TPMS diagnostic information – Nissan Rogue 2008-2019




After the TREAD Act was mandated in 2007, all vehicles manufactured in the United States beginning in 2008, must be installed with direct or indirect TPMS systems.

The Nissan Rogue uses a direct TPMS system, which means TPMS sensors are installed in the wheel. If one or more tires indicate low tire pressure, the TPMS sensors will transfer the information to the vehicle’s ECU. An indicator light (low-line TPMS system) or each tire pressure will show on the dash (high-line TPMS system).

When a sensor is replaced in one or more tires of a Nissan Rogue, an OBD TPMS relearn is recommended to write the ID’s to the vehicle’s ECU.

Type of TPMS system:

  • Direct TPMS, sensors are installed in the wheel
  • All OE and aftermarket TPMS part numbers and service kit replacement options for the Nissan Rogue can be found in the VT56, VT55, and VT36 TPMS Tools in “Service TPMS”.

Type of TPMS frequency:

  • 315 MHz and 433 MHz, depending on the year. Use the VT56, VT55VT31 or VT36 to activate the sensor determine which frequency you are working with before servicing TPMS.

Type of Relearn procedures:

  • OBD relearn

Type of TPMS tool required for TPMS reset

OBD relearn procedure:

  • OBDII dongle is required
  • Confirm TPMS sensors are properly installed
  • Adjust tire pressures to placard value
  • Hold TPMS tool on left front tire sidewall next to the valve stem
  • Repeat for the right front, right rear and left rear tires
  • Apply OBD module to the DLC
  • Turn ignition ON
  • Press OK on TPMS tool to transfer sensor data to the ECU
  • Disconnect OBD module from DLC
  • Turn ignition OFF, then ON
  • Drive for up to 20 minutes

Troubleshooting tips

  • Some Nissan models DLC’s are designed differently than other vehicles. This can cause a transfer failure if the connection between the OBDII module and DLC is weak. If you come across a transfer failure issue with the Nissan, try to put upward pressure on the OBDII module, this will ensure a good connection, and the TPMS sensor ID’s will now successfully transfer to the vehicle’s ECU.

  • Some years use different frequencies, 315 MHz or 433 MHz, for the Nissan Rogue, Sport, or Select. We recommend checking the sensor frequency before replacing a TPMS sensor. Use the VT56, VT55, VT36 or VT31 to diagnose the sensor frequency by activating the sensor; the tool will display which frequency you are working with.

TPMS DTC code information

Use the VT56 to retrieve Nissan TPMS DTC codes by selecting the “Service” icon. After selecting the Make, Model, and Year, select the DTC code icon. Use the OBDII module to retrieve the Nissan DTC TPMS information to diagnose and service the TPMS issues determined.
