Re: Smart Tire Battery Change

Whos monitoring system is fitted ?

"IF" a Smartire receiver ? display is bike powered having nothing to do with the sensors within tires interior. No battery within it, only sending units in tires which are BOMN sealed units anyways.

Honestly if your monitor display is getting dim, check it's power connections or just take it apart checking battery if ones present and if good likely the LED display is just failing.
