Tire Minder Booster

We had Tire Minders installed on all of our Champagne tires several months ago. The readouts keep stating No Sensors. We are certain this is because the Booster is located inside the battery compartment.

Where do you have the booster located for your tire pressure monitor?

(Posting here and on Facebook since we are going to seller Wednesday to move the monitor and hope to get a quick answer)

Inside front storage compartment just in front of battery storage.

Have they ever worked correctly? Take your readout and place it close to one of the sensors and see if it reads the TP. If not they may need to be paired.

I have them on my motorhome and toad. 10 sensors in all. They have all worked since I installed them and we get the read outs on our iPad connected through Bluetooth to the adapter. We have never used the booster and get the signals from the rear of the road car with the adapter just behind the driverís seat. That is with a 30 foot motorhome and a Ford Fiesta.

Maybe you donít need the booster. Try with just the adapter and see if you get any signal.

We have a TT and put our extender on the Propane tank cover. It has worked flawlessly for 22K miles.

Mine are in on the shelf above my batteries more towards the front compartment. But do what DSurette suggests to do, making sure your display is paired up with the sensors. This should have been done before they were first installed.

When we had our Mini Lite we mounted it on the plastic "battery box", that was located inside a metal pick up truck box. We added a switch to the configuration for use. Just clicked the toggle switch, saw the green light on the repeater light up, and then turned on the tireminder in the truck. Never had a problem.

On our fifth wheel, did the same thing, except this time its in the front basement compartment. Still never had a problem. But my write up made me think of 2 things:

First, the green light on the repeater. Do you see that light on? Maybe the repeater lost power.
Second: Perhaps your sensors need new batteries.

After service, they are now working. But just in case, where on the pinbox is yours located. Doesn't that make it bump a lot with some highways?

Thanks for all the replies. The tire minders were repaired in a shop today. I don't really know what they did, but the pressure readings are correct (for now). We will watch and use some of this advice if they don't continue to work right.

When I was at the Goshen Rally last year, I was able to swap my bad monitor for another. The person who swapped out the monitors took the codes in the bad monitor and put them into the new monitor. Thus I didn't have to go into any teach mode when I got back to my unit as it was already done.

Even though I had my repeater going, I was still surprised that the monitors were picking up my 5ers tire pressures in the building on the west side of the fairgrounds while my unit was in the middle of the racetrack on the east side of the fairgrounds. That had to be almost 1/3 to 1/2 mile (as the crow flies) through buildings and other interferences.
