Another TPMS Q: Wrong wheel indicated in display?

MY '13 - First cool night here last night and this morning my TPMS goes off and indicates the right front tire needs attention - first time its gone off in a year of ownership. When I check the fronts the right one is at ~34psi and the left front is at ~30psi... which I'm not quite understanding. Why would the instrument cluster display have the sides wrong?

I've adjusted pressures all around and am now back in 35/36 stock spec F/R. Reset the TPMS an I've also read through the manual looking for some way to calibrate sensors with locations and haven't found anything. Has anyone seen this before? Nothing is coming up in forum searches... any thoughts/help appreciated.

They could have been put on the wrong side. If it happens again just switch the front wheels from Left to Right. You cant relearn the sensor position without a tpms tool.

Ok, so they are specific to wheel/location?

Thanks. Wasn't sure if that was the case, nothing in BMW documentation that I can find re the TPMS system.

I'm wondering if I can just change the receiver address or somehow code the TPMS for the change. Think I'll air down the other one to see what happens now.

You have to have a tpms reset tool to change the rf address. All the car will do is re-sync the sensors via idrive. Much easier to just swap the wheels from side to side.
