SPECIAL TOOLS NEEDED? Yes. A CONSULT scan tool or Signal Tech II Tool (J-50190) may be used for some tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) procedures. A Transmitter Activation Tool (J-45295) is used in the wake-up procedure and can aid in the registration procedure if using the CONSULT tool system.

A sensor-transmitter integrated with a valve (installed on each wheel) on 2004-2012 Nissan Pathfinders transmits a detected air pressure signal in the form of a radio wave.
