TPMS question
« on: January 02, 2014, 07:41:09 PM »
Hello everyone!

I'll be buying a Trophy soon, but I wanted to know your experience with the Tire Pressure Monitoring System.  I have had two cars that have had TPMS now and the tires on those cars seemed to lose air faster than any other car I have owned without TPMS.  Have any of you experienced this or any other problems with the TPMS on the Trophy?  Thanks.

I've owned the Trophy for more than 9 months and never experienced any problem with the TPMS

Not owned for as long but no problems here.  I have had air leaks using the 'external' green red screw on caps.  They were expensive ones but all failed on me and let the tyres down.

No problems other than premature battery deaths, I didn't like keeping my PSI > 42 in order to stop the TPM from telling me I had low Rear Tyre Pressure so I asked my TTSE wrench to unplug the CPU from the TPMs and I just monitor my pressures the old fashioned way....I keep rear at 40 and front at 38 and I'm happy as a clam. No squiggles when playing boy racer and smoother ride over bumps etc. while just cruising.... -Dr Ron

As with the others no problems but I'd also like to add that I have 4 cars with TPMS and have never experienced unusual air loss.

My TMPS warning light came on for the rear tire while it was showing 42 lbs., which was an accurate reading. I bumped it up to 46 or so for a period of time, then back down to 42, and no further problems.  Just a one-time issue!

I didn't have any problems as far as losing air...put we ripped of the front monitor while changing tires...this leads to a red light on the dash. The rear monitor says it has a low battery after only 7 months...this displaces my radio display. Turning the whole thing off sounds good to me.
