Has anyone had problems with this gauge? I've had 2 gauges within 4 months that will show a pressure with it not being on a valve stem. I have tried 2 new batteries and still the issue exists.

Anyone else had this problem?

I HAVE ONE THAT IS FIVE YEARS OLD AND HAS WORKED GOOD EXCEPT IT IS CONSISTANTLY 2TENTHS OF A LB LOW. IT WILL DO WHAT YOU ARE DESCRIBING IF I LEAVE IT IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT. I HAVE HEARD OTHERS SAY THAT THEY ARE JUNK AND HAVE A LOT OF PROBLEMS WITH IT.

Mine lasted a little over a month and had the same problems as yours.

A recent pit neighbor had this problem. He borrowed my analog gauge and his digital was reading the same as mine when put on the tire.

After 2 failed gauges in 90 days I gave up, that was 5 years ago. Have been using the same Longacre digital ever since

Had three fail in a little over a year. Got a credit for a full refund and used that to buy a digital Intercomp. That was over 10 years ago and have not looked back!

Thanks for the replies everybody. I've always thought I knew how to take care of a tire gauge. Haha I guess I'll be spending a few extra dollars and getting the intercomp gauge. They seem to be reliable.

I have been using a Snap-on Digital gauge that I bought sometime around 1990. Still works great. I bought an extra gauge from Snap-on in 2005, just to have a spare. Now they are no longer available. Registers to a tenth of a pound. They measure .1 of a pound different.
