TYRE CONTROL INACTIVE (POSSIBLE ABS SENSOR) NOW SORTED

4 posts in this topic

Hi

my tyre control light has been on for a couple of months now

ive done so much research into finding the problem but end up with nothing

basicly my system is the one which DOES NOT have the valve as a sensor

and from what i can understand is that the only other way of it getting a reading is via my abs sensor

i took the car to a bmw specialist and he had the car on the machine

the end results were that the nearside front signal was low

it came up 256 times that there was a fault in that side

now

ive checked all my tyre pressures a number of times

ive tryed setting it

but no joy

also i thought it might have something to do with the right hight sensor

but thats on the off side

my only other therory is the abs sensor

but i have no tracktion or abs light on

any ideas

thanks hass

How are you actually trying to reset it? Best way to do it i found was to turn the ignition on, reset it, then start the engine and drive away and it resets

cheers

I have the same thing, it just doesn't work no matter how many times I reset it.

I've given up, I have a pressure gauge in the glove box instead...

Finally sorted the problem

it wasn't the abs sensor

I had poor conection in the abs multiplug

bit of wd40 and job done

took ages finding the problem but wen I found

the dws unit under the glove box I worked it out from

there

so peeps if u start having problems like I've had

check the abs multiplug
