TPMS B9 Tribeca 2006

About this Model:

The B9 Tribeca featured a triangular grille and a rounded body shape. Subaru also used the grille styling on the Impreza, and the Japanese market Subaru R1 and R2 kei car products. As this styling motif proved controversial,all future Subaru redesigns abandoned this design language.

The grille design and aviation theme was initially conceived and applied to the earlier B11S and B9 Scrambler concept vehicles by Fuore Design, an independent design consulting firm based in Spain. The grille design was reportedly “meant to convey parent-company Fuji Heavy Industries’ glorious history in aviation”. While the exterior design was largely complete prior to the arrival of Subaru designer Andreas Zapatinas, Zapatinas and his team were responsible for the design of the interior, and the dashboard in particular.

The Tribeca was initially powered by the 3.0-liter EZ30 boxer engine paired with a five-speed automatic transmission.

The Tribeca was slightly reworked in 2006 for the 2007 model year. The updated model, first shown at the Chicago Auto Show, included a revised grille, struts, stabilizer bars, and spring rates. Inside, XM Satellite Radio and iPod connectors were provided. A backup camera and parking assist system were optional for the navigation system. A “Special Edition” package included a mesh grille, XM radio, and unique wheels.

REGISTER TRANSMITTER ID

  • Transmitter replaced
  • Switched the position of the transmitter (rotated tires)
  • Replaced the tire pressure monitoring control module.

NOTE:

  • If registration of the transmitter ID is not possible after 2 attempts, replace the tire pressure monitoring control module.
  • If the ignition switch and Subaru Select Monitor power are turned OFF while registering the transmitter, or if registration is not possible for more that 5 minutes, the registration mode is cancelled.
  • When rotating tires, there is no affect on the performance or functions of the tire pressure monitoring control module even if the transmitter (ID) is not registered, however, the tire position displayed on the Subaru Select Monitor will be incorrect.
  1. Adjust all tire pressures to the specifications.

NOTE: Refer to the tire caution label on the driver’s side door for the correct tire pressure.

  1. Connect the Subaru Select Monitor, on the <<Main Menu>> display screen, select the {2. Each System Check} and press the [YES] key.
  2. On the <<System Selection Menu>> display screen select the {Tire Pressure Monitor} and press the [YES] key.
  3. Press the [YES] key after the {Tire Pressure Monitor} is displayed.
  4. On the <<Tire Pressure Monitor Diagnosis>> display screen, select the {Transmitter ID regist confirm} and press the [YES] key.
  5. {When ID registration mode execute, Registered ID is deleted Proceed?} is displayed then press the [YES] key.
  6. Touch the transmitter registration tool to the side wall area near the air valve on the front left tire, and press the switch. The transmitter ID is sent to the tire pressure monitoring control module. (At that time, the tire pressure warning light blinks to confirm that the registration has started.)

NOTE:

    • Register the transmitter ID in the order of Left Front –> Right Front –> Right Rear –> Left Rear.
    • The transmitter registration tool is used by touching the side wall area near the transmitter.
    • When registration of each tire is completed, the hazard light will blink and {ID registration completed} is displayed on the Select Monitor screen.
    • If registration procedure stop in the halfway (turning ignition switch to OFF, wrong registration order, etc, proceed from step 5)
  1. When ID registration is completed, the tire pressure warning light remains lit for approximately 2 seconds, to end the registration. Switch to the screen displaying the transmitter ID on the Subaru Select Monitor display.
  2. Check the transmitter ID that was registered, then perform a driving test.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS – if equipped)

The tire pressure monitoring system provides the driver with a warning message indicating by sending a signal from a sensor that is installed in each wheel when tire pressure is severely low. The tire pressure monitoring system will activate only when the vehicle is driven. Also, this system may not react immediately to a sudden drop in tire pressure (for example, a blowout caused by running over a sharp object).

If you adjust the tire pressures in a warm garage and will then drive the vehicle in cold outside air, the resulting drop in tire pressures may cause the low tire pressure warning light to come on. To avoid this problem when adjusting the tire pressures in a warm garage, inflate the tires to pressures higher than those shown on the tire placard. Specifically, inflate them by an extra 1 psi (6.9 kPa, for every difference of 10° F (5.6° C) between the temperature in the garage and the temperature outside. By way of example the following table shows the required tire pressures that correspond to various outside temperatures when the temperature in the garage is 60° F (15.6° C).Subaru Standard air pressure

 

If the low tire pressure warning light comes on when you drive the vehicle in cold outside air after adjusting the tire pressures in a warm garage, re-adjust the tire pressures using the method described above. Then, increase the vehicle speed to at least 20 mph (32 km/h) and check to see that the low tire pressure warning light goes off a few minutes later. If the low tire pressure warning light does not go off, the tire pressure monitoring system may not be functioning normally.

REGISTER TRANSMITTER ID

Perform the procedures below to register the transmitter if.

  • Transmitter replaced.
  • Switched the position of the transmitter (rotated tires).
  • Replaced the tire pressure monitoring control module.

NOTE: If registration of the transmitter ID is not possible after 2 attempts, replace the tire pressure monitoring control module.

If the ignition switch is turned to OFF or the Subaru Select Monitor is shut down while registering the transmitter, or if registration is not possible for more than 5 minutes, the registration mode is canceled.

When rotating tires, there is no effect on the performance or functions of the tire pressure monitoring control module even if the transmitter (ID) is not registered, however, the tire position displayed on the Subaru Select Monitor will be incorrect.

  1. Adjust all tire pressures to the specifications.

NOTE: Refer to the tire caution label on the driver’s side door for the correct tire pressure.

  1. Connect the Subaru Select Monitor, on the Main Menu display screen, select the {2. Each System Check}.
  2. On the System Selection Menu display screen, select the {Tire Pressure Monitor}.
  3. Select the [OK] after the {Tire Pressure Monitor} is displayed.
  4. On the «Tire Pressure Monitor Diagnosis» display screen, select the {Transmitter ID regist confirm}.
  5. When ID registration mode execute, Registered ID is deleted Proceed? is displayed then select the [OK].ID registration mode
