Did you ever figure out a fix for this?
Yes i did, i realized a gallon of water spilled in the trunk last shopping trip and it fried my RDC module (under the little cubby behind the rear passenger wheel arch). Take off the carpeting on the sides and look to see if water got in there. Remove the module located in its own little spot in the styrofoam holster. unplug and dry everything out, soak up all water and wipe off any mildew/mold. If you let it sit, it can screw with your battery too (gauges go haywire and all dash lights come on). Also, if you have them, your parking sensors should go haywire. i dont have them so only my tpms went out. Currently have no TPMS, but I could care less

If you just installed new sensors and this happened, you need to have the module reset using INPA coding. The dealer or a local BMW coder can do it for you
