Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

The contact owns a 2009 Nissan Murano. The contact stated that the tire pressure warning light remained illuminated. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the TPMS sensor needed to be reset. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure recurred. The VIN was excluded from NHTSA campaign number: 09V393000 (tires). The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 125,000.

Supplemental air bag warning light will not turn off, also passenger air bag status light remains lit even with adult riding in passenger seat. Air bag safety should not fail on a car ever. TPMS light will not turn off with tires inflated at proper pressure.

2009 Nissan Murano TPMS failure. Failure light continuously on. Dealer suggests that to fix the problem one needs to over inflate the tires to a minimum of 36 psi. Recommended pressure on placard is 32psi. Says that it is due to living at high altitude and cold weather. The dealer makes you sign a disclaimer that states "I understand that over inflating tires may keep the TPMS light from coming back on, and that tires will wear unevenly and prematurely. I wish to have my tire pressure set at a higher than recommended in hopes of the TPMS light not coming on due to cold weather or high altitude". they tell me that this is the only way to resolve the issue. Also they state that "caution!! over inflating will cause the tires to wear unevenly and prematurely and is not recommended by the factory due to safety concerns. This is not the recommended solution to the issue, but is one course of action". the other solution is that you must live with it when the tires are inflated to recommended pressure of 32psi.

I am experiencing a serious safety issue with my 2009 Nissan Murano. I am notifying the NHTSA of this issue because it needs further investigation. I am stunned that Nissan has been so careless with my safety, especially in the wake of the Toyota debacle. There is an open recall on my vehicle's make and model for its faulty tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). The Nissan recall number is 09V393000, which states that the TPMS is flawed and prone to corrosion and failure due to a faulty nut used in the manufacturing process. The recall affects vehicles in northern states where the salty roads excessively corrodes the nut used to manufacture the 2009 TPMS, at which point "the tire will quickly lose air pressure at a consistent rate resulting in a flat tire increasing the risk of a crash, " according to the Nissan recall. I was not aware of the recall until my car failed inspection recently. Nissan's Consumer Affairs department has denied service to my vehicle. They claim that my VIN number doesn't apply to the recall. After inspecting my car, ira Nissan in tewksbury, MA stated in its report that my vehicle is clearly affected by the TPMS defect. Nissan headquarters states my vehicle was not manufactured with the nut in question - the nut that the company has publicly acknowledged is seriously flawed. My response? then the evidence suggests this issue is much larger in scope than this one nut from this one vendor. Nissan is unwilling to acknowledge they have a larger issue on their hands. Perhaps there were multiple vendors that provided other flawed nuts in the TPMS. Or perhaps the nut is not the source of the problem at all. Whatever the case, this safety issue needs further investigation. This flaw affects the tires - a critical piece to the safety of any vehicle. The safety of thousands of consumers is at stake. The parallels to the Toyota debacle is striking. A very small piece of equipment is putting drivers and passengers at risk... unbeknownst to them.
