2005 Pathfinder SE Tire Pressure Monitor System

Postby falcondrgn » Tue Nov 11, 2008 4:53 am

Hi,

Does anyone know of the 2005 SE comes standard with tire pressure monitoring system? I just bought a used 2005 se but dont know if it has the tire pressure monitoring system or not, is there a way I can check to see if it does? Thanks

I could be wrong but I think all R51's have this. I know for sure that all cars made after 07 have it.

TPMS was standard on the '05 SE. To verify for yourself, deflate one of your tires to ~25 PSI and drive around for a couple of minutes, making sure that you get over 20 MPH or so. You should get a yellow idiot light and an extremely long and loud alarm.

I haven't messed with an SE but do they not have the LCD display panels? If they do have them there should be a screen in there that you can actually switch to and see the current psi's the monitors are reporting. If there is no lcd then my information is useless.

On mine, if the tire got below 30psi, it would go off. I had 2 leaking tires so I had to deal with this quite frequently. A loud beep goes off for about 6 seconds, along with the light (little amber tire light next to the "no seatbelt" light) on the gauge cluster. After the beep stopped, the light stays on until you fill them up. Usually after filling them up, it'd take a min or two to clear the light.

The LCD would be nice, because my setup doesn't tell you what tire it is, or how low that tire(s) is either.

is it possible to get a lcd system from a newer model and hook it up to an 05 model?

The lcd on 08's don't tell you which tire it is either.

It just lists them from top to bottom.

you should just be able to give the key a partial turn to get all of the dash warning lights lit (i am sure there is a more technical term for this...). the tire pressure warning light is yellow/amber icon of a partially deflated tire w/ and exclamation point in it.

i would assume that if you truck is equipped w/ a sensor, the light should come on.

I'm sure you could but I'm betting it would be cost in-efficient.

To be honest it's not really all that good anyways for being able to pinpoint which tire is low. Like others have noted the psi's are listed top to bottom. The sensors aren't keyed to an individual receiver so lets say out of the factory the sensors are listed FL, FR, RL, RR, the first tire rotation it's not out of wack so you have to manually check the psi on each tire to determine which one is low.

I do like how accurate mine have been though. Set it to 50psi w/a manual gauge, take it for a spin and shortly down the road when the sensors activate all spot on at 50psi.

My '05 SE Off-Road came with it... If you look at the tire stem they will be metal not rubber also if you turn the key on all the dash indicator light will come on for a short time... If you look in your owners manual it will tell you where the location of the light is on the dash... Hope this helps.......... Triffid

Did anyone have problems after changing to a larger tire?

Nope, unless I have to air things down a LOT from the 47-48PSI I normally run. I kind of miss the thing alerting me to add some air.

For the last couple of days Ive tryed 35 psi and the PF rides great. I do not have the TPMS light on at all. Does anyone know the PIS that the light come on at?
