Question about 2002 BMW M3
It is a cirle shaped light with three dashes on both sides of the circle. I can't find my manual, can you help?
PS The car runs fine as far as I can tell...
This is the Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensor check your tire pressures ensuring they are all up to specification and then 'Reset' the system using this method:
Initializing the system
Initializing is necessary to familiarize the system with the correct tire inflation
Repeat this process after any changes in tire inflation pressure, tire replacement or rotation.
1. Check the tire inflation pressure in all the tires, comparing them with the
inflation pressure table (page 25 of your manual), and adjusting their pressure if necessary
2. Turn the ignition key to position 2
3. Press button as long as you need to until the indicator lamp in the instrument cluster lights up. After a little while, the indicator lamp will go out
4. After a few minutes, the Flat Tire Monitor will accept the current inflation
pressure as the value to be measured against, and from that point on, can detect and report a flat tire.
Activating/deactivating the system
The system is automatically activated in ignition key position 2 and consequently is on whenever the vehicle is operated.
To deactivate the system, tap the button, the indicator lamp will light up
To activate the system, tap the button again; the indicator lamp goes out.
Deactivate the system when snow chains are mounted, since false warnings and undetected losses in pressure are possible under these kinds of conditions.
