Question about 2004 BMW 5 Series

1 Answer

Flat Tire Monitor

My iDrive is telling me I have a flat tire. None of the tires are flat, but this did happen before. One of the tires was below the recommended PSI and when inflated to the correct pressure the problem went away. Is this a small leak (it has been about 3 weeks or so since the first time)? Or is there a problem with the sensor?

Well it could be a slow leak in your tire however it can also be because of the temperature change.I have seen many of times that tpms lights have come on and only 1 tire would be low.It only takes aproximately 3 pounds of difference in tire pressure to set the light on.You may also check your spare tire also they have sensors too.

REAR passenger tire makes loud clunking and grinding noises when turning more than 30-45 degrees above 5-15 mph


I don`t think you have cv axles in the rear of that.My guess would be wheel bearings could be grinding. Donut spares are strickly to be used for short periods of time and not to be driven at any higher rates of speed. Some damage may have occurred during the actual incident when you had the flat initially.Damage to the rear axle itself,

DOES THE 750 LI 2006 HAVE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORS


It either has Tire Pressure Monitor (TPM), or Flat Tire Monitor (FTM)

TPM:Checks the tire inflation pressure in the four mounted tires. The system indicates if the tire inflation pressure has dropped considerably in one or several tires.

FTM:Keeps track of the inflation pressures in the four mounted tires as you drive. The system triggers an alert whenever the inflation pressure drops significantly in relation to the pressure in another tire.

Low tire pressure light stays on and the tire pressure is up on all 4 tires is there a sensor or wire that is bad and also where do i look for it at ?


The tire pressure monitor must be reinitialized. There should be a tire button to press and hold or if you have idrive then it will be an option under car settings I think. Your BMW owners manual will have the exact procedure.

Feels like I'm running over rumble strips. Happens intermittently


When was the last time your wheels where spin balanced? Have the tires checked for wheel balance its probably out of balance. It will cause the tires to cup and it will make flat spots on the tires. To check rubb your hand over tire make sure tires don't have cupping on the outside tread and or flat spots through out the tire. Cupping - one tread is slightly higher than the rest.
Flat spots- center of tire will be flat or it could be all over the tire.
