I was able to do this on my last car(VW via VAGCOM) ,
Can TMPS be turned off ?
Do I need a special tool ? or can I just buy a ODBII scanner
tool off amazon ?

TPMS is required by federal law. I would reckon Subaru programmers engineered anti-hacking software into the tpms system.
All car mfg's get real upset when you try to mess with safety systems.

I doubt that there is a fuse just for the TPMS. I would guess that it is incorporated into one of the many ECU's in the car. Like reddoak stated, sometimes the easiest fix is the cheapest, a piece of tape over the idiot light.

I guess if I want different rims I either have to get a
full set of everything with TMPS included from tirerack ,
or just the rims n have the tires/tmps moved over ... :28:

If only its easy like vagcom.
Is there special software / cables for Subarus ?

As noted SPAMBOT
FYI there are spambots on this board, they seem to re-post the second complete sentence of a previous comment. Not sure how that helps anyone spamwise...
Just report it. The mods do a good job of editing them out.

I think it's the X X X X underneath (in the sig file area) that is supposed to be a clickable ad, is what they are trying to do here.
