I have the TST Sytems on my Interstate. It works great and has given me the ability to avoid the risk of running a tire flat as I did last spring. Before I installed your TPMS I had an inner dual tire go flat for some unknown distance. I checked the tires OK when heading out in the morning and again at a mid-day rest stop where I discovered the flat.
Mine is the 507 model with flow-thru sensors and I have a question. The owners manual says you should get a Sensor Low Battery Indication. I had one sensor stop giving me information so I assumed it was a bad battery since they have been on my van for about a year now. When I opened up the sensor to change the battery I discovered that a bit of water had got inside and caused some corrosion. That old battery was down to 1.5 volts.
Any clue why I didn't get a Sensor Low Battery Indication?
I cleaned it up and installed a new battery and now it is working fine. I also changed all the other sensor batteries and none had any water or corrosion inside. The other cells were all at 3.0 volts. The new batteries were at 3.2 volts. So all is good but I'd like to understand why I didn't get the Sensor Low Battery Indication.
