All 4 tires reading low all of a sudden

Went to dinner, got back in our 2013 Z435is and the tire pressure monitoring system declared all four tires were flat. I'll check the pressures manually in the morning to clarify if this is actually true. This could be an error in the system I suspect. Anyone have this happen to their Z4?

I would be suspicious of a prankster letting the air out of your tires.

On all four wheels perhaps the last reply, however the system does not identify which wheel is at fault just that there is a problem. A number of things can cause a warning light, but the first thing is to check all the pressures, if you then pump them up to recommended psi, then do a reset, many people check there tyres, pump them up but don't do a re-calibration and then get a warning light.....
If one wheel is much lower than the others then you probably have a slow puncture........

All four we down around 6 or 7 psi. The temperature in Florida has fluctuated recently. Perhaps this caused air to leak. Filled them back up (36 front / 44 rear) and all good now. Didn't reset though because the warning lights disappeared after that.

you might want to consider anti tamper valve stem caps.................I would think you have been pranked as the most probable cause........not that letting someones tyres down is a decent prank.......
