Question Problems with Flat Tire Light

I have an 06 E85 M Roadster. I can't seem to get the flat tire indicator light in the dash to turn off. I don't believe I have TPMS because the valve stems on my stock wheels are regular black. I know how to turn off the flat tire indicator on my E46 M3, but can't do it on the Roadster for the life of me.

Any suggestions?

My manual says start engine, press tps button on console till yellow light comes on, then drive off. Light will reset and go out in a very short time.

Since yours is an 08, I'm going to assume you have TPMS. So, the reset procedure might be different.

I have an 06 and the above worked for me when I got a nail in a tire and dropped the pressure.

Yes you are correct on ABS vs TPMS monitoring. 06-earlier ABS, 07-on, TPMS. But I believe the reset procedure is the same.
