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.

Does liquid or sealant inside of the tire have an affect on the TPMS sensor?

  • Doran’s new released OTR sensor has built-in filters (patent pending) that can protect sensor chips from being damaged by the liquid or sealant.

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.

What causes the monitor to display alarms?

  • There are multiple reasons for an alarm to be triggered on a Doran tire pressure monitoring system:
  • Air pressure has dropped 12.5% of your baseline tire pressure. This alert will continuously transmit once per second until low pressure is corrected or a button is pressed to place Monitor in Quiet Mode.
  • Air pressure has dropped to the second alert level, 25% below the programmed baseline tire pressure.
  • A rapid loss of air pressure (4.5psi in under 16 seconds) has occurred and the Fast Leak! alarm is triggered.
  • The optional High Pressure Alarm is activated, and tire pressure is 25% above the programmed baseline pressure.
  • The tire pressure sensor has captured a temperature reading of 175deg F (80deg C)
  • The Doran monitor has not received a transmission from a programmed tire pressure sensor for over 60 minutes.
