F10 TPMS (RDC) Retrofit

Hi Guys,

I would like to make retrofit and add RDC sensors to have pressure and temperature information in my CIC Navi.

Have you ever made this retrofit?

1. I will buy rims with tires which have sensor in the rims.
2. I need to use E-sys to code VO - S2VBA.
3. I need to buy module.

And now is the question which one. I checked ETK and there is just only one module for my car.

https://www.etkbmw.com/bmw/EN/search...0d/ECE/36_1524

But when I am checking for ex. BMW 550 there is much more equipment to buy. There are some antennas, etc.

Thank you for your support.
Br,
Sebastian

Hi,

I've done this. Had powered trunk so could pick up the can bus in the boot.

Fairly easy retrofit and well worth it!

What year is your car? The earlier CIC F10s the data doesn't show up anyway.

Can you write what have you added? Which control units?

Hm... That may be early enough that you wouldn't get the info you want even with TPMS. Yours is CIC I think, but it may be the second gen which I think it works with. When I coded mine to show that info it just had blanks so you might want to verify before going through all of this. If you're able to use esys, you can look to see if you have HU_CIC, but I'm not sure of other ways to figure it out.

I have a 06.2013 f11 I am planning in installing a 2011 rdc module. However the sensors in the wheels are from a 2015 f11. Does that work with my NBT and 2011 RDC module?

My '12 (build date 9/11) 535i wouldn't show the readouts until I changed out the TPMS sensors. These are the sensors I purchased that work. Even on my '14 NBT I had to code the readouts. As in the '12, it just showed green tires.
