"Nissan's Easy-Fill Tire Alert system is straight forward and eliminates the need to keep a tire gauge in our vehicle's glove compartment. By making this unique Nissan innovation available on all our future products, the guessing and the gauge vanishes for our customers," said Pierre Loing, Vice President of Product Planning for Nissan North America.
According to Nissan, an all-new control module, which is currently being phased into vehicle redesigns like the all new 2013 Nissan Altima. Explaining further on the functioning of the latest technology, the official statement said:
"First, the vehicle's tire pressure warning system alerts a driver to a low tire; and on some models displays the current pressure and tire or tires that require attention on the dashboard display. When alerted, drivers should stop at the nearest gas station to fill the tire with an available air hose. Once air begins flowing into the tire, the vehicle's four way flashers come on to confirm the process has started. And when the air is let out of the tire, the horn chirps once to indicate the correct pressure has been reached."
