What if my sensors are not reading?

If you find that your sensors are not reading, we recommend changing the sensor batteries. Be sure to use only a 3-volt lithium battery.

  • For TPMS 2000 use CR 1632.
  • For TPMS 3000 use CR 2032.
The alarm keeps sounding on the monitor – what should I do?

Check that the tyre pressures set up for each axel are set up correctly for your tyres. As a rule, we recommend +/- 15-20 PSI above and below the actual pressure of your tyres.

Do I need to adjust the pressure parameters?

Yes, any changes made in the pressure settings require re-adjustment of your parameters.

I am not getting any readings on the monitor, why?

The sensors require calibration to the monitor. Start your vehicle and drive for at least 10 minutes to allow for the monitor to adjust to the settings.

I have a sensor on my spare tyre, what parameters do I set?

The PSI setting should be +/- 15 the current pressure you have in your tyre.

What parameters do I set in the monitor? Will the alarm sound?

You cannot set the lowest setting on the monitor to 8 PSI, the alarm will sound. If you have 8 PSI in your tyres you must have the tyres pumped to 9 PSI or 10 PSI for the lowest setting to be set at 8 PSI.

When I put the sensors on my valve stems, the sensor shakes and scratches my mags. How can I stop this?

Cover the sensors with foam, garden hose or insulation.

When I place the sensor on my valve stem, it lets out the air from the tyre. Why?

There are a few reasons that may cause air to leak from the tyre, including:

  • The O-Ring in the sensor may be worn and is therefore not sealing properly
  • The small O-Ring that contacts the air valve is not sealed correctly
  • The sensor may be faulty
  • The valve system may be faulty

Note: The tyre will expel air for the sensor to read the tyre pressure and temperature so some leaking is normal.

Why is my monitor not working?

If the monitor is permanently plugged into the power supply this may cause internal damage to the battery due to the heat generated. Ensure your monitor is unplugged from the power supply when not in use.

Why are all the tyre icons not appearing on my monitor?

Be sure you follow the programming procedures in the TPMS manual.

Am I able to buy additional sensors if I lose/damage them or would like to monitor additional tyres?

Yes, you can purchase our sensors individually by calling us at 1800 078 338.

How do I make sure my sensors are secure on my wheels and are not susceptible to being stolen?

Our TPMS system comes included with a protective cap to go over the sensors along with a brass locking nut to ensure the sensor is properly protected and secure from theft.

How many sensors come in a TPMS Kit?

Our TPMS Kits are customisable and can accommodate multiple configurations from 2 sensors and up to 22 sensors.

Our most popular kits are:

4 TPMS Sensors

6 TPMS Sensors

8 TPMS Sensors

How to charge the TPMS Monitor?

Your TPMS Monitor is supplied with a Micro-USB Charger with a cigarette lighter adapter, to preserve the lifespan of your monitor, only plug in your monitor when it requires charging. Do not keep the TPMS Monitor constantly plugged in.

I have a single axel (van) with 4 tyres on the rear, the inside tyres are not reading, why?

The extension rod/valve extenders may be blocked or contaminated restricting airflow. You may need to clean or change the extenders.

Temperature and Pressure not reading: How to troubleshoot?

1. Check the following parameters have been set accordingly (insert instructions)

2. The batteries in the sensors are new, or changed recently

3. The unit has not been hardwired or permanently left on charge.
