TPMS light after brake job

The full story is that a month ago I had my front rotors and pads changed, shortly after I got the TPMS light and checked all the tires. No nails or holes. So I reset the light.

Fast forward to last week, I started getting brake shudder/vibration at highway speeds, so I got the brakes replaced under warranty since it's been <2000 miles after the job. Today the TPMS light came up again, I'm wondering if the two are related????

It's a 2005 X3 with 129k miles. Could it be possible that the two are related? Perhaps the ABS sensor related?

Thanks guys.

This may seem silly, but did you check the tire pressure?

Yessir, everything was in a normal range. I'll check again later to make sure. I haven't been losing pressure

wheel speed sensors are part of the abs unit to detect if a wheel is spinning slower or faster than another during braking. the tpms light is required to come on when tire pressure sensor senses pressure below 25% (I THINK, could be 15%). and low tire pressure=slower wheel speed=incorrect abs action.
