E60 Tyre Puncture warning

Postby ciscobloke1 » Mon, 16 Jul 2007 21:20:19 UTC

Hi

Does anyone know if and how I can reset the tyre puncture warning that has come up on the computer after changing my alloys,

I know BMW etc can do it but wondered if there was a way to do it yourself as i'll need to take wheels off again after BMW reset it to paint my calipers next week

Cheers
Mike

You reset the tyre pressure monitor from the iDrive.

Make sure your tyre pressures are all correct then start your engine, but don't drive off. Press down on the control knob to bring up the menu containing <vehicle settings> twiddle the controller to select <RPA> and press again. A screen will appear with an option to <set tyre pressure>. Select <set tyre pressure> and press the knob. Select <yes> and a message <initialising> will be displayed. Now go for a drive until the message changes from <initialising> to <active>.

Hope this helps :)

Depends which system you have. If you have the system where it's measured through wheel speed, then Bimmo is perfectly correct.

If you have a much later E60 that has the tpm in the valves, you will need to install the correct valves with the tpm to get rid of it.

How old is the car ?

In that case Bimmo's instructions should work just fine.
I am surprised they didn't fit the hubcentric spigott rings automatically, as nearly all aftermarket 5 series wheels come with the 1.5mm larger centre bore.

I guees the wobble is somewhere between 55 and just over 60 mph, then.
