Engine Watchdog prides itself on market innovation so the new model TM1 Engine Temperature Alarm has many features not seen in previous models.  New features include:

  • A modern back-lit LCD display that is very easy to read in bright sunlight or at night. The back lighting is neutral white so it blends in with both old and new dashboards alike.
  • The unit displays 10 different information and warning messages so you will always know exactly what's going on.
  • To make setting the alarm temperature easier the new TM1 records the highest temperature the engine reached, giving you an accurate indication of normal operating temperature.
  • The temperature in the alarm memory briefly displays each time you start up so you know if it has been altered.
  • If using the optional OIL ALARM feature the buzzer is inhibited for 10 seconds to give you time to start the engine without it alarming. NOTE. If you do not use the oil alarm feature the delay period and "DELAY ON" message will be bypassed.
  • Water resistant front as standard.

Note: This unit also comes in a Twin sensor version for engine & transmission protection. Search Engine Watchdog TM4 Twin Sensor Vehicle

Technical Information


The Engine Watchdog TM1 is used by professional racing teams for good reason –

  • TM1 uses the most reliable monitoring method
    All engines radiate heat to their outer casing at a constant rate (air cooled engines depend on it).The TM1's electronic 'Easy Fit' heat sensor simply fits like a washer under any suitable bolt that is close to the cylinder head or engine block. Here it accurately monitors the engine's metal temperature and if overheating is detected for any reason, the TM1 alarms with an alarm light, loud buzzer and 'Engine Hot' message.
  • The TM1 tells you exactly what's going on under the bonnet
    Many factory fit gauges indicate normal after you drive just a few kilometres and then do not alter on even the hottest days. Obviously the engine temperature is constantly altering as you drive in varying traffic and road conditions, yet the gauge is not responding. This is because they have a 'flat spot' around the normal mark and will not move until something is very wrong, often once it is too late. The TM1 has the sensitivity required to display every temperature change as it occurs and in an emergency will alert you before your existing dash gauge has even moved.
  • TM1 comes standard with the option to turn your existing dashboard oil light, into an 'Audible Warning Light'
    If this optional wire is tagged to the engine's Oil Light Sender new messages will display on the screen. The new messages are: 'Engine Delay', this gives you time to start the engine before the audible oil alarm activates. 'Low Oil', this message and the alarm buzzer will activate instantly if low oil pressure is detected while you are driving. (Not suitable for oil gauge sensors. If you want this feature and only have an oil gauge, you will need to fit an inexpensive car type Oil Light Sender).
  • You can program theTM1's alarm sensitivity to suit your engine
    With a TM1 you don't even need to know your engine's temperature specifications to set the overheating alarm. You simply note the highest temperature your engine reaches during normal driving or interrogate the TM1  memory and then set the audible alarm to go off at a few degrees higher by pressing the button on the front. You get to set the alarm sensitivity and it's no harder than setting an alarm clock.If the alarm goes off while the engine is working hard, you can simply press the front button to stop the alarm, or give it another press to increase the alarm temperature.
  • The TM1 is very easy to fit
    TM1's can be fitted by any home handyman. The main unit fits under the dash (Compact size - 80 x 30 x 60mm, plus mounting tabs). The 'Easy Fit' temperature sensor takes a few seconds to bolt to the engine. The power just plugs into the cigarette lighter socket or it can be hard wired to your vehicle's electrical system. TM1 suits 12 or 24 volt systems.

  • The TM1's sensor cannot cause coolant leaks or void the engine's warranty
    The TM1 is perfectly safe to fit because it does not require you to break into the cooling system in any way.
