Has anybody installed the TPMS themselves? Also, is there a way to change the pressure at which the TPMS light is activated? I heard it's lit at 30 PSI?
Nope look at the valve stems and the sensor is on the other side inside the wheel the sensor is held in place with the nut at the valve stem.The sensors in the tires, are they attached by some type of metal band or brace and tightened against the inside wheel?
The wheels won't affect TPMS. Are the sensors you put back in the originals from the car? The Body Control Module (BCM) is programmed to look for the exact sensors that came in the car originally. If those are changed for a different sensor, even if it's an OEM sensor, the BCM won't read it.My husband had to take them to a tire shop because they had to mount them back on and all that. But the light is still on.
From what I've read, it will just stay on because they're aftermarket wheels?
These are the original sensors. We drove about 500 miles after putting them on the aftermarket wheels. The light is still on.The wheels won't affect TPMS.

check tire pressure and make sure it is between 33-35 PSI if not air up tires and spray the valve stem area with soapy water and look for bubbles, also check bead seat ara of rims out side edge and inside edge. Some people to not properly tighten down the sensors or break them from to much tightening to where they look okay but area slowely leaking air. had a set of those today.These are the original sensors.

Yeah, most shops rip people off.Wow $44! To tell me sheesh for that price I can just get a replacement kit off of ebay and just do them all! I check my tires every couple of fill ups so this is not useful really. wish there was a way to turn that stupid exclamation point off!
I just checked the how too section and did not see the thread. Do you have a link to the method that you used, as it would be nice if we could program them without a cost. Thanks VVI recently put aftermarket wheels on my wifes V. When I took the old wheels in to remove the sensor the tech that dismounted the wheels broke one of my sensors. The shop ordered a new one and installed it free of charge, but they couldn't get the light to reset. They told me to take it to a Nissan Dealership (90 miles away) and get it reprogrammed then they'd pay me back for it. I decided to try and reprogram them myself since I'd had some luck resetting my airbag light and reading/clearing DTCs without a tool. After a quick google search I found an article on myG37.com detailing how to reset the TPMS system on a 2007 G37. I decided to give it a try since a few other posters in the thread had luck with other Nissan models. It worked like a charm! It was an extremely simple procedure. It only took my 15 min to rest my tpms light and learn the new sensor ID. I modified the instructions to suit the Versa and posted them in the How to section a couple of weeks ago but unfortunately the Mods haven't approved it yet, nor told me why it hasn't been approved. I'll try to repost it here if the OP doesn't mind the thread jack.
