TPMS

Last summer three of my TPMS transmitters quite quit working almost a year to the day after I installed them. I have the flow thru TST system all suffered dead batteries. This year while the rig is in winter storage at my shop I removed the transmitters and batteries, I put each in its own zip lock bag marked with the tire location. It will be interesting to see how long they last this summer.

Well it will be interesting to see your results.

I am pretty sure I've read once the sensors (transmitters) are unscrewed from the valve stem, the unit disconnects the battery. Not sure you would have needed to remove the battery if you removed the sensors.

thanks I'm going to reread the info if it is like you say I'll get a jump on things and put the batteries back in the transmitters.

I had 2 of the same sensors quit working so I changed the batteries and they wouldn't work after that. One was the right rear outside dual and the right rear of the 5er. No need for a repeater as they worked just fine without one. I called the company as I was wondering whether or nor I had to reprogram them. They said I shouldn't have to. My TPMS is a few years old now. The company replaced one of the sensors free of charge once already. Maybe I should give them another call on these two.

Iím having trouble with the sensor on my spare. I upgraded to the color monitor in November, and changed the batteries in all sensors at that time. Everything tested good. We took a short trip in mid December and at sometime on the way home the spare tire sensor dropped off line. I was thinking maybe I should explore the idea of a repeater. To troubleshoot, I parked the truck next to the 5th wheel so that the monitor would be only a few feet away from the spare tire, cycled the monitor off and back on, and came back thirty minutes to check the results. It still doesnít pick up that transmitter. Iíve been meaning to try another battery, but I just havenít gotten around to it. Iíll report back when I do.

Les I'd recheck the battery as I have found you can get a bad one right out of the box. Recheck the 0 ring make sure it seated right, very touchy and you also may have gotten moisture in it. Just a thought. Later RJD

Once you take them off the TT wheel, it stops the battery output no need to store with battery out, unless your afraid of battery leakage. I found the less you take them apart the better...

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

Yep, parked the TT. Hall the motorcycle trailer to the TT now. Much easier.

You are 100% correct I just checked with TST for my model, guess I'll reinstall the batteries.
