELECT DIAG MODE” screen. Select “ID REGIST.”

7. Push the transmitter activation tool against the front left transmitter tire air valve and press the button for five seconds.

8. Register the IDs in this order: front left, front right, rear right and rear left.

9. When the ID registration on each wheel has been complete, the turn signal light will flash twice.

10. After completing all ID registrations, press “END” to complete the procedure.

If you decide not to use the transmitter activation tool, you must follow these steps:

1. With the ignition switch turned OFF, connect CONSULT-II and CONSULT-II CONVERTER to the Data Link Connector.

2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.

3. Select “START (NISSAN BASED VHCL).”

4. Touch “BCM” on the “SELECT SYSTEM” screen.

5. Select “AIR PRESSURE MONITOR” on the “SELECT WORK ITEM” screen.

6. Select “WORK SUPPORT” on the “SELECT DIAG MODE” screen. Select “ID REGIST.”

7. Adjust the tire pressure to the specified values for ID registration.

8. Drive the vehicle at 25 mph or more for a few minutes.

9. After completing all ID registrations, press “END” to complete the procedure.

10. Inflate all four tires to their specifications.

If a new transmitter-sensor has been installed, it will be in “asleep” mode. You will need to “wake” the transmitter-sensor before you can begin the ID process. Here’s how:

1. With the transmitter activation tool pushed against the front left transmitter, press the button for five seconds.

2. With the ignition switch ON, the respective transmitter-sensor will wake up.

3. Register the ID of the wheel that flashed the low pressure warning light.

4. When wake-up is complete, the turn signal light will flash twice.
