Question flashing tire pressure light

Hey guys,

I recently purchased bremmer kraft rims and tires for my car from tire rack. Vehicle is a 2010 Impreza 2.5i hatchback. Paid for the TPMS and to have it installed by tire rack as well. Put the rims on yesterday and everything seemed fine up until I just pulled into my driveway. The tire pressure light started flashing. Could this have anything to do with the heavy amounts of rain we're receiving in New Jersey today?(Lots of hydroplaning). Any help is appreciated

The new TPMS have different codes than your stock ones did. You'll need to have the car reflashed to the new codes to erase the error. I have mine flashed between summer and winter tires annually. Dealer can do it and you might be able to find some other shops that are capable.

The tpms sensor should be able to be cloned to match your stock wheels. When I had mine done, they forgot to clone one sensor causing the light to come on about 45 minutes later. A quick 30 second re flash of the sensor and I was good to go.
Now I can switch my wheels back and forth with out needing to go to dealer etc.

I had mine done at Americas tire.

More than likely that's what it is, malfunctioning sensor.

Once flashed to the car, a blinking light also means overinflated tire iirc.
