2008 328i TPM malfuction light

Hi everyone. just signed up but have reading threads on forum for a long time. I have had the dreaded ABS and DTC light on on my car for a couple of months now. Took it to a European Indy shop and diagnosed the ABS control unit was bad. for about 2 weeks I have been getting a intermittant TPM malfuction symble also. They said that the TPM system also runs through the ABS control unit, so it should fix the problem too. when they changed the ABS control unit the TPM light was not on. They checked each sensor in the wheels and said that they were fine. When driving home from the repair shop the TPM malfunction light came back on. Im just hoping that the ABS light doesnt do the same. Any suggesttions on why the TPM malfuntion light is still intermittant. Thanks

Many times it`s something as simple as a dirty/corroded wheel-speed sensor. Try the E90 Forum for more info.
