Check engine light with TPMS

Post by sthompson » Wed Apr 18, 2018 6:17 pm

I have a customer with a 2013 Subaru Forester that we installed a Kenwood DNX893S with the Maestro ADSMRR radio replacement module. When the customer checks his tire pressure through the OEM feature on the Kenwood, it causes his CHECK ENGINE light to come on and blink. Any ideas or suggestions?

I doubt it's the check engine light that's blinking- it is normal for the orange TPMS light on the gauge cluster to blink when the vehicle info screen is being viewed. When we request information from that data system, the flashing is normal; it's a subaru thing (My '11 WRX does the same thing using this firmware).

When did the ability to check TPMS with this unit become available for Subaru vehicles?

Depends on the subaru- When we came out with the SU1 and SU2 harnesses, cars that are covered by them are able to show TPMS.

What phone are you using- Android or iPhone?

What error are you getting when you try to download your phone book?

Does answer/hang up work at all? When you hit the phone button on the steering wheel, does the light on the maestro blink like it sees you hitting the button?

How about a 15 Forester 2.5 Premium? I have a Pioneer 4200NEX, and cannot see TPMS. It was my understanding that a harness was coming out soon that would add that feature, and was wondering if it had and I just missed it.

Yes, the SU1 harness covers that vehicle.
