Post TPMS help please......

I just got some new wheels and I bought a set of TMPS from tire rack. I reset the TPMS on the iDrive and everything was fine for a day. However I keep getting an error message "check tire pressures and reset TPMS." The tires icons are still green on the iDrive menu but I have a warning. The message flashes every time I start my car. I have checked the pressures in all the tires and reset the TPMS multiple times. But after 1-2 days of driving the same message pops up. This is driving me crazy....please help!!!

You might to recalibrate TPMS. Your dealer can do that.

Possibly need to double check when they installed the tires that they did not stick the pry bar to hard and hurt your sensor. I have to 1 sensor after bad mounting job

Good Luck

That sucks, I changed mine and put tireracks and everything worked fine. I just needed to reset on Idrive.
