The dealer or a tire store with the proper equipment do it. Discount Tire can do it much cheaper than the dealer.

Easy TPMS Reset Instructions

I just like to share my experiments with resetting the TPMS on my 2010 Armada Platinum. I found the attached post on a Nissan forum and it works pretty well as listed.
I bought 4 new winter tires, with wheels and sensors. After install, the TPMS obviously didn't recognize the new wheels.
Procedure:
1. If you don't have a TPMS reset tool, set your tire pressures as follows:
FL = 36psi; FR = 33psi; RR = 30 psi; RL = 27 psi
2. Find the little white TPMS connector. In my Armada, it was taped to the wires going to the OBD connector, above the gas pedal.
3. Stick a 10" or so piece of wire into the connector, ensure it connects the pin inside the connector. Leave the other end dangling.
4. Turn the ignition switch to ON (don't start the truck yet), wait for your dash warning lights to go off.
5. Touch the free end of the wire to the bare metal bracket (i.e. ground it) 5 times within 10 seconds. If successful, your TPMS warning light on the dash starts flashing. This means you've put the computer in learning mode.
6. Start the truck and drive it for about 10 - 15 minutes, at speeds over 40 km/hr. The TPMS sensors in the wheels will wake up and advertise their presence to the monitoring system. The monitoring system knows which wheel is which due to the pressure differentials. Once the system registers the new sensors, the flashing light will go off and your display (if fitted) will show the 4 pressures.
7. Shortly after, the light may come on again, because your left rear tire pressure is too low. So don't forget to reinflate your tires to proper pressures again.

A few other notables:
- The display shows tire pressures in the order I indicated above, i.e. from Front Left (at top) to FR, RR and Rear Left (at bottom) clockwise around the truck.
- My TPMS readings are about 3 psi lower than my gauge.

Hope this will help someone else too. Now I'm comfortable I can reset the system again in the spring when I put the summers back on.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - Nissan Armada - Reset

Hello George,

I checked out a post that you made in 2010 on resetting the Tire Pressure Monitoring System for your Armada. I was wondering if you had a few minutes, whether you could take a quick picture of the TPMS wire harness connector (you describe it as a white wire) and post it to this site, so that anyone reading this forum knows exactly what wire to ground out in order to carry out this procedure. I have a 2004 Armada and was wanting to do this, but didn't want to short out something else by accident. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Also, my 2004 Armada does not have a display monitor in which a readout of individual tire pressures are shown. I don't think this should matter though. Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Ron

The plug is white but the wire was another color (2007 armada) and it was taped to the wires just behind the diagnostic plugin. The plug is a two pin but has only one wire and it was blue with a white stripe on mine. Make sure you vary the tire pressure as instructed regardless of whether your vehicle displays which tire is low. Below is a picture of the plug and just follow the instructions. There is also a kit available on Amazon but a wire/paper clip work just as well.

Hi all..
Thanks for the valuable info.
But did anyone try to reset the TPMS by simply disconnecting the battery (both + & -)???
What effect would this have on the Armada??

you would still have to stagger the pressure in all tires. so the white connector (in my post above) and a paper clip method is still less work. If you try disconnecting the battery let us know what happens. good luck

I put aftermarket valve caps on and they seized, the dealer would not try to remove them, now I understand why.

I just tried to take one off and snapped the whole POS off. I called Discount tire where I got my current tires and they told me they can replace and program it for $60 all in (not nec. to take off wheel, just pop bead). I called stealership and they said $102 for part and $30-40 to take off tire and install it.

No brainer.
