335i TPM Sensor problem!

I recently ran over a rock and punctured, my passenger side rear tires, inner sidewall. The Red TPM indicator came on, and I notice the loss of tire pressure. I got a new tire from Firestone (exact same as the one I was replacing) and had Just Tires put it on for me. Well, the red TPM indicator is still on, with the new tire! I tried resetting the system - nothing! Both front tires read 34PSI both rear read 38PSI on my 2007 ss4i sport with 18 inch tires.
After resetting the system I drove the car briefly, no faster than 30mph.

Any help would be highly appreciated!

After just dropping $460 for a new tire/installation - I'd hate to waste more time and have to give the dealer more money to clear the message indication!

If you have an indirect (ABS-based) system, it may take more driving time at highway speeds to reset. Check your owner's manual. Pls confirm if you have the indirect system.

Pardon my ignorance, but how do I check if I have an indirect (ABS system) I searched my owners manual, but were unable to verify. Its a 2007 335i sport premium and winter package sedan with 18" RFT

Tire shops have a range of "universal" tpms "reset" tools available to them. Either your shop didn't have these tools, or you have an "indirect" system. I suggest that you call the tire shop to inquire about this if they can remember your tire particular tire installation.

Although I hesitate to post this...as it may not look exactly like your valve situation, this is what a direct TPMS looks like (BMW).

with the bmw direct system, no reset tool is needed.
you need to make sure that you select reset while the car is stopped, untill the display says resetting.

I agree that a "direct" TPMS system would not require a reset tool for BMW...but I'm not sure if a 2007 335i had a direct or indirect system as this was about the time of changeover.

the indirect system doesnt require a reset tool either.

3/07 prod and newer use the direct for the sedans/wagons
coupes/verts are from SOP.

Thanks for all the helpful posts guys. Turns out I have the indirect sensor on my '07 335i. It took, driving the car over 50mph before I could reset the TPM sensor indicator, right on the dash menu.

Noted, glad it's fixed. The government (NHTSA) test procedure to verify "compliance" of the TPMS system calls for driving the vehicle between 31 and 62 mph for some time...(about 30 min., although this time may vary) to extinguish the warning icon.
