TPM reset? Anyone with scanner near Sterling?

Hi locals, my 135 threw a TPM malfunction alert on the dash yesterday. I checked pressure, sure enough with the cold temps it was low so I filled them all to 36. I tried reset via the Nav screen and it while it did go off for a couple mins, it soon reappeared. I tried reset several times with similar results. Wondering if the code itself needs to somehow be cleared with a scanner tool (anyone have one)? Suggestions? If anyone can help me out shoot me a message.

Yea, tried that multiple times, no luck. Took it in today to Sterling, they are having me take it in and leave it for acouple days assuming it needs a new sensor and sensor programmed. Wish I could clear all codes and see if it comes back.

I have a PLX Devices wifi odb cabbie with Rev scanner on the Iphone. I think it will read and clear codes on BMWs (it does on the Lotus). If you are in Old Town sometime, pm me before hand and I can connect it up for you.
