I was driving on a highway yesterday doing about 85 mph. I was 70 miles from home and all of a sudden the display said I had a flat tire and needed to stop and check. My 750 (Oct/2005 manufacturing date) doesn't have individual pressure sensor in each wheel, it uses the ABS to monitor the rotation of a tire in relation to other tires.


I pulled over and took a look at the tires, they looked fine. I got back in my car and started the engine, the warning display was gone. I drove on but at a slower speed. This morning I used a gauge to check the pressure in all four tires and they were all normal.

Hope it was only a computer glitch.

It was. It has happened to me also. Just reset the FTM, you should be fine.

It just recently happened to me, too. I discovered that one of the tires had a slow leak - about 2 lbs of pressure a week. It turned out to have a cracked rim. Unlucky, I bought the tire and wheel protection plan and it paid for the replacement of the wheel.

BTW, if anyone else has one of these wheel protection plans, make sure you dent the rim before making a claim. My inspector initially rejected my claim because he said the crack was not the result of any impact since there was no visible sign of the cause. I had to "negotiate" with the claims manager to get them to approve the claim. I basically told them that my firm specializes in insurance tort and I will sue for both compensatory (peanuts) and punitive damages (up to $2 million) if he gives me any more hassle on this mere $550 claim. Scum sucking bottle dwellers.... Wait, that was supposed to be a joke on lawyers. :rofl:
