I had a small nail in the near new tyre that BMW service said needs replacing. I took it to my local tyre guy and he fixed it although he said he shouldn't. Happy days!
For X1 you need to turn engine on and use the scroller on the indicator stalk to get the reset indicator, then hold the BC button on the end of the stalk for 5 secs. I had to do it twice but prob solved.
Believe it or not, it's in the owners' manual...

SOURCE: run flat tyre warning light is on i have checked tyre pressure

This will only come on when a tyre has dropped in pressure (not spare). It work on the principle that a tyre with less air has a smaller rolling circumference and therefore a different wheel speed. This is then monitored against other signals from other wheels and determined that a loss in pressure has occured.

If all tyre pressures seem ok, there could be a chance of a small unoticeable leak and would require a bath test. This is when the tyre is dipped in water and bubbles would appear where the puncture is.

Ultimately the system may just need to be reset, or has incorrectly been reset from a tyre change. For this you just press and hold the TPC button (located on the centre console above the gearstick - looks like a flat tyre with an exclamation) turn on the ignition to position 2 and the light will come on re then yellow,go out, come back on yellow. When it comes back on yellow it re-initializing the system. You can let go of the button and after 20 odd seconds the light will go out for the final time, completing the reset.

If the light continues to come on after the reset then you definitely have a puncture somewhere!

Hope this helps!

What is a IHKA module and a IDrive screen on a 7 series 745li bmw 2004 and how to fix it

The iHKA is the air conditioning control unit. The panel where you turn on and off the air conditioning and adjust the temperature. The I-drive screen is actually called a CID and it is a control display for all the functions such as navigation, radio, settings, climate control, services due, etc... There really is not a way to fix them without replacement. The control units are programmed to the vehicle and are usually VIN specific and cannot be used from car to car without causing other issues. I have used them temporarily to test a module but never left in or tried coding mine to another model. That makes it hard because you must replace it and that is expensive !!! You can try a used one from a junk yard but most likely will cause new issues

My control display is not working along with all of the associated components. Additionally, it sounds like something is continuously running behind the display after I turn off the engine I couldn't...

There is circuit board behind the instrument cluster that has batteries, when those batteries begin to die the board will shut down non vital systems. Also this board controls the over head display as well as the center and iDrive systems.
