X3 Transfer case

I have an 2004 X3 e83 92,000 miles I got the car about 6 months ago. Last week I went outside and when I started it I got the 3 lights abs, 4x4 and red brake light(flickered and turned yellow). But the car turned off (needed a new battery) and when I turned it back on lights weren't there anymore and hasn't come back since and car still drives fine. My question is does bad tires or tires that are different brands and different tread mess up the transfer case ?

Currently on Friday I am changing all 4 tires to Pirelli p zero Nero all season. Because I have heard it causes damage if all 4 tires aren't the same brand. The tires on the car are the tires that I got with the car and have been driving with ever since. Please help thanks.

FESTCHIVE post 583 for the general 4 wheel tire warning

read the entire series of posts for a few hours .....you will see the many many folks who have learned never to mess up wheels /tire sizes/different manufactures tires etc on nearly any 4 wheel drive vehicle like your X

watch the video and see what can happen to any 4 wheel drive trashed transfer case....heed the warning about wheels and tires from Gary


best wishes
