tire pressure system
« on: March 28, 2015, 04:58:39 pm »
tire pressure system came on today and said battery low on front tire.
went the dealer and was told you must buy a new monitor, not just replace the battery.
any one here shed any light on this problem. DON'T WANT TO SPEND 150.00. JUST FOR A BATTERY!!!!!!
NEED NEW TIRE SOON.

THANKS

The battery is integral to the Tyre Pressure sensor,
so the Dealer is right - you have to replace the complete sensor !

How old is your Trophy though ? - Many Members here have had these Sensors replaced
free of charge by Triumph while the 2 year warranty was still in force,
as the batteries should last longer than that ( although I don't know HOW long they should last ).

Owners Handbook :
When the battery voltage in a pressure sensor is low,
TPMS - BATTERY LOW FRONT/REAR TYRE will be displayed for eight seconds.
If the batteries are completely flat, only dashes will be visible in the display screen,
the red TPMS warning light will be on and the TPMS symbol will flash continuously.
Contact your authorised Triumph dealer to have the sensor replaced and the new
serial number recorded in the spaces provided on page 51 ( of the Owners Handbook )

I may have to try to get my old one back when my front is replaced and see if this can be done on ours.  Good idea.  Thanks for locating that. :028:

FWIW, they  seem to be accurate for a very long time with the "low battery" message. And it seems the message comes on a lot more when it's cold outside.

I have had the low battery message on both tires. The front  tire before the 500 mile service. The rear tire is coming on now, but it's about time for me to change both tires and the bike is still in warranty.

IMO, the low battery tire alarm comes on at too high of a battery voltage. IOW, comes on too soon, as it will still  be accurate for perhaps months--if not years, before any real problems with the PSI indication.

BTW, has anybody in this forum has the PSI indication not be accurate because of a weak tire sensor battery?

Interesting You-tube vids cropbiker...

I'd like to see a photo of one of the Triumph TPMS sensors if there's one available....and if anybody knows which battery to use then that all seems very possible.

Nice to see the good old Watchmakers Chisel in use again.... the hours I've spent doing almost the same things as seen in the Vids using just such a tool...all in the line of duty, naturally. Though I would make better, more mechanically secure joints. I'd also clean the Solder Joints before and after soldering to avoid "Dry Joints" and any contamination/corrosion affecting the integrity of the solder joints after encapsulation....

Interesting I would love to try but not had one go wrong yet. 

All I would say is do not hold the battery between your fingers across poles as you will shorten the life of the battery.  We use special plastic tweezers to install.  I know that is for smaller batteries but it still holds.
