The 2013 Nissan Maxima is equipped with a system that monitors tire pressure, making it easy to keep tabs on your vehicle’s tires. However, this system only works effectively when the owner knows how to best utilize it. Let’s cover the basics every owner needs to know about the system that monitors tire pressure on the 2013 Nissan Maxima.
First of all, keep in mind that a message on your display will tells you if your tire pressure needs to be checked. And a low pressure warning light will be active in the event that one or more of your tires is either low on pressure or requires more air. When you see these lights or warnings appear, it’s time to stop and check your vehicle.
To check the tire pressure, make sure the tires are cold. This means that the car should have been parked for at least three hours, or it should have been driven for less than a mile at a moderate speed. Once the tire pressure is adjusted, the vehicle should be driven above 16 miles per hour. At this time the check-tire-pressure warning message and/or low tire pressure warning should disappear.
You may experience a situation where the low pressure warning light appears, flashes for a minute or less, and then stays on. When this happens, it means the system isn’t working quite as it should. It’s best to visit Nissan 24 in Brockton so we can take a closer look and find out what’s going on.
Another thing to keep in mind: The tire pressure will rise and fall depending on the heat of the vehicle’s operation as well as how hot or cold it is outside. Low temperatures can lead to lower tire pressure and could cause the warning light to come on. However, it’s always wise to check the tire pressure any time you see the display light up.
Remember that checking the tire pressure in the spare tire is important as well. The Tire and Loading Information on the spare tire will give you information on its optimal pressure.
