Default How do I reset the TPMS sensors?

2010 Wrx sedan.

I took my stock wheels off and put on some winter wheels.
Winter wheels ALSO have TPMS sensors in them

drove for a day and the light didnt come on, it is now on and will not go off.

Stopped at a friend's shop and used a Tech300 http://www.bartecusa.com/wheelrite_tech300_plus.htm

however, he thinks he reset them but all I think is he read the tpms.

How to I put the car into learn mode to reset these tpms sensors?
And can it be done with this tool?

Thanks

usually needs to be reset at the dealership(I think Tirerack sells a tpms reset tool). I know its kind of a PITA when changing to summers/winter set up having to go to the dealership. they usually charge me $18.

The sensors on Subaru's have to be flashed into the TPMS module. If your friend had a Tech400Plus, he'd be able to do it. The Tech300 will only query the sensors, the Tech400Plus will do this as well as plug into your Datalink and reprogram the TPMS module.

As of current, only the Tech400Plus and that Ateq Quickest will flash Subaru's. Snap-On, OTC, etc.... do not even support Subaru's or Suzuki's TPMS.

well craptastic, my other thought was to grab the OTC Genesis and see what I could do with that in conjuction with the tech300..

looks like Im gonna have to get a quickset or go to the dealer and see if they'll do it. ( they'll probably want me to drop the car off for a day or make me wait hours to do the reset..)

also, I cant seem to find the ATEQ quickset for sale anywhere on the net, including tirerack for some reason

Well, looks like your right. Might be a sign of the quality of them things.

From the Snap-On perspective, their current 10.4 diagnostic software package does not support TPMS on Subaru nor Suzuki. My rep. can't explain either (knows little about TPMS anyways). I've emailed OTC as well and they couldn't give me a time frame when it would be available either.
