Default TPMS Reset Location - Baltimore Area

Just bought a used set of 2011 WRX wheels/tires/TPMS from NASIOC. Of course, the TPMS light is on since they are different TPMS than before.

Anyone know of any locations near White Marsh that will reset the TPMS for little or no cost?

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure Agile Automotive can, if not any subaru dealership can.

Do places generally charge for this? or is it a 2 second process?

Not sure what the general consensus is but I stopped by my local Subaru dealership on a slow night and they just took the car back and did it in about 2 minutes. Didn't even bother writing up a work order or anything.

At the shop I work at we charge for it. Even though it can be a quick process, learning new sensors takes a special tool which is pretty expensive.

I had it done at Annapolis Subaru and it cost me $60. Wasn't to happy on the cost, but oh well I guess when the light comes on, I know it was worth it?

No answer to your question, but please post pictures of the wheels on the car... I'm curious to see how the combination looks.

Sure....I think you live like 2 minutes from me. If you want to check them out in person, let me know. I'm home by 6:30 or so most evenings.

No I work in a tire shop, I just think its insane what shops will charge for something that takes under 5 min to complete. But your deff going to be more than 30min from me

do you have the serial #s for the new sensors??? its stamped on the sensor itself, of if you bought them new it might be in the receipt

if you have the #'s for the new sensors just buy this tool $130 and you can do it yourself:

http://www.tpms-tool.com/TPMS-tool-ATEQ-quickset.php

its very simple to use, once you set up the tool with both summer and winter # you can reprogram the tpms with just the touch of a button

I did live up there, but have moved into the city since the Fall.

I will probably be at the BWW meet tonight though. I'm just curious as to how much more flush the wheel is to the body with 8" of width. I've been looking for a set myself, but some people seem to 1) not respond to PM's much, and 2) seem to think their stockers are something precious and want stupid $$$ for them.

P.Rico....haven't forgotten about you. Will try and get pics this week.

Anyone locally have the tool to reset the TPMS? Agile said they can't do it and Bel Air Subaru is going to run ~$60. Seems steep for 15 minutes of work.

meh, thats bogus. We pretty much do it for free. Idk how much harder it can be on a subaru, but on a GM it takes less than 2 minutes.

I have the tool to activate the sensors, I just dont know how to put the car in learn mode. You probably need a scan tool.

thats lame, all mfrs should do it the way GM does. If they car has a remote transmitter you just hold lock and unlock together for about 3 seconds till the horn chirps, then its in learn mode.

Are these "reset scan" machines universal or are they made for a specific company (GM, subaru, honda, etc)?

they make lots of universal ones. I use a "gm specific" tool but thats only bc its sold by a company that retails all of GMs special tools. It works on just about any sensor. I used it on some subaru sensors I had and it picked up the IDs just fine.

I have one of these ($500)




We also have one of these ($60)
