09V393000NISSAN NORTH AMERICA, INC.from 05/29/2008 to 07/03/2009V (Vehicle)14322311/09/2009MFRNISSAN NORTH AMERICA, INC.10/05/200910/07/2009
Defect SummaryNissan is recalling certain model year 2008-2010 vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of connecticut, delaware, iowa, illinois, indiana, massachusetts, maine, maryland, michigan, minnesota, missouri, new hampshire, new jersey, new york, ohio, pennsylvania, rhode island, vermont, washington d.c., west virginia and wisconsin. the material in the nut used to secure the sensor-transmitter of the tire pressure monitoring system (tpms) may corrode and potentially crack in areas with heavy concentrations of road salt. if this occurs, the nut may come out of the sensor-transmitter and the tpms lamp will illuminate.
Consequence SummaryIf the tpms lamp is disregarded and the vehicle continues to be driven in this condition, the tire will quickly lose air pressure at a consistent rate resulting in a flat tire increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective SummaryThe dealer will replace the tpms nut with a new, more robust nut. this service will be performed free of charge. the recall is expected to begin on or before november 9, 2009. owners may contact nissan at 1-800-647-7261 and infiniti at 1-800-662-6200.
NotesOwners may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov .

 On my 2008 nissan rogue my tire pressure light has been consistently coming on. i have taken my car back to the dealership on several occasions just for them to tell me the were no codes and that they just reset it. i called nissan and they say the only documented occurrence is the last one from last week because it went tot he service department rather than the body shop (my car was in an accident early last year but the tire pressure is unrelated to that.) nissan has advised me to take the rogue in yet again to have a diagnostics done. when i asked what happens when they just reset and the light comes on again what will i do? just keep going back to the shop? she said she couldn't help me any further all she could tell me to do is take it back to the shop. *tr
