Lemon law is 3 trips to the dealer to fix the same problem in most states...Joined to see if others are having same problem with TPSM System as I am. Had car 3 months and dealer can’t fix issue. Regretting my purchase. Never had this problem with Honda or Toyota.
His first post, and he is not a happy camper. I've done stuff like that when I'm perturbed. Best practice is to type up the post, then go away and do something else for a little bit. When you return and re-read it, I bet most would improve it with further edits.Geez, same problem as what?
I read on the Outback forum that the TPMS system re-learns the positions. Is that either not true, or not true on the 2019 Forester? In other words, does one need something like the Autel TS508 to do a rotation?@stilup Check page 331 of your owner’s manual (2019 Forester Owner’s Manual).
The wheel sending units have to be registered to the vehicle TPMS Receiver. Rotating tires doesn’t cause the TPMS light to illuminate. Changing wheels does, unless you migrate the existing sensors to the replacement wheels. Amazon sells a tool for around $50 that supposedly allows you to reprogram the TPMS Receiver.
Note: vehicles with individual wheel pressures displayed DO require reprogramming after wheel rotation, IF you wish for the correct tire pressure to display in the correct wheel location.
Interesting... I know my 2014 BMW 2-Series relearns the correct wheel positions once the tires are rotated. I can actually verify that from my past experiences. Obviously, the receivers for the individual TPMS wheel sensors are located at each vehicle corner, so the vehicle “knows” the individual wheel transmitter location.My 2017 Impreza seemed to relearn positions when I rotated the tires. No one seems quite sure how it does this! (So if anyone out there does know the real answer, please share!)
