FAQ

Can I program replacement Sensors?

Yes you can order and program replacement LEARNABLE sensors to the complete range of TYREDOG™ products.

Each unit has a learning mode which allows the user to program in new replacement LEARNABLE sensors.

When ordering replacement Sensors, you must ensure you order the correct Sensor to suit your unit and the correct Wheel Position must be ordered.
For Example: For the TYREDOG™ TD-1000A-X model, if you require a Rear Right (RR) Sensor, then you must order a LEARNABLE Rear Right (RR) Sensor.
Replacement LEARNABLE sensors are available for each tyre location.

Go to the Replacement Parts section on this site to find the complete range of available Sensors.

Why isn't one of more of my sensors working?

If any one of your sensors stop working, please remove the battery from that sensor and replace with a battery from a known working sensor.
Providing the monitor is on, as soon as you insert the known working battery, the sensor should come online.
If this fixes your problem, then you'll need to purchase a replacement battery.
If this doesn't fix the problem, then you will need to contact us or your place of purchase so the problem can be resolved.

Sensors working intermittently on Relay kits (TD-2000A-X/TD-2300A-X/2700F-X)
Firstly please make sure the relay has been mounted outside & underneath the vehicle. If the relay is mounted inside the vehicle or under a bonnet, your device will work intermittently. It will need to be repositioned to outside the vehicle. Check Sensors are within range of the relay.

If this doesn't fix the problem, then you will need to contact us or your place of purchase so the problem can be resolved.

Are the Sensors Water and Dust Proof and will they handle river crossings?

Yes, providing the cap has been tightened up properly, the TYREDOG™wireless Sensors have been designed to be completely sealed.

This means they are Water, Dust and Mud Proof and river crossings will not be a problem.
Just be sure they are rinsed off after entering any salt water.

Each Sensor has a rubber Seal which prevents water, condensation, dirt, dust and mud from damaging the device.

What is the estimated battery life and where can I purchase them?

External Type (X) Sensors - The Estimated Battery Life will be approximately 1 year. It all depends on how often or how many hours the vehicle is used and the quality of the battery.
Each sensor contains 1 x 3V CR1632 Battery. The cost of a replacement battery will range from $3 to $6 and are available from most leading electronic stores. Alternatively you can purchase them through our website in the Replacement Parts Section.

Monitor / Receiver - The Estimated Battery Life is also around 1 Year. This also depends on how often the device is being used. If the monitor is left on, it will automatically switch off and go into sleep mode. This helps reduce the battery life and the monitor will automatically switch on again once it detects movement. The Monitor / Receiver will contain 1 to 2 standard AAA or AA batteries (Depending on the model).

The TD-1000A-X, TD-1300A-X and TD-2000A-X series all come with a DC adaptor which can also be used the power the Monitor / Receiver. (Note: TD-1000A and TD-1300A are compatible with 12V DC only where as the TD-2000A series is 12V/24V DC compatible)

The Sensors look easy to steal, can they be secured?

Each kit contains a SecureFit fixing ring which once installed will help prevent Sensor theft.
These SecureFit rings are easy to install and the correct tool is supplied in each kit.
Due to the small and compact size of each Sensor, they are not really a target for theft as they look very similar to an ordinary valve cap.

Note: Stolen Sensors cannot be used on any other TYREDOG™ device. Only LEARNABLE Sensors can be programmed.

How do I inflate or deflate the tyres once the Sensors have been fitted?

If the SecureFit rings have been fitted, using the tool supplied, simply loosen the SecureFit Ring then unscrew the sensor. If the SecureFit rings are not fitted then the sensor simply unscrews and you can then inflate or deflate your tyres.

If the optional 3-way valve has been fitted, then you simply remove the valve cap on the 3-way valve and inflate / deflate your tyres as normal. (There is no need to remove the sensor if the 3-way valve is used - These are commonly used on Trucks and Buses)

How do I know if the batteries are going flat?

The TYREDOG™ wireless Tyre Pressure and Monitoring system monitor / receiver will show a battery Icon for both the Monitor and the individual Sensor when it's time to replace the battery.
Once the icon appears, we suggest that you replace the appropriate battery within a few days. This will ensure your tyres are always protected.

What is the maximum transmission range for the sensors?

In perfect conditions. the Transmission range can be around 10 metres. (Some times more, some times less. All depends on the shape, size of the vehicle and the metal structure involved)
If the Sensor / Monitor is surrounded by large amounts of metal structure, the transmission range will be reduced.

To increase the transmission range, the TYREDOG™ TD-2700F-X Series contains a Relay / Repeater Module.
This module is required for Trucks, Buses, Motor Homes, Heavy Duty Vehicles and vehicles with a Trailer or Caravans.
The Relay / Repeater module must be mounted within 10 metres range of the Sensors but can be up to around 30 metres away from the monitor / receiver.
