    So let me get this straight....the sensor is located to the rim?...so you can rotate four around the gen4...no probs but the spare must be maintained as a spare?

    Well yeah sort of , the sensors are attached to the valve inside the tyre/wheel I believe , can't say I have seen one .
    You can buy and install a extra sensor and fit it to the spare but when you fit the spare you have to take it to Nissan and get them to code it so it will show on the dash , the dash can only show 4 sensors , you would have to do that every time if doing a 5 tyre rotation , unless you bought ya own scan thingy .

    But my Nissan dealer said I couldn't do that because the extra sensor would interfere with the others and none would work but they are full of it because others have done it .

    Yep, total bullshit.
    The tyre has to be rotating to "wake up" the sensor, and the sensor unique ID has to be "registered" on the TPMS which has a max of 4 at anytime... none of which can happen with a 5th sensor on a spare, it is asleep and not registered on the TPMS

    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    Sooooo...
    .if im rotating my 4 tyres..keeping the spare as a spare im ok....(sounds screwed up i know)

    If i wanna rotate the spare without the internal valve tpms i gotta ask my local shop to change the valves ???....so wont need to take it to nissan as the head unit monitoring the tpms will still see that vale spinning like all four should ...(swap vales each rotation)

    Yes that would work but don't ya think that would be a pita , probably better off just buying a extra sender and getting the Nissan dealer to register it each time , depending on the dealer I guess ,
    My dealer I think it would be to much bloody trouble even though it's only a 5min job .
