After installation, no signal was received from the sensor.
Higher radio frequency (RF) transmissions propagate mostly via straight lines and along line-of-sight pathways. PressurePro Sensors are required to accomplish a daunting task – transmitting from vehicle’s tires to the Monitor. If a Sensor fails to give a pressure reading, move the Monitor slightly and wait 5 minutes for new signals to report.
 
After installation, pressure readings drop on display - Actual tire pressure remains.   
The probable cause is poor interaction between the Sensor and dill valve. Try the following procedures separately, in order, until the problem is resolved:
1) Unscrew the Sensor and again, hand-tighten and listen for the release of air to the Sensor. (Be sure the Sensor and valve stem are not cross-threaded.)
2) Make sure the proper dill valve is installed in your valve stem. Replace the dill valve if necessary, as it can be worn or defective.
3) If condition still persists, contact your Distributor/Dealer or PressurePro.
 
Can I delete all sensors at once?   
Yes, holding the PROG button down for 45 seconds will erase all Sensors installed.
 
Can I store my vehicle with the monitor on?   
PressurePro Monitors draw 25mA to 150mA of power. It’s possible the Monitor could drain the vehicle's battery over an extended period of time.   If storing for more than 1 month, it's advised to unplug your Monitor and remove Sensors (see “Tips” section).   Plug in Monitor and replace Sensors before driving again.
 
Can I use a sealant or equalizer powder in the tire with PressurePro?   
It’s recommended to use a filtered Dill Valve if using sealants or equalizing substances. Sealant can plug up the valve core and shut off pressures in stems.
 
Do I need to rebalance my tires when using a sensor?   
The 2/3 oz. Sensors, on large tires (RV/Truck), seldom necessitates a tire be balanced. Smaller tires may require a ½ ounce stick-on balancing weight opposite the Sensor.
 
Does monitor need to be powered by lighter accessory   
No.   Hardwiring is actually a preferred option as it reduces back feed interference.  
 
During installation, no signal was received from the sensor.   
Higher radio frequency (RF) transmissions propagate mostly via straight lines and along line-of-sight pathways. PressurePro Sensors are required to accomplish a daunting task – transmitting from vehicle’s tires to the Monitor. If a Sensor fails to give a pressure reading, move the Monitor slightly and wait 5 minutes for the new signals to report.
 
How do I delete a single sensor?   
With the desired tire location selected (and in Normal Mode) hold your PROG button for approximately 10 seconds. Note: After approximately 5 seconds of holding the PROG button, the green light to the bottom left of your DOWN arrow will turn solid. Continue to hold PROG until the green light and the selected tire location turn off (approximately 5 more seconds). Display will show "dEL" when deletion is complete. 
 
If I unplug or lose power, must I reprogram monitor?   
The Monitor has the capability of offering pressure values in alternate Metric, as well as PSI units. The observation of the erroneous pressure values for all locations can sometimes be the first indication that the Monitor has been placed into an alternate Metric pressure unit. Units can be selected/changed by unplugging the Monitor, then re-powering while simultaneously holding down the “ON” button. The alternate unit abbreviations will briefly show in the Monitor’s read-out window each time you plug in the Monitor. For North American PressurePro users, if the Monitor is not reading out in “PSI”, change the Metric readout per the above procedure, until you observe a “PSI” read-out. Wait 5 minutes for all of the Sensors to send updated readings.
 
Power cord & fuse   
If the green light on Monitor does not come on, make sure the cord is properly plugged into the Monitor. Make sure the red light on the cord is on and the cord is plugged into the lighter receptacle. Check the fuse located in the cigarette lighter end of the cord by unscrewing the black ring (at the silver tip) of the plug. Replace only with a 2 Amp fast-blow fuse.
 
Tire pressures increase while driving. Do I need to do anything?   
No.  While driving, tires become "hot", increasing pressure.  A pressure increase of 10% to 20% is common, especially in hot weather at high speeds. 
 
What do I do about a low sensor battery alert?   
When you receive a low Sensor Battery alert, contact your dealer/distributor. The Sensor should be returned for replacement. The cost of a replacement “Sensor” is less than the cost of a new Sensor. Contact your dealer/distributor or PressurePro for information.
 
What happens when I remove a sensor to inflate a tire?   
After 5 minutes, the Monitor displays 3 dashes (- - -). Removing Sensors for 60 seconds allows a new “BASELINE” reading to be accepted.
 
What is the "Reminder" Alert?   
After an “Alert” has been acknowledged with a button press (or 15 minutes have passed) and the location lights have turned off, the audible alert will periodically “sound” for a short duration to remind you of the alert.
 
What should be done if a low pressure alert is sounded?   
Immediately pull over and check low tire. Physically check tire and repair. Be sure to check valve stem for damage. Soap the entire area to check for any leaks.
 
What should I do if a sensor is lost or damaged?   
Contact your Dealer, Distributor to order a new Sensor.
 
When do my sensors transmit?   
1. Within 60 seconds of screwing Sensor onto the valve stem.
2. Every 5 minutes while updating, under normal conditions.
3. At a 12.5% drop from baseline pressure.
4. At a 25% drop from baseline pressure.
5. At the Upper Pressure alert level.
6. When a Sensor is removed from its valve stem.
 
Why does the monitor display erroneous pressures for all of my tires?   
The Monitor has the capability of offering pressure values in alternate Metric, as well as PSI units. The observation of the erroneous pressure values for all locations can sometimes be the first indication that the Monitor has been placed into an alternate Metric pressure unit. Units can be selected/changed by unplugging the Monitor, then re-powering while simultaneously holding down the “ON” button. The alternate unit abbreviations will briefly show in the Monitor’s read-out window each time you plug in the Monitor. For North American PressurePro users, if the Monitor is not reading out in “PSI”, change the Metric readout per the above procedure, until you observe a “PSI” read-out. Wait 5 minutes for all of the Sensors to send updated readings.
 
Why doesn't my monitor turn on?   
Make sure the lighter receptacle has power. Some vehicles only have power when the vehicle is running. Check that the power cord is plugged in securely to the receptacle on the Monitor. If the cigarette receptacle is always “hot”, be sure all connections are secure. A red LED light on the plug is lit when cord is powered. Check fuse located in the lighter plug-in end of the cord by unscrewing the black ring (at the silver tip) of the plug. Replace only with a 2 Amp fast-blow fuse. Check the vehicle fuse controlling the power source.
 
How reliable is PressurePro for different types of vehicles and conditions?   
PressurePro has been designed and tested to work under all types of conditions. Reliability of the communication signal is the key to PressurePro systems. A strong signal and sensitivity to the communication requires a unique engineering design to capture the signal under all types of conditions including outside electronic interference, weather and other vehicles. As with cell phones, signal interference is always a possibility, but PressurePro has been designed with redundant signals to ensure greater reliability at all times and under all types of conditions.
 
Can I monitor an RV & towed vehicle (or Truck & Trailer) at the same time?   
Yes. PressurePro Systems not only allow reliable and accurate tire pressure monitoring on all types of vehicles and set-ups up to 64 wheel positions, they also provide users with many advanced monitoring options including the ability to monitor primary and tow vehicles together or seperately.

 
How strong is the signal?   
PressurePro will read up to 100 feet under most conditions. Radio signals have restrictions placed by law and PressurePro complies with all regulations and FCC guidelines. The signal from the sensor is strong and specific to the receiver, which is tuned for sensitivity to the sensor signal.
 
For inside duals with inward facing stems can you make it easier?   
PressurePro alleviates part of the problem by monitoring tire pressure constantly, alerting when pressure is low and saving you the trouble of having to reach the inside tires to check pressure. No need to manually check tire pressures - using PressurePro makes tire pressure maintenance quick and easy. Another consideration is to use valve stem extensions that face outward and can be reached from the outside dual area.
