But, this truly ticks me off for two reasons. One, the tool solves a problem Subaru could have made a built-in feature to the car's software. I could do with a couple fewer chimes if this was a software selection. Second, okay, you need to pay the dealership.....if it was $20-$25 to have the Subaru dealer do it, I could live with it. But, at $150 a whack, this tool will pay for itself in the spring when I put my 3 season wheels back on.

Had new wheels put on today and my TPMS works normal with no problems. It’s a 2019 Outback Limited.

Not sure if Discount Tire did anything or not.

Just a follow-on edit, it worked and worked perfectly the first time. I ever meet you in person GrumpySquatch, the beer is on me.
Likely not a typo but a write-o I noted the software changes on a Post-It next to my computer so I may very well have written them down incorrectly.

So you're saying that after programming you can now see the pressure values on the screen or is that still a problem? I didn't follow the 8-mile drive after snow tires part.

They must have. Sounds like some Discount Tire places have mastered getting the TPMS reprogrammed for their Outback customers. I'm assuming if it was a separate charge you would have seen it on the invoice. Maybe they just factor it into the cost of installing the tires? That's way better treatment than my Subaru dealer was going to offer me. All I did for them was buy a $41000 car........

Works perfectly now.

What bothered me is that I drove for over 8 miles, a lot of it at 40+ mph with unprogrammed sensors and never got a TPMS light on the dash. Once I did the programming, I had pressure values within 2 miles.

That is pretty normal and what I have seen.

Others have reported that the system is capable of relearning positions when tires are rotated and the sensor IDs remain the same, just in different places. So there has to be some kind of timeout window in the code where the system tries to match the IDs in new positions to the list in the ECU but doesn't throw an error. Perhaps 8 miles doesn't exceed that window. I hope that if you go long enough it would appear, but glad we can reprogram the system now and avoid the problem in the first place.

Can the ts508 also reprogram using the stock Subaru sensors on 2018s? I have a set of snows with rims and Oem sensors. Subaru wants an arm and a leg to reprogram and discount tire is a zoo this time of year.
