Inactive Icon!

Hey guys i have a 07 e92 and just recently went from stock 18's to bbs lm 19's and I'm getting the INACTIVE ICON at start up and even as I'm driving. Does this have to do with alignment, fender rolling, or tire pressure?

One more more of your TPMS's is failing. The internal battery in them only lasts between 5-7 years and once the battery goes, the whole sensor has to be replaced. Are you still using the original sensors? Any good tire shop should have a TPMS diagnostic tool which can detect which sensor(s) have weak batteries.

Where is the best source for new TPMS's and do you have to have them programmed to the car?

I'm having the same issue? Thanks.

I didn't think the '07's had TPMS. My '08 just uses the difference in rolling circumference to give indication of low tires. Doesn't have TPMS in each wheel.

This is always posted when tpms comes up. US - TPMS / CA - ABS to detect. You can tell if you have TPMS cause the valve stems are metal and in the CA ones they're plastic. Google it this is just off of memory.
