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

Yes, the TYREDOG™ wireless Sensors have been designed to be externally 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 supermarkets and leading electronic stores. Alternatively you can purchase them through our website in the Spare Parts Section.

TDA-4C / TD-1XXX series Monitor / Receiver - The Estimated Battery Life depends on the model of your kit and also depends on how often the device is being used. Generally up to 12 Months for standard LCD screen passenger vehicle models. For colour screen model TD-1460, the battery life is around 3 months. If the monitor is left on, it will automatically switch off and go into sleep mode. This helps increase the battery life and the monitor will automatically switch on again once it detects movement. The Monitor / Receiver will contain 2 standard AAA or AA batteries (Depending on the model).

TD-2XXX series Monitor / Receiver - The TD2700F models are required to be powered by the supplied 12V/24V cigarette lighter adapter. The monitors only require batteries for programming purposes if you need to take the monitor out of the vehicle.


The TDA-4C, TD-1XXX and TD-2XXX series all come with a DC adaptor which can also be used the power the Monitor / Receiver. (Note: TDA-4C, TD-1XXX are compatible with 12V DC only where as the TD-2XXX 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.
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.

What should the Low Pressure, High Pressure & High Temperature alarms be set to?

Alarm Thresholds can be set for each axle meaning you can set different values for the front and rear tyres if required.

Low Pressure Alarms we recommend setting this at around 10-15% below your Cold Tyre Pressure.
High Pressure Alarm we recommend setting this at around 20-25% above your Cold Tyre Pressure.
High Temperature Alarm we recommend setting this at 70 Deg C.

Please refer to this Table below for some recommended settings which can be used as a guide for setting your thresholds.

Can I replace a lost or damaged Sensor?

Yes you can order and program replacement LEARNABLE sensors for 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 model, sensor type and the correct Wheel Position must be ordered. Sensor type is determined by removing the battery cover and battery then checking the colour of the label underneath where the battery is normally positioned. 
For Example:  If you require a new Sensor Number 2, then you must order a Sensor Number 2.
Replacement LEARNABLE sensors are available for each tyre location.

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

Why isn't one or 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 may 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.

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

If the SecureFit rings have been fitted, using the allen key 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 only suitable for Trucks and Buses or vehicles which contain a deep dish rim and metal valves.

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?

Transmission range is around 20-30 metres line of sight. However as the sensors transmit via Radio Frequency, the vehicle shape, size of the vehicle and the metal structure reduces this range to 5-10 meters (less than 5m for internal type sensors). Sometimes more, sometimes less. This is why the passenger vehicle models are not suitable for towing applications.

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 5-10 metres range of the Sensors (closer the better) but the Relay/Repeater can be up to around 60-80 metres away from the monitor / receiver.
