    TPMS disable

    Because my Series 4 TPMS sensors are fitted only to 4 wheels, each time I rotate the 5 wheels, either as part of the normal rotation procedure or due to a puncture, the warning light illuminates and stays on because one of the 4 wheels on the vehicle does not have a sensor. I don't like driving with any warning light illuminated, and I don't want to have to go to a Nissan dealer each time to have the system re-calibrated. I guess one option is to fit a sensor to the 5th wheel. Another is to disable the system, but the handbook does not indicate whether the system can be disabled. Before I put the question to Nissan, do any owners on this forum know whether the TPMS can actually be disabled? If yes, what's the procedure?
    Thanks

    Fitting a sensor to the spare won't help.
    The TPMS system only allows for the registration of 4 sensors at any time so as soon as you fit the spare you will still have the problem and need it 'registered' by Nissan or a a tyre mob with the appropriate scantool.

    AFAIK there is no way around the issue.

    Thanks.....that's what I suspected. I've already had a brawl with Nissan about the recent 30000 km service, and I'm not inclined at all to pay for them to "re-register" the TPMS every time I rotate the tyres. I'm yet to check whether the TPMS is through a dedicated single purpose fuse and whether that may be a way of de-activating the system.

    The fuse in question is fuse #3 (10 Amp) (Ign power supply #2) and it also supplies brake switches and other equipment.
    The TPMS uses Canbus to 'talk' to the Instrument Cluster so I think it won't solve the problem

    You can try pulling it but I think you may lose brake lights and/or cruise and also still illuminate the warning lamp/s

    Thanks again. Good advice. Looks as though I've hit a brick wall on this one. One of a couple of irritating issues in what I'm otherwise finding to be a pretty good vehicle.

    And the crappy GU seat belts that they never fixed in 18 years of vehicle production!

    Still - I love my GU. I may be the crazy one.

    I have spoken to my Nissan Dealer re this issue. Firstly they said they dont include the spare during rotation because of the sensors. This is what I am going to do. Tyre rotation is part of the nissan warranty service. So re registering the tyres is part of the service. I am fitting a sensor to my spare at my cost. Then the dealer will re register the tyres when rotated at service. I will drop the spare and put it in the boot before service so the poor dears don't over exert themselves.
