    TPMS light turn it off

    So all the 08+ STi, WRX, Impreza have the TPMS valve stem sensors to warn you with an amber light on the dash. Well most of us have 2 sets of wheels and tires. Our Warm weather tires usually have the TPMS sensors inside, and our winters Usually dont cause we dont care. So here are a few ways to get rid of that amber light ill do easiest to the hardest

    1. Take the dash apart to the instrument panel and remove the bulb for the TPMS logo careful lots of LEDs back there
    2. Take the dash apart to the istrument panel and remove the clear sheild and use a peice of electrical tape over the logo.
    3. The Tacoma Pipe bomb not too sure if it will work
    4. (This is what i did) If you dont have acess to a MODIS by SNAP-ON im sure u can find a shop that has one and they can Permanently DISABLE THE TPMS syetem and its light

    this is great information, your saying the Snap-On MODIS can turn off the entire system?

    I treat that light the same as the check engine light.
    I ignore it!
