Mein Auto: 2006 BMW 325xi
Question Tire pressure warning lamp

I have 2006 325xi. About 5 minutes into my drive to work, the big red light on the mileage gauge came on along with the little yellow one on the top. I pulled over and check all my tires. All of them were ok, the front right tire was at 29, so I filled it to 30. So both my fronts are at 30, and my backs at 32. I started my car and drove 15 miles to work and it never shut off. I tried initializing it through the gauge menu, but it didn't do anything. I also tried holding the button down while on the TPMS menu. Anyone have any idea how to fix this?

If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate it. I really don't want to take my car to the shop. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

It could be a bad sensor....make sure you are resetting it properly. You have to be parked before you hit reset......Phil

I got it. Turns out you have to hold the reset button for 5 seconds
