My 2014 Honda CR-V ..

I have an issue with my CR-V and my Doran TPMS system. I have the Doran 360 Rv for 10 wheels. 6 for the MH and 4 for the toad. The valve stems on my CR-V are rubber and are short. I f you are familiar with the Doran senders ( see attached the item on the left is to secure the sensor). Doran Mfg states that they should be on metal valve stems because the of the size of the sensor. The problem becomes the CR-V has its own TPMS system and I would need to replace the OEM with a sensor/metal stem. Honda really doesnt want to get involved. Has anyone had this problem and what was your work around

I don't use TPMS but I can see Honda's point as an OEM. However, have you talked to a good tire shop? They are likely in a better position than Honda.

I am talking with a auto repair center he is resarching the issue as well, off the top he said it could be something like 60 bucks a wheel, that is if they make such a item. To bad there isnt a device to plug into the Honda and transmit the signals from the OEM to my Doran

Good Luck, I ran into this when I bought a set of rims and winter tires. They wanted something in the range your talking about for sensors so I opted for the old fashioned, check my tire pressure regularly. I check my MH and toad every day before takeoff and go around with my Fish Bat at each rest stop. I am anal about tires and brakes but TPMS does not get me excited.

I just looked at my 2013 Honda CRV with Honda TPMS... My valve stems are metal! Are you SURE your Honda TPMS stems are rubber... I've never seen an OEM TPMS that wasn't metal!!

edstep,


I have the same issue. 2014 CRV and rubber stems. My tire guy said I can't put on the sensors either. If you find a solution, I'd be interested in hearing about it.

Well, I kind of have a similar situation, only different.

The tire pressure monitoring system on my 2005 Honda Pilot quit working last year. To date, I haven't found a Honda dealer that wants to fix it.

So, here's what I did. I recently purchased new tires for the toad, so when the tire shop was installing the tires, I had them remove the OEM sensors from the rims. They installed steel (well, OK, brass in this case) tire stems. I put the TPMS sensors on them.

When we unhook the toad, I put the coach TPMS monitor in the toad, and, VOILA!, we have a working tire pressure monitoring system when we're driving around in the toad.

The only downside is the OEM TPMS light is on telling me that the OEM TPMS is not working.

Oh well.

I suppose you could consider doing the same thing, and then re-install the OEM sensors and valve stems when you intend to sell the vehicle.

Jim

Lots of stems at Amazon.


To install a new stem and remove the Honda TPMS unit only requires breaking the bead on the stem side. It does not require removing the tire fully from the wheel or re-balancing. Ought to run about $60 - $75 for all four.

Are you sure the TPMS is in the valve stem? I read someplace that it is in the wheel. We have lived many decades without a TPMS system in our tires and nver had a problem or a flat. I would put on the metal stems, put on the TPMS and jsut move the display to the toad if you feel you need a TPMS in the toad when using it.

I figured I would update this post, if finally got my metal stems. Went to COSTCO and talked to one rep who says they install metal stem for TPMS. He says its done all the time. However when I went back I got another tech and he wasn't aware of anything like that

Hence I waited for the the fellow who I originally spoke with and I am set. It cost me $92 for the stems ( like $8 apiece) and installation etc

Hope this might help someone who is looking at this issue
