Subaru TPMS Reset Guide

Subaru Outback 2005-2009 TPMS Reset Guide

About this Model:

The fourth generation Legacy formed the basis for a third-generation Outback. The third-generation Outback was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2003, offered with either the 2.5L EJ25 or 3.0L EZ30 engine.

Introduction was delayed in North America until January 2004 for the 2005 model year. A turbocharged 2.5L EJ25 was added to the range in North America. The 2.5XT trim was sold as a limited edition in Japan starting in 2008 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Subaru. Wheelbase and overall length grew for the new generation.

The interior and exterior styling of the entire Legacy series, including the Outback, was updated in mid-2006.[29] The Outback sedan, which had been limited to the North American market, was discontinued after the 2007 model year. At the same time, the Legacy wagon was dropped, leaving Subaru with only the a single sedan (Legacy) and wagon (Outback) for the mid-size car market in North America.

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.
