Congratulations to your purchase of TIRELIFE, which will be
TIRELIFE a valuable addition to your vehicle for helping you to drive
safer. TIRELIFE automatically monitors your vehicle tires,
and will immediately alert you of abnormal tire pressure
Tire Pressure Monitoring System and/or temperature, thereby providing timely warnings to you
to take corrective actions. In addition, TIRELIFE’s digital
display makes tire pressure maintenance easy, and you no
TPM-KV104 longer need to manually checking tires with a pressure
gauge. Consequently, your tires can easily be kept in an
optimal operating condition. The resulting benefits are
obvious: reduced uneven tire wear, reduced severe tire
User’s Manual damages, reduced air loss related tire failures, increased tire
lives, improved fuel efficiency, improved vehicle braking and
handling. Best of all, TIRELIFE can help you to drive with
enhanced vehicle safety on the road, and with less worry of
flat tires and blowouts.
1 Display Unit (TPM-DU)
4 Sensor-Transmitter (TPM-V1)
3 2-sided adhesive strip (TPM-AS)
TIRELIFE system installation involved two steps: install the
Display inside the vehicle, and install the Sensor on the
wheels. It is recommended to install the Display first for
receiving and displaying the tire pressure and temperature
readings as soon as the Sensors were installed. The Display
can be installed in different locations within the vehicle.
a) Place the Display to a desirable location and secure with
the 2-sided adhesive strip TPM-AS or other user
b) Before fix the Display, clean the surface of the location
carefully. Then stick the Display on.
c) Arrange the power wires, and connect the red wire to +12
or+24 VDC, the copper wire to the switch controllable
+12or+24 VDC, and the black wire to ground.
a) Elevate vehicle to a proper working height.
b) Deflate the tires and remove the valve stems.
c) Match sensor number with the wheel location as showed
below. Twist sensor stem counterclockwise to detach it
from the sensor body.
d) Press the sidewall of the tire to make room, put the
sensor body inside the tire with the threaded portion
coming out through the valve hole, and then put sensor
stem back on the sensor. Make sure the sensor has a air
seal washer on either side of the valve hole. Tighten
sensor with socket. Do not over tighten for it might cause
air leak or damage.
e) Reset tire sidewall and make sure the tire bead does not
cover or damage the sensor. Upon detection of abnormal tire pressure and/or temperature, the
