Q. Are Tire Patrol batteries self-replaceable?
A. No, the batteries are not self-replaceable. In an effort to prolong the life of the sensors, they are permanently sealed to keep out water and prevent corrosion. Tire Patrol batteries should last around one year if you thread them on and never take them off, and up to 3 years if you take them off regularly when not towing.
Q. Since the batteries aren't self-replaceable, what do I do when they die?
A. We have a battery replacement program. You send in your sensors, we put in a new battery, new inner and outer o-rings, update firmware and ship them back. When the time comes, call 800-815-2159.
Q. Do I need to re-balance my tires after I install the Tire Patrol Sensors?
A. No, the lightweight design does not affect the balance of the tires.
Q. Are Tire Patrol sensors compatible with nitrogen-filled tires?
A. Yes, nitrogen and tire pressure monitoring systems are completely compatible. A tire pressure system works exactly the same regardless of whether the tires are filled with air or nitrogen.
