The 2015 has standard TPMS with sensors in each wheel. You either have a pressure problem or a dead sensor that needs to be reset/replaces by a shop.

Oh man that sucks. The car has 2800 miles and i'm the first and only owner. I have not hit any potholes but we did recently get a drop in temperature so I'm hoping that is what caused it. I used to have a bmw and it never had such sensitive sensors. Is this a normal occurrence for the Z?

Sometimes and the batteries in the sensors are not replaceable. You maybe able to get sensors replaced under warranty if they have failed. Good luck getting it sorted

ok, I fixed it. Simply put air in the tires and drove around for 5 minutes, the light went away.

Keep in mind there is a tpms light, and a low air pressure light. Consult your manual to see the difference. We can provide better help if we know what warnings are actually being displayed. Glad it was an easy and hopefully cheap fix for you.

My only TPMS failure was on my drive home from the dealership (an hour or so away,) but the car only had 10-15 miles on it when it showed the warning. It WAS the warning for a bad TPMS, and not just an under inflated tire. The biggest issue, was when I called the dealership to repair/replace it, since they thought I didn't understand that the tire might be low and just need some air. I forget what the different indicators are/were, but after I read that section of the manual to them, they finally realized that it was, indeed, a bad sensor. Problem is, we have to deal with these sensors just because some idiot didn't know what a tire pressure gauge was, and needed an idiot light to tell them they've been an idiot again. There have been a couple of times in the last five years that the sensors indicated low pressure, but the indicator turned back off a few miles down the road--double checked the pressure, and it was okay in all four tires. Just a false alarm, I guess.

The Z's only the second car I've had which had T-PMS on it (the other was the Phaeton, which told you which tire and I believe it's pressure- including the spare in the trunk), and it's amazing how quickly the warning light re-sets. Such as before you get to the driveway at the gas station. The Phaeton took about a half-mile, but of course it was a '94.

Speed, I don't know if any of the senders have replaceable batteries, I think they're all potted-up.

I know the ones on our cars and most do not but I think I read there were some that could have the batteries replaced.



This potted BS is annoying. The ones that use the ABS system to detect low wheels is a clever solution if you have to have it.
