TPM 2003 760Li
This feature is driving me insane. How do I set it? I just received a flat tire warning, and it's correct, my tire pressure on all tires was around 20 psi. I filled up my tires, turned the car back on and the warning is gone - Good!

I use the iDrive and go to settings, go to TPM, then I get the thing that looks like an enter button, and another one that says Set.

It shows that the TPM is in the initializing stage - but it never gets off this stage. Please help, thanks!

I just had my sensors replaced(yesterday). Its showing the correct PSI but still telling me to check the pressure. I just did the initialization yesterday. I don't know how long your supposed to drive it before everything resets fully. It sound like you just need to drive the car more.

I just see a screen that says not to drive while putting the air in the tire - something silly like that, I don't recall what it says exactly. Then it says initializing the stage, and it just hangs on there...I drove around the block - about a 5 minute drive. I don't see a picture of a car or anything like that though

Init usually takes 15-30 minutes of driving. I had my sens replaced and drove home on the freeway. Ill try to update you as best I can. We may both be in the same predicament. IE "how to tell the car that the pressure is good?"

So, I noticed you can only press the "initialize" button when the car is off. Then turn on the car and go for a drive.

I think you have an FTM system , not TPMS.

Drive around 20 minutes and it will set itself.

20 psi sounds low.

I think you are right! It is an FTM system, why though does it just have an enter button and a SET button? Yes, 20 is low, I filled them with air :D

FTM measures the pulses of wheel via the ABS system over a period of time to "set" a baseline. then when you have a sudden deviation or "flat" , the system warns you.

TPMS is based on actual sensors in the wheels that transmit the actual PSI to the car. Most 760's come with FTM standard and TPMS as an option.
