I had new tires installed on my 04 A8L and get a malfunction message after about 30 minutes of driving when following the owner's manual procedure to store the new tire pressures. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have triple checked the pressures are correct, obviously the system is having trouble learning the new position/pressure from the sensors. Thanks, Tim
I have a 335i 2007 sport package, 19inch rims with OE sensors working fine until recently I start getting TPMS Malfunction/ Inactive. I took it to American Tire Depot and they tested all 4 sensors all reading correctly, also I took out the RDC (white module in the back) and checked also since I have electronic background I replaced the only thing which could be bad the capacitor in the control unit.
Also I replaced two sensors for the front tires OE exact part bought from Tomkinson BMW parts online. (Good online prices). I have 33PSI front and 37PSI Rear. If I run the car in the morning it works fine for the first 10mins and then inactive start decorating my dashboard plus the annoying noise. From I-drive I reset the TPMS 1 zillion times and took out the battery over night one time. I took it to BMW dealer (Southbay CA) tech reset said no errors found again I drove for another 10mins and the light comes back. Before I give up any ideas? Will the antenna do this? Should I replace the Antenna? And where is located? I have the Bentley manual but didnít find anything about the RDC Antenna!!!
