TPMS and RDC system help

I am trying to get rid of the TPMS light on my cluster, I scanned the car and I get 5 codes:

Error RDC system
Error wheel sensor VL
Error wheel sensor VR
Error wheel sensor HR
Error wheel sensor HL

Iím assuming all four sensors didnít fail at the same time and itís the RDC unit that needs replacing, does that sound correct?

The cars a 08í 335i with aftermarket wheels and tires w/sensors.

What a useless forum.

Iíve posted here too many times and never get any help, what the fuck happened to forums, they used to be helpful back in the mid 2000s and now you either get hundreds of views and no help or someone making stupid remarks.

lol

Maybe expecting a prompt/free all encompassing response in less than ~12 hours time is your actual problem..??

Given how easy it is to just code this junk system out and revert to FTM, that may be your best bet.

Plus, if you think this forum is bad, try joining an E9X Facebook group and see how bad the responses can really be haha

Not sure if you guys know how to use the search function… I do have a post on replacing the module, do a search in my post history.
If you have a bad rdc module you will most likely have a tpms error that you cannot reset. I am not saying the having a tpms error for each wheel is not a possibility though. I would recommend replacing the module with a new one but it will require coding.
As for the error for each tire, take the car to a tire shop, most can test each sensor while still on the car to see if they are still functioning. This will narrow down the problem if the receiver in the module is dead or not.

While I personally would just code it out, I would agree that's more likely an RDC issue than all the sensors failing at once. I coded mine out a while back even though it worked fine. I'll sell my RDC if you want it
