BMWhat users: help getting them to code out TPMS

Hi,

I put on my winter tires that do not have TPMS and get the dumb dashboard light. I contacted ivini (the makers of BMWhat) to see if they could add support to enable/disable TPMS and they got back to me promptly that it is on their todo list, but they want more people to ask for it before they actually work on it.

If you too are tired of seeing the dash light for TPMS, could you send a line to http://www.ivini-apps.com/contact.html to let them know?

Thanks!

I have asked for it too. I am definitely getting tired of the additional 2 chimes, warnings and dashboard light.

Why not just put sensors in your rims? Very handy to have, especially in the winter.

e36addict>> i do not have a JB4 yet. I did not know it could do that. It is on my buy list for next year

MightyMouse >> agree sensors are useful. I don't have them though, and it would be over $300 to buy them and get them mounted, so I just check my tire pressure weekly.

When coded out, the system instead changes to RDC which uses wheel speed variance to detect pressure loss. Not to mention that the lithiums in the TPMS will eventually fail. At $50 per wheel, I would rather just code it.

I didn't know that. I had mine coded off. Is this the default that happens when coded off?
