Manual - Internal Tyre Pressure Monitoring Sensor TPMS

Manual - Internal Tyre Pressure Monitoring System TPMS

Each Tyre Pressure Monitoring System sensor has a unique ID code. Please use the First Digit of each code to identify 1,2,3 and 4. Please make sure the sensor is installed in corresponding tire. The arrangements can be changed in the nGauge 4x4 App afterwards if incorrectly installed.

Installation Diagram:

 

TPMS Fitment

  1. Remove tyre, valve cap and valve. Ensure Tyre is cleaned out.
  2. Install Internal TPMS unit. There is a small hole at the back of the valve where a thin object can be inserted to lock the valve in place, preventing it from rotating while tightening. Do not overtighten the valve, 4.0 Nm / 35 in-lbs torque should be used. Position the sensor against the rim and ensure allen key is tightened securely.
  3. Inflate tyre to desired pressure
  4. Put valve cap back on
  5. Test balancing
  6. Adjust balance

The nGauge 4x4 Internal TPMS sensors should be installed at a reputable tyre fitment specialist (please provide them with the instructions). After replacing the stock valve with the pressure sensor and reinflating the tyre to the target pressure, the wheel should be re-balanced. To optimise battery use, the sensors only sends readings when the value changes. If no readings are detected, try driving the vehicle a short distance. As the temperature changes, the sensor should start transmitting data.

Ensure tyre is cleaned out thoroughly before installation. Ensure sensor is placed against the rim and allen key is tightened properly. Warranty voided for incorrect fitment, or any signs of tyre sealant, bead fluid, moisture damage to barcode or dirt inside the pressure hole. Please ensure compressor used to top up the air has a water drain. By adding this item/s to your shopping cart and ordering you accept these terms.

 

View Tyre Pressure and Tyre Temperature simultaneously

If you would like to view pressure and temperature simultaneously, scan the QR code a second time. This will create duplicates icons. One by one, click on each icon, then go top right menu to "Edit Device", go to "Enable/Disable" sensors, and select only "Temperature", press ok and exit. Repeat for all duplicates. You will now have a duplicate set showing only the Temperature of the tyres.

 

Warranty Claim - Please note photo below

TOP: New Sensor. Barcode brand new in black and white.

MIDDLE: Aged sensor. Barcode has faded because of heat exposure over the years. No signs of wrinkling or peeling of the barcode. Barcode still clearly readable.

BOTTOM: Sensor exposed to liquid/moisture. Barcode will be faint or not visible at all. Barcode sticker wrinkled up. Normally occurs when: liquid or moisture is introduced during fitment (incorrect installation, incorrect use of bead lube), using faulty compressors or compressors without water trap and filling the tyre with water, or when using tyre sealant. Moisture can also enter the rim when driving at low pressures on the beach. Please take care as warranty will be voided if the barcode does not look like the sensor in the middle or top when doing a warranty claim.
