THE NEW MODEL TM4 for vehicles & boats
Similar to the TM2 only with a modern LCD
screen with back light and even more features & options. Including a 2 x sensor
version with customized wording
here for details
The TM2 is
the best all round hot
engine temperature & low coolant alarm on the market.
It can quickly detect ALL causes of
engine overheating, including coolant
leaks, sticky engine thermostats, engine water pump leaks, coolant blockages, radiator
blockages, faulty radiator caps & even heat build-up from engine oil problems. Because it is
so accurate, it can even detect if your engine cooling system is becoming inefficient.
your exact engine temperature and alarms with a WARNING
LIGHT & LOUD BUZZER if your
engine overheats for any reason.
Watchdog TM2 is the No.1
selling Engine Protection Alarm for good reason -
uses the most reliable monitoring method
The TM2s electronic East
Fit heat sensor simply fits like a washer under any suitable bolt that is near the heat
source. Here it monitors the engines metal temperature right where major engine damage occurs. By directly
monitoring the engine cylinder head and engine block temperature, ALL engine
overheating causes are instantly detected. This includes problems
low water alarm sensors can not detect such as blockages and circulation problems.
The TM2's electronic
sensor also overcomes the problem conventional engine temp gauges have of becoming
inaccurate once their sensor looses contact with coolant. With a TM2 you will always
know your true engine temperature range in any situation.
This method of heat
detection is highly reliable because heat transfers rapidly and evenly from the inside of
the motor to the outside (air cooled engines rely on this principle). You
will be amazed at the speed the TM2 works, for the first time you see your motor
temperature rapidly rising and falling moment to moment as you drive under varying loads
and traffic conditions.
can program the TM2s alarm sensitivity to suit your engine
The TM2s audible
temperature alarm can be set anywhere from
1 to 125 degrees Celsius by using the Set Alarm button on the front panel (model TM2F is set from 34
to 255 degrees F in two degree increments). This means to install a
TM2 you dont even need to know your engines temperature range. You simply
watch the TM2 and note the highest temperature your engine reaches during normal driving.
Then you set the audible warning alarm
to go off at a slightly higher temperature, it's no harder than setting an alarm
clock and will alert you before your dash temperature gauge has even moved.
TM2 is very easy to fit
TM2s require only a
few minutes to install and can be fitted by any home handyman. The main unit fits under
the dash where the display can be observed and the internal alarm can be heard by the
size - 80 x 30 x 60 mm, plus mounting tabs). The Easy
Fit temperature sensor fits
like a washer under any convenient bolt on the engine that is close to the heat source,
examples are under thermostat housing bolts, tappet cover bolts or similar. Power is supplied by
plugging the unit into the vehicles cigarette lighter socket, or it can be hard wired. TM2
suits 12 or 24 volt systems and is fully reverse polarity protected
TM2s sensor cannot cause engine coolant system leaks or void the engines
The TM2 is perfectly safe
to fit because it does not require you to break into the vehicles cooling system in
any way. It cannot be the cause of coolant leaks in the future and because you are not
interfering with the engines internal workings in any way, the TM2 will not void the
warranty on new or reconditioned engines.
- The TM2
can detect engine cooling system inefficiencies
As cooling systems age
they often become less efficient and the highest normal operating temperature starts to
creep up. Because most conventional dash gauges have a 'flat spot' around the
normal mark, these small increases are not detectable. It is only when the engine is
suddenly worked hard, such as when towing, that cooling system problems become
evident. Only a TM2 has the sensitivity and accuracy required to detect
these slow temperature
increases and alert you to potential engine overheating problems.
- TM2 also
has an option to turn your existing engine oil pressure warning light, into an
Audible Warning Light
TM2 comes standard with an
optional wire that can be simply tagged to the engines existing oil light
switch. If you see the dashboard oil light on, you will also hear the TM2s internal
buzzer. (Not for oil gauges)

THE 'EASY FIT' HEAT
SENSOR - THE NEXT GENERATION IN ENGINE TEMP PROTECTION
engines using either a Air or Water Cooling system
All Engine Watchdog
models use the advanced electronic 'Easy fit' heat sensor. It fits to any auto engine in
seconds and is guaranteed to detect car temperature problems early than you ever thought
Unlike a conventional
engine coolant temp sensor that is insulated off the block and become inaccurate
once coolant is lost The TM2 sensor remains accurate right down to the last
degree and right across the whole engine temperature range.
By accurately monitoring
the engines metal temperature right where major damage occurs, all engine overheating
causes are instantly detected.
Fitting a TM2 takes a few minutes
and 3 simple steps
1. To fit a TM2 all you have to
do is either mount the unit under the dash where it can be observed. Or because it has an
audible alarm you can even hide it in one of those empty dash compartments. (Compact size - 80 x 30 x 60 mm, plus mounting
2. Secondly, run the electronic Easy Fit sensor wire to the engine and
place the sensor under any convenient bolt near the heat source. To monitor the cylinder
heads and engine coolant temperature, a thermostat bolt is ideal. If monitoring the engine
block temperature, mount the sensor under a tappet cover bolt or similar.
3. Push the power plug into your
cigarette lighter, or cut the plug off and hard wire it via the ignition switch. It suits
12 or 24v systems and is fully reverse polarity protected (you wont blow it up).
Mounting the 'EASY FIT' ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE
Mount the sensor in
a convenient location where it will reflect the engine temperature correctly, or as near
the heat source as possible. In this example we are monitoring the engine block
temperature, so a tappet cover bolt has been chosen. To use the sensor as an engine coolant temperature sensor and engine block
monitor, mount the sensor under a thermostat housing bolt or similar.
The SENSOR HOLE size is 10mm (
Slip the heat sensor under the bolt and replace the bolt to its original
position and tension.
IT'S THAT EASY! No possibility
of car coolant leaks or electrolysis.
Secure the lead so there is no
possibility it will be damaged, use the spiral wrap provided if required. If possible,
avoid running the sensor lead right next to sparkplug leads, the coil or distributor.
Plus: TM2 can be
used to switch things on.
The 12 v output for the mini
siren can be used to operate an inexpensive 12v automotive horn relay.
This can be used to turn on
flashing lights or alarms.
NOTE. The leads for the siren
are not fitted as standard. This option is free, but you must request them when ordering.
