Connected to the battery shutoff. makes a nice on/off indicator.

I have the EeZTire TPMS and have not lost a signal since I put the repeater in...well worth it.

you can play photohunt with all my mods [emoticon]

Front storage compartment, above the door. I tapped into wires at a light there.
That location is about half way between the sensors and the monitor.

Although new, I also wondered about the batteries....I bought 4 new ones.


I find that when replacing the batteries, the rubber seals break every time. Make sure you have replacements handy.

With the TST system I've found that if you lube up the O-rings with some grease or petroleum jelly there aren't the problems with them breaking. I've had no issues with the O-rings. I've got spares, but haven't needed them.

I'd recommend not using any petroleum product. Not good for some of them. A silicon grease is a better choice unless you know the O-ring is designed for hydrocarbon service.

I just use whatever grease I have handy and it's not been an issue for the last 5 years. Maybe some day...

I've decided that the repeater is going on the back wall of the front basement compartment....and I can run the wires easily to the battery.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Safe travels,
Mike
