Frequently Asked Questions

Can I store my vehicle long term with the monitor on?

The monitor draws 60mA to 125 mA of power when it is under power and fully functional. The monitor could drain vehicle's battery over an extended period of time. Hooking the monitor up to enable the patented  "sleep mode" will drastically reduce the power consumption over a long period. If storing for over 3 months, you might consider unplugging the monitor and removing the sensors for storage. (TIP: Clean egg cartons or plastic bags work well for storing the sensors.) Each sensor has its own serial number laser etched into the cover. Be sure to record the sensor ID numbers so the sensors can be replaced on the same tire location when re-installing them, eliminating the need for reprogramming. If a low-pressure alert is given while in storage, the sensor will alert until the pressure is corrected and could dramatically affect the battery life of the sensors. Sensor will shut down and stop transmitting when less than 5 lbs of air pressure are present. When putting system back on, power the monitor first, and then screw the sensors onto their original wheel locations. Pressure readings will display within a few minutes on the monitor. Your Doran 360™ tire pressure monitoring system will now be active.

Do I have to install the remote LED warning light for the system to operate properly?

No. The Doran 360M™ motorcycle tire pressure monitoring system is adaptable to your needs. The LED warning light is an optional method of warning the driver of an alert. The user can hide the monitor and still be notified by the red LED light. It can be used together with the monitor for additional visual warnings for the driver.

Do I have to install the sensors on the inside of my wheels?

No. You can install the sensors on the exterior of the factory valve stem. Be sure to test that the sensors will clear all of the components around the wheel before riding the motorcycle. A lot of people start out with the sensors on the outside of the wheels and then when they purchase new tires they have the sensors installed on the inside of the wheels. It is your choice.

Do I need to re-balance my tires when using a sensor?

Placing the Doran 360™ tire pressure monitoring systems' 0.83-ounce sensor on a typical large vehicle will not normally necessitate re-balancing tires. Placing the Doran 360M™ 0.67-ounce sensor on a typical motorcycle will not normally necessitate re-balancing tires.

Does the monitor need to be "on" at all times to receive signals from the tire pressure sensors?

Doran monitors are patented with a "sleep mode" so that data transmissions from tire pressure sensors are received while the ignition is keyed off.  Active tire pressures and alarm conditions are immediately visible on the Doran monitor/display when the ignition is keyed on.

How big is the monitor for the Doran 360™ tire pressure monitoring system?

Our new 360RV monitor is more compact than our previous product and is 30% smaller than other competitive models. The size is similar to a standard chalkboard eraser or dollar bill.  The dimensions are width (5.75") x height (2.25") x depth (1.00"). 

For the Doran 360M™, the size is similar to a jeweler's ring box. The dimensions are width (1.75") x height (2.00") x depth (1.375").

How has the system been tested?

In addition to our internal quality tests, the Doran 360™ Tire Pressure Monitoring System has been approved by the FCC and tested to SAE standards for temperature, vibration and chemical/water resistance at an independent a2La accredited testing facility.

How many tires can I monitor with Doran 360™ Tire Pressure Monitoring System?

The Doran 360M™ TPMS ™ monitors up to four tire positions. 

The Doran 360RV™ TPMS monitors up to 36 wheel positions.

I have too much wire left over after I have routed my LED warning light to where I wanted it. Can I cut the wire and re-attach the ends?

Yes. The wire has a tracer on one side so you can be sure to re-attach the wires properly. We suggest that you solder the wires back together when you have figured the proper length that you need and use shrink-tube to re-seal the wire from the moisture and the elements that you may encounter on the road.

I just installed my system. Why is the monitor still showing NSP?

Make sure to leave the sensors off of the valve stem until the system is fully programmed. Once you have all of the sensor codes programmed into the correct locations, exit out of program mode and then screw on the sensors. The sensors won't signal the monitor otherwise.

If that doesn't work, make sure the valve stems are releasing air properly. You should hear a hiss of air when screwing on the sensors. If you don't hear it, your valve stem needs to be fixed or replaced in order for the sensor to be able to properly read air pressure.

If I purchase a new vehicle, can my tire pressure monitoring system easily transfer?

Yes it can. You can move the monitor to a new vehicle and reprogram the Doran 360™ Tire Pressure Monitoring System to the new tires and you are on your way.

Is the system powered by 12v or 24V power?

The Doran 360M only works with 12VDC but all other Doran systems work in both 12VDC and 24VDC voltage.

What does NSP mean?

NSP= No Sensors Programmed

You'll seee this until the system is programmed with the sensor codes and the monitor has received a signal from the sensors.

What happens when I remove the sensors to inflate or check the pressure in my tires?

It is recommended that tire pressures be checked regularly using a high-quality pressure gauge when the tires are at ambient temperatures, in addition to the use of a tire pressure monitoring system. Remove the sensor, check pressure, and inflate if necessary. When you return the sensor to the valve stem, the sensor will begin to read the current pressure and return to its normal operation.

What should be done if a low pressure alarm is activated?

Immediately pull over and check low tire. Physically check the tire and repair, if necessary. Be sure to check valve stem for damage. Soap the valve stem to identify any leaks.

When riding my motorcycle I occasionally see the 3 dashes (---) appear. Do I have a problem with my system?

No. The signal that is transmitted is a RF signal and is much like a cell-phone signal. The FCC requires us to allow all other RF signals to interfere with our signals and this can cause the motorcycle tire pressure monitoring system to occasionally miss a transmission from the sensors. If this persists then you could have a damaged sensor or the batteries could be weak.

Why is it that when I start my motorcycle I get dash lines in the monitor for a while and then the pressures show up?

You have wired your motorcycle tire pressure monitoring system to a switched 12-volt power supply and the monitor comes on with the motorcycle. When this happens the monitor will have to receive a new reading from the sensors in order to display the proper information. The sensors only send a signal every six (6) minutes. Thus, it will depend on when the last radio frequency ("RF") signal was sent compared to when the power was turned on as to how long it will take to have a new reading. It should not take more than six (6) minutes to receive the proper update.

Will the monitor display each tire's pressure or will it simply indicate a low pressure warning?

The Doran 360™ tire pressure monitoring system was designed with a "Green Means Good™" indicator light, which lets the driver know all of the tire pressures are within the specified range. The operator can see each tire's pressure by using the four-way navigational buttons. In addition, there are multiple alarm types that are built-in to the system to make the driver aware of any tire pressure issues.
