tyre pressure monitor - steel mate - tp-70



I am thinking of buying one of the above.

Does anybody already have one and was it ok.

The display plugs into the cigarette lighter.  I have a mk1.  I have read somewhere that the cigarette lighter is not always live.

Does anybody know if this will work with my mk1


Any help appreciated.

Thank you


Hi Mark,
Can’t help with the tyre pressure thing but it’s worth checking the fuse for the cigarette lighter socket. I just discovered mine had blown. It’s in the awkwardly-located fuse box behind where the bonnet release catch is and there’s a diagram on the forum in the technical section.

The cigar lighter on the NA turns off when the ignition is off if that’s what you mean.
