NISSAN VERSA MAINTENANCE RESET
Tutorial on how to reset the Wrench Indicator, Oil Reset, and TPMS Reset on Nissan Versa. This tutorial will also work in Nissan Tiida, Nissan Latio, Nissan Note, Nissan Almera from year 2006-2007-2008-2009-2010-2011-2012-2013-2014-2015-2016-2017-2018-2019-2020.
Nissan Versa Wrench Maintenance Indicator Reset
Oil Reset Nissan Versa 2013 2014 Procedure
- Turn the ignition to the “RUN” position.
- The wrench symbol light will turn on for about 5 seconds, then turn off.
- Press the “TRIP’ button and hold for 3 seconds during the time the wrench symbol is illuminated.
- The symbol and distance display will begin to flash and will show the current interval.
- Press the “TRIP” button to increase the interval distance.
- Set to desired distance (up to 30,000km).
- Turn the ignition off to apply.
Nissan Versa TPMS Reset
TPMS with Easy Fill Tire Alert (if so equipped)
When adding air to an under-inflated tire, the TPMS with Easy Fill Tire Alert provides visual and audible signals outside the vehicle to help you inflate the tires to the recommended COLD tire pressure.
- Park the vehicle in a safe and level place.
- Apply the parking brake and place the shift lever into the P (Park) position.
- Place the ignition switch to the ON position. Do not start the engine.
TPMS Reset Operation:
- Add air to the tire.
- After a few seconds, the hazard indicators will start flashing.
- When the designated pressure is reached, the horn beeps once and the hazard indicators stop flashing.
- Perform the above steps for each tire.
- If the tire is over-inflated more than approximately 4 psi (30 kPa), the horn beeps and the hazard indicators flash 3 times. To correct the pressure, push the core of the valve stem on the tire briefly to release pressure. When the pressure reaches the designated pressure, the horn beeps once.
- If the hazard indicator does not flash within approximately 15 seconds after starting to inflate the tire, it indicates that the Easy Fill Tire Alert is not operating.
- The TPMS will not activate the Easy Fill
Tire Alert under the following conditions: – If there is interference from an external device or transmitter.
– The air pressure from the inflation device is not sufficient to inflate the tire.
– There is a malfunction in the TPMS system.
– There is a malfunction in the horn or hazard indicators.
– The identification code of the tire pressure sensor is not registered to the system.
– The battery of the tire pressure sensor is low.
- If the Easy Fill Tire Alert does not operate due to TPMS interference, move the vehicle about 3 ft (1 m) backward or forward and try again. If the Easy Fill Tire Alert is not working, use a tire pressure gauge.
TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS)
Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.)
As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.
Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.
Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the low tire pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists. When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to function properly.
● The TPMS does not monitor the tire pressure of the spare tire.
● The TPMS will activate only when the vehicle is driven at speeds above 16 mph (25 km/h). Also, this system may not detect a sudden drop in tire pressure (for example a flat tire while driving).
● The low tire pressure warning light does not automatically turn off when the tire pressure of your tires are adjusted. After the tires are inflated to the recommended pressure, the vehicle must be driven at speeds above 16 mph (25 km/h) to activate the TPMS and turn off the low tire pressure warning light. Use a tire pressure gauge to check the tire pressure.
● The CHECK TIRE PRES (pressure) warning message is displayed in the odometer when the low tire pressure warning light is illuminated and low tire pressure is detected. The CHECK TIRE PRES warning message turns off when the low tire pressure warning light turns off.
● The low tire pressure warning light remains illuminated until the tires are inflated to the recommended COLD tire pressure. The CHECK TIRE PRES warning message is displayed each time the ignition switch is placed in the ON position as long as the low tire pressure warning light remains illuminated.
● Tire pressure rises and falls depending on the heat caused by the vehicle’s operation and the outside temperature. Low outside temperature can lower the temperature of the air inside the tire which can cause a lower tire inflation pressure. This may cause the low tire pressure warning light to illuminate. If the warning light illuminates, check the tire pressure for all four tires.
● The Tire and Loading Information label (also referred to as the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label) is located in the driver’s door opening. For additional information, refer to “Low tire pressure warning light” in the “Instruments and controls” section and “Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)” in the “In case of emergency” section of this manual.
About Nissan Versa
Nissan Versa is an automobile nameplate used by the Japanese manufacturer Nissan in North America for the following models:
- Nissan Tiida: marketed as the first generation Nissan Versa from 2006 to 2012, the sedan, and from 2006 to 2013, the hatchback version.
- Nissan Latio: marketed as the second generation Nissan Versa sedan from 2012 to 2019. Nissan performed a minor facelift on these models from 2015-2019.
- Nissan Note: the second generation, marketed as the Nissan Versa Note from 2013 to 2019.
- Nissan Almera: the third generation Nissan Almera (or 2nd generation Versa sedan), produced or sold in some African and Asian markets like Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Africa and Malaysia, Mauritius, Philippines, Thailand in Asia, and other Asian countries. Nearly identical to the USDM Nissan Versa sedan, with very minor differences. Also primarily RHD (Right-hand Drive). Nissan performed a minor facelift on these models from 2015-2019.
According to a Nissan press release in 2008, “versa” is short for “versatile space” meant to imply the spaciousness of the interior and configurable cargo arrangements.
