    Question Need help to disable TPMS and enable FTM

    Hello,
    I need to disable TPMS and enable FTM on my e84 BMW X1. I was able to disconnect physical TPMS RDC module, but donít have the computer software to connect and code out TPMS and enable FTM. Does anyone have the computer software to connect to my car to perform numbers 2 and 3 below? Iím on San Diego. Thank you

    1) Disable/disconnect physical TPMS RDC module. The specifics are further down in this thread, but basically it should be under the car and behind the rear axle.

    2) Code OUT $2VB and ADD IN $265 in the VO.

    3) Change the following codes in CIC, KOMBI, and XDSC:
    CIC: RPA_CIC
    aktiv
    CIC: RDC
    nicht_aktiv
    CIC: RDC_SAFETY
    nicht_aktiv

    KOMBI: RDC_ALIVE
    nicht_aktiv
    KOMBI: MMI_ENA_RPA_RDC
    aktiv
    KOMBI: RDC_VERBAUT
    nicht_aktiv
    KOMBI: DSC_MIT_RPA_CC
    aktiv
    KOMBI: RDC_DISP_SWITCH
    nicht_aktiv

    XDSC: AUSSTATTUNG_RPA
    aktiv

    Then you can go into the status menu. If you go to the Flat Tire Monitoring System tab, it should see there is an error. Just go to the 2nd tab and reset it. Then you should see green in all corners.

    RPA FTM is now working on my US-spec E84.

    So I was able to use bimmercode expert mode to change all of the codes, but I wasn't able to locate AUSSTATTUNG_RPA to change to aktiv. I found all the other codes, also RDC_SAFETY was already nicht_activ so I kept it that way. The tire pressure light is no longer on, but it doesn't reset and states FTM System Error.

    I was able to locate a different code called RPA_SWITCH and changed it to aktiv, but still have FTM System Error.

    I wonder if there is a different app that would give me access to AUSSTATTUNG_RPA?

    The quest continues for me
