This has already been addressed. Although some TPMS sensors need motion to work the system on our cars doesn't.

They seem to simply pulse out at a regular interval, or when a rapid change in pressure occurs.

It's true. I have my stock wheels and tires stored in the garage for the winter, and the tpms in the (non-moving) wheels sends their signal to my car, also parked in the garage, because when I drive the next day, the tpms light on my dash stays off, even though my winters wheels don't have tpms.

Mine do this to. But ~20 miles into my drive the tpms light comes on (which does prove the timed interval theory). Also, when i leave work, the light turns on right away since the stock wheels are 30 miles away. I'm just curious if the pressurized canister with the sensors inside has been tested and proven to work.

Ugh I know right, but you could always just remove the abs chip lol problem solved! XD

Quick question:

http://www.parts.com/parts/2013/SUBA...agramCallOut=2

http://parts.subaru.com/parts/2013/S...agramCallOut=2

There are four parts listed as part of the TPMS system, this is duplicated on Subaru's own parts website. Part 1 I obviously don't need, that's the computer. Part 2 includes Part 4, it's basically the sensor, valve stem, and the cap for the stem, simple enough.

What the hell is Part 3? TPMS Nut? Is this something I need if I'm installing a set of sensors on another set of rims, or is this something I don't need to order?

What exactly is the nut for? Attaching the sensor to the stem?

It's to secure the sensor/stem to the wheel. Take a look at the stock setup, you'll see what appears to be a nut just below the cap on the stem. That's the nut in question.

Just want to confirm what I think I've read here (pretty long thread) - When I switch to winters without TPMS nothing will happen but the warning light correct?

Correct. I've had wheels on the car for 26 of the past 29k miles without the sensors and the car didn't complain, save the warning light.

My snows are on my stock wheels without the TPMS sensors, no side effects beyond the light. My summers are RPF1's with the TPMS sensors in them and as soon as I swapped wheels the light went away (actually, as soon as I put the summers in the trunk the light went away ).
