I followed the exact steps as posted by Kornhole.  It worked perfectly.  Thank you very much.

I have a 2005 SE 6-speed with 130k miles on it. It's a
solid truck, except for the tailgate hinges and fuel
sending unit. Poor engineering in my opinion.

My TPMS indicator light comes on after driving about 40
minutes on the interstate at anywhere from 60-80 mph. It
burns steady until I stop and turn it off. It has done
this ever since I bought it.

When I demoed it, they had $3000 (dealer's invoice)
ghetto rims on it with low profile tires. When I told the
sales guy wasn't interested in the rims, he gave me 17"
265/65 4-spoke rims.

Could this be why my TPMS is malfunctioning and will the
above re-learning procedures help? Thanks!

I have replaced two TPMS sensors and the light is on again with another bad sensor.  Guess what?  It will stay on as I am not giving Nissan any more money for these.  I can get the truck through inspection with the light on.  These things are a joke.

I can confirm the above
procedure works on '07 Frontiers as well. Reset my
tpms light last night and everything worked fine. Had
a very cold night a couple of nights ago and it
tripped a low voltage code in the morning that made my
TPMS light blink. Local tire store could read that
sensors were working correctly later in the day but
could not reset the system - recommended I take it to
the deal for reset. Used this procedure instead and
saved me a trip and some money.

One important item is that the tire pressures used
for relearn/reset need to be set fairly accurately.
The first time I tried, they were not and the
relearn/reset failed. You will know because the drive
time for reset increases to 15-30 minutes until the
system times out. At this point you will hear a long
audible beep from the dash and the TPMS light will
stay on solid. This is the main difference from a
positive reset (in positive reset, the light goes out
with no audible sound, stays out a bit and then comes
back on due to low pressure in RR tire). It will
remain on solid until the system is reset or you start
the relearn/reset mode again. If this happens, just
make sure you have a good gage, reset your tire
pressures, and follow the procedures above again and
it should reset.

I used slightly different pressures based on a
different post that also worked:

<BLOCKQUOTE style="MARGIN-RIGHT: 0px" dir=ltr>

RF to 34psi, LF to 31psi, LR to 28 psi and RR to

<P dir=ltr>Thanks Kornhole!

This process worked perfect for me. I'd use the
pressure indicated in this post. This is GOLD for
TPMS problems!!!!!

After scouring the interwebs I was
unable to find a true do it yourself method for resetting
the tire pressure sensors in my Frontier that didn't
require special tools. Managed to figure it out so thought
I should share. I've done it twice now (switching summers
/ winters) on my '06 Frontier, can't confirm it works on
other models, but would think that it should work on 05+
Frontiers and Xterra's at the very least.1. Set your tire
pressures to the following:<div style="margin-left:
40px;">Front Left - 36 psiFront Right - 33 psiRear Right -
30 psiRear Left - 27 psi2. Turn the Ignition to "ON"
but don't start the engine (key on, engine off).3. Ground
the TPMS plug 5 or 6 times, about once per second seems to
work. This is a small white plug under the dash by the
drivers right foot, right with the ODBII plug. You can get
a special tool to ground this out, or use a wire,
paperclip, needle, etc pushed into the plug (Don't use
something too big) and touch it to the metal bracket
that's conveniently right there (See pictures below). The
tire pressure light on the dash should start flashing
slowly and will continue to do so.4. Start your vehicle
and go for a drive, apparently you have to drive over 15
km/h, and it seems to take 10 minutes or so. Then the tire
pressure light goes out for a bit, and comes back on
(because you have a tire down at 27 psi).5. Fill your
tires back up to recommended pressure, and the light will
go out.6. Live happily ever after.Location of the plug you
need (with a needle stuck in it):

Thank you SO MUCH for this! I tried it on my 2008
Pathfinder this morning, and it worked perfectly!
Seeing the numbers pop up on the display let me know it
worked for sure.
