Nissan Versa / Versa SL (2007-2019)

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 Versa / Versa SL 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 Versa / Versa SL, 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 Versa / Versa SL can be found in the VT56, VT55, and VT36 TPMS Tools in “Service TPMS”.

Type of TPMS frequency:

  • 315 MHz

Type of Relearn procedures:

  • OBD relearn

Type of TPMS tool required for TPMS reset

  • TPMS scan tool with OBD module (VT56, VT46 brands)
  • TPMS activation tool combined with a Diagnostic Scan Tool (VT15, VT31, VT36, VT46 branded tools)
  • TPMS activation tool combined with the Quickset

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

OBD Relearn, Quickset Tool and TPMS Activation Tool combo for DIY’ers:

The video below demonstrates an OBD relearn a Hyundai Azera, but the same procedure will work for most Nissan vehicles, including the Nissan Versa. To check to see if the QUICKSET is compatible with your vehicle, check the compatibility chart in the QUICKSET PRODUCT PAGE.

Be sure to have the TPMS sensor ID information for the sensors in the wheels that are not currently registered with the vehicle. Use a TPMS activation or trigger tool that displays the sensor ID’s on the screen, such as a VT31 or VT36 to read the TPMS sensor ID’s, then be sure to write them down.

Next, make sure the ATQUICKSET software is installed on your PC. Connect the tool to your PC using the USB cable that comes with the kit.

  • Open the ATQuickset software on your PC. Select NEW VEHICLE at the top of the screen. Select the vehicle MAKE, MODEL and YEAR you are working with. Select OK to continue.
  • Disconnect the tool from the PC, turn the ignition ON.
  • Connect the Quickset to your vehicle’s DLC underneath the dash. The LED indicator light will blink green.
  • Press either WINTER or SUMMER on the Quickset, depending on which tires you are swapping out. The LED indicator light should be solid green indicating it can now be disconnected.
  • Connect the Quickset to your PC, press the SUMMER or WINTER button on the ATQuickset software for the tires that are installed at the moment.
  • Next, the software will instruct you to enter the TPMS sensor ID’s for the other season, beginning with the left front sensor. Select SAVE TO QUICKSET once all ID’s are entered. Continue to follow the on-screen instructions.
  • Once all the steps have been completed, the Quickset should now have programmed to easily switch between summer and winter tires through the OBDII port with the press of the summer or winter button. The TPMS sensor ID’s will be written to the vehicle’s ECU.

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.
