Default TPMS problem help needed

I have an 08 OBS and while I was driving today the tpms light started blinking and then stayed on. The car wasn't pulling to one side or anything(Tire going flat) so I kept driving. When I got home I check the tire pressures and they were all at spec. I added alittle air to each tire and the light still remains on. Im stumped. Bad sensor? If so would it be cover under warranty?
Thanks, WG

Did Subaru put a TPMS in the spare? If so that could be your issue.

I had the same issue before I changed my rims and had to take it in to the dealer to get them to reset it. They said that one of my sensors went bad and I only had 5k miles on the car.

Spares pressure was good( I thought the same thing) and the light went out earlier today. I probably drove 100 miles from the time it went on till the time it went out. Im begining to not like TPMS system.
