TPM Show which Tire?

I've had my TPM show alert twice now in the past few days when the temperature went below 52. It shows all four tires yellow and says "low tire". I would think it would show me which tire. I checked the pressure on them all after the first time and they were fine. I'm positive it's just a temperature thing since I live at high altitude.

I'm just curious if anyone can tell me with certainty if it shows you which tire specificially when there really is a flat or whatever?

Thanks

Not sure about your MY, but just a generic call for low pressure. It frequently happens in cold temps, but i still check them anyway as for some reason X3's tires tend to leak air. Happened in my 07 and 08 and they do it equally so must be a design flaw in the valve stem area.

If you have a tire going flat, it will show you which one is low. I had a loaner 2011 X3 that picked up a nail and it alerted me with a message and highlighted the tire in yellow that was going flat.

I've never really had an issue with my dad's 2010 X5 and its TPMS- y'all sure you're checking tire pressures when they're cold, i.e not driven for the past 3-4 hours? I always exceed the label recommendation by a bit anyway.
