TPMS CC 142 - can't get TMPS warning to go away

Car is a 2007 (06/2006 build) 335i coupe. Tires are stock size 225/40/18F and 255/35/18R on stock BMW wheels, TPMS in place. Pressures are 37psi all around. LF tire is newer than RF by about 2-3mm tread. Rears are now brand new Michelin Pilot Super Sports, fronts are PS2 ZP run flats.

I CANNOT get the damn check control warning for tire pressure to go away. If you push and hold the BC button with the tire warning in the display, it gives me CC ID 142. Found off a British website it means Check Tire Pressures. No amount of driving and resetting the TMPS through ths stalk will get rid of this damn warning. It comes on as soon as I turn the ignition on, and stays on whether I am resetting the TPMS or not.

This all started when I swapped front wheels/tires left to right. I left the garage without first resetting the TPMS, and I got the warning after driving about 100yds. I stopped, went through the stalk to reset the TPM, but it's been persistent for 4 days - about 50 miles.

I can't find any coding updates for the RDC. No fault codes in anything. I will now try lower pressures - matching the door sticker, but I already tried lower pressures and still couldn't get it to clear.

Anyone else seen this problem?

You possibly might have a broken/damaged TPMS sensor or the TPMS battery life may be dead or low. You have an 06 build and the average life span of the sensors is about 5 years.

You have to be parked scroll through the bc menu till you find the option to reset the tpms push the button on the stalk but dont hold it then push and hold the button till it resets.

Whether or not you use the door plaque pressures on reset should not matter as the system uses the pressures at the time of reset as the baseline.

With your build date, are you certain you have TPMS and not FTM (which compares wheel rotational speeds per the ABS sensors)?

I know I'm reviving an old thread, but I'm having the exact same problem and it's driving me nuts. I too have a 06/06 build 335i and the issue started last year after a flat tire repair. Today, I did the obvious and switched out all 4 sensors in the wheels with brand new ones. Unfortunately this did not solve the problem, I still have the CC ID 142/TPMS logo pop up on startup and shutdown regardless of whether I clear all codes with INPA.

I did a little research on RealOEM.com and there seem to be four main components to the system.

1. Control Unit RDC
2. Reception Antenna RDC
3. Wheel electronics module, RDC
4. Trigger transmitter RDC

I've already ruled out (3) by replacing them, so it's either the trigger's, antenna or the control unit. None of these are cheap parts, so I was wondering if any one has any insight into which component is bad? Thanks for your time everyone!

I had a similar case. I replaced the sensors but I found out that the wires going to the #2 antenna in your diagram were cut . You might not see them if you still have your factory plastics under your car .

Thanks. Had a look there, wires seem intact. Going to indy that specialises in BMW's tomorrow to see if they can figure it out. I'll post the resolution if so.
