Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: Diagnosis system (BCM)

CONSULT-III Function (BCM)

CONSULT-III DIAGNOSTIC MODES

CONSULT-III can display each diagnostic item using the diagnostic test modes shown following.

DESCRIPTION

During driving, the tire pressure monitoring system receives the signal transmitted from the transmitter installed in each wheel, and turns on the low tire pressure warning lamp when the tire pressure becomes low.

The control unit (BCM) for this system has pressure judgement and self-diagnosis functions.

FUNCTION

When the tire pressure monitoring system detects low inflation pressure or an internal malfunction, the low tire pressure warning lamp in the combination meter comes on. The malfunction is indicated by the low tire pressure warning lamp flashing.

CONSULT-III Application to Tire Pressure Monitoring System

× : Applicable

– : Not applicable

Data Monitor Mode

NOTE: Before performing the self-diagnosis, be sure to register the ID, or the actual malfunction location may be different from that displayed on CONSULT-III.

Self-Diagnosis (Without CONSULT-III)

SELF DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURE (WITHOUT CONSULT-III)

1. Turn ignition switch ON.

2. Ground the tire pressure warning check connector to initiate self diagnosis.

3. Compare the flashing pattern with the flash code chart below.

NOTE: The system is normal when the low tire pressure warning lamp flashes 5 times and continues repeating. Selfdiagnosis results are erased automatically by turning the ignition switch “OFF”.
