Hi All - in the process of getting my rear wheel refurbed after catching it on a curb (bad day) but the company Im using has discovered that the TMPS sensor and valve is damaged and needs replacing (gggrrr).

Ive looked online (Tpmscentre.co.uk) and I can get a TPMS sensor and valve from them for £40. However there are two options, one is 370zs between October 2008 and June 2014. The second is for 370zs between June 2014 and March 2016.

My V1 was registered in September 2014, so Im assuming I should go for the latter... any thoughts?

Obviously my other choice is to phone my dealer... does anyone know the part number?

Any help is appreciated, as always.

I don't know the difference between the two Cloudy but your logic seems sound.

 

I've had a look on Amayama (our usual go to site for this sort of query) but can't find any TPMS info. I have come across this site here which seems to list the part - the top one - but worth double checking I would suggest.

The Nismo V1 is considered to be a 2013 car.  The 2014 Car is the V2.  There were no changes to the V1 in 2013-14 and the odd car which was sold in 2015.  I am not sure why there is such a age division.  Unless they changes the TPMS technology in some way.  I have looked at the site and both are listed as 433Mhz.

 

I would probably phone them as if they ship the wrong product they might agree to swap it.  But technically its a 2013 car. Strange though they don't list anything for recent cars making me think the database they have needs to be updated.

 

This company seems to list them as two variants as well (but doesn't separate between Coupe and Roadster)

Does the place you are using have the kit to do the reprogramming of the TPMS?

Neutreus/Lesmo - thanks for your help.

Ive just ordered a new sensor from Nissan at £82 (seems a bit steep), although theyre not sure whether it comes with the valve.

I think Ill also give TPMS warehouse a call and see what they say and if need be order one through them as well. I will report back on what happens.

Regarding reprogramming TPMS, the little company Im using dont have the kit to do it. Ive searched online and discovered how to do it using a paper clip, although half tempted to get my own OBD reader.

I have watched the video online this morning.  I think it was a Altima - but I wasn't sure about it.  I am not sure that re-learns the actual address of the sensor or not.  (To be honest I was being lazy and trying to find out without watching it).

 

I started to watch the various video's most seem to imply its done from the ODBII Port as you say.

Most tyre fitters can install a cloned TPMS sensor for around £60.

I had 2 put on the gtr last year from a leaking corroded collar.

Quick update...

In the end I ordered a new sensor (cloned) and valve stem from TPMS Warehouse. The guys there were really helpful, shared a photo of the old sensor and they quickly confirmed which version I needed. Paid £45 with free delivery. Arrived at the company I was using to the refurb the wheel the next day.

As for the wheel, I had that refurbished at a local place to me called the Wheel Doctor. Based in Smallfield, Surrey - near Gatwick. Wheel looks good as new and given the fantastic job theyve done in also refurbishing my wifes diamond cut alloys I would highly recommend them.

Thanks for the update, it's good to know.

 

I'm impressed how long the batteries last on these things.  Has anyone heard of a battery fail?

Probably lasts about the same length of time as in a USB Memory stick...

(Hope that reminds any of you not to depend on them for long term storage!)

Firstly thanks for this thread, as until it cropped up, i didn't realise i had TPMS!

 

So then i sat in the car on Monday lunchtime, with the handbook, and had a look. Found the warning light on the dash, but couldn't find anything about how you set it/what pressure it's set at/how much pressure you need to lose for it to warn you, etc. Thought nothing more, guessed i need do nothing.

 

Got in the car this morning to go to work - guess which warning light stayed on! I kid you not! Spooky!

 

The car has been sitting around going almost nowhere since a reoccurance of my back problem mid Jan, so i wasn't surprised that the tyres might need a check. i'm thankfully pretty much back to normal now, thank goodness.

 

So, the answer to the question, how much pressure does the tyre need to lose for it to warn you? appears to be 5PSI. (I normally run 36, although the door panel says 35, and the rear left was the lowest, at 30). All sorted now, no more warning light.

 

A happy end to my 6th year of Z ownership anniverZary!
