Chuck, I'm not sure what happened in your case. I have not heard of this happening to anyone else, and I have coded this on many cars with the 46.6 update up though 47.4, and I have yet you see an ISTA/P version that it does not work on.

I would go back and double check the coding in my Post # 72.

Yeah, the guy at the dealer when I purchased the car said that they had too many issues with people not understanding when the pressure dropped etc what to do; they they stopped importing the cars with TPMS and put in the FTMS to avoid service calls at the dealership and 'false postives'...

Yes, I got the TMPS sensor, and valve stem only... I made an assumption based on early reading here that would do the trick - didnt do my research too well and as result wasted some cash, unless I could get the other parts etc; I got a helpfull guy at the dealer who said he would try and reverese enginer the parts list for me, to see if we can order those parts - If I can get the parts, I'll let you know - as I will likly need way more help coding the VO as you suggested -

if I can get the parts, I'll post the numbers here... in case there is other people who want to try this....

Be sure to code both of them.
I'm sure I know the answer to this, but your kidding right? (i'm sure you are but hell!, I can barley keep the coding straight for one now I have to do two!

NVE = Night Vision Equipment = 6UK

I'd love to see you try and finish this retrofit. There are a lot of people that would love a DIY on replacing FTMS with TPMS. The coding will be easy, so I would not worry at all about that part. You need to figure out where the receiver modules go in the Wheel Well, and make sure your current RDC Module can support them.

I am kidding. I am sure you have only one Instrument Cluster in your car, but it was listed twice. Probably a copy and paste error.

Ahh, NVE! Its interesting for sure - not sure I would spend the money on that again (but thats a different topic I think I commented on before here

As for the project; I'm VERY interested in moving it along - I have a few bucks to toy with this, as I'm knee deep in it now anyways (and I hate to give up!)

If you have some experts in mind that can help point me to get some answers etc I will chase that down and see what can be done. The dealer here in town has been very helpfull, but I suspect this will be past there edge of understanding as there is pretty much no canadian cars with TPMS!

I suspect a friendly USA dealer (or simular) who has experance replaceing and order these parts could be very helpfull - so if someone has contacts we can use to come up with idea's I'd be willing to try them out.

ohh;
I actualy do have two... Is that not normal to have two?


there is one in the back seat, and it comes with a wheel and a pedal also - I've never seen it - but some people give me instructions like there is one back there!

Your dealer still should be able to look in their system, and see what parts you would need.

I think the other main missing piece you need is the CONTROL UNIT RDC, but the good news is that the new TPMS requires only one control unit for all 4 wheel modules. Prior to 2010, it required one control unit per wheel module.

Well; here is the latest on the adding of TPMS parts to the the cars that dont have enough parts to make this work;

"Now to your question about converting your tire pressure system to the TPMS-system:

I have compared your car to one that would have the system, called BMW for your question and talked to my college.

Result of the researches: The answer to the question is: NO

There are more details in the set up for the 550xi besides a module + the different ABS-connection. According to BMW the TPMS-system for all the tires is not retrofit able."


Sounds like a who collection of parts etc - seems ike getting an answer on exactly what those parts are not not likly. The fact it requires new ABS sensors etc also scares me, as that could cause all sorts of concerns downt he road... I'm going to not proceed with this work based on the number of systems it touchs, the complexity and safty concerns.

I would not expect anything less from BMW. Ask them about retrofitting anything, and if they do not officially offer it as a retrofit, the answer will be always be no.

It may not be practical, I'm not disputing that, but BMW stating it isn't retrofittable does not mean much. They will also tell you that you can't retrofit a CIC for a CCC, yet it has been done a thousand times.

I guess the big issue for me... I can't find a list of parts to figure out the scope of the project.... If I had that... It may be easy to decide...

I'm not one for playing with safety systems either... So depending on what that parts list looks like I may not have the stomach for it... A simple sensor swap is not a big deal, but I wold need to find someone who can actually get a list of parts together... That seems to be very hard...

Glad to hear that, as I have not heard of any other TPMS issues on any other new builds.

I think March, 46.x, will likely be too old. You probably need at least July, 47.x.

I would grab 47.5, and add the 48.1 CAFD's myself.

This feature is working on my 2013 M5.

I got to say, I am wondering how accurate it is.

My TPMS sensors seem fairly accurate, +/- 0.5 psi compared to the gauge i have.

Ok in a WTF moment my TMPS is now showing data. I bumped a curb pulling out of the bank and switched to the display just to check and the pressure and temp data is now there.

No idea why I have not messed with coding in months and my car has not been in the shop.

We will see if it stays...

FWIW
DLM

PS I did scuff my rim dammit. Not too bad but I know it is there.

Weird. I installed a new set of wheels/tires/TPMS a month ago or so. Initially the pressures didn't show after resetting the TPMS system, even though each tire on the display went "green". A couple of miles later, the pressures started showing and continue to show.

I would be willing to bump a curb to get mine to work... If it was certain....
Mine have been green no errors or data for months now....
