TPMS compatibility

I just bought a set of tires + rims on Craigslist that were marketed as X5/X6 compatible, with TPMS sensors included. When I mount them on my 2014 X5 however, the sensors do not work. Resetting them just keeps the percentage at 0%, then returns an error message after a while.

The wheels were originally bought in Jan 2014, for what I believe was a 2013 X6M. According to the seller, he also used them on a 2016 X6M though. I asked him which car he drove, and his message was:

"It was a 2016 x6m so I believe it was the F16
It was my wife's car, she also had a 2013 x6m which would have been the e71 so I'm not sure which sensors would be in them.
I think they are all 433MHz on 2012- current x5 and x6"

Is it possible that these sensors worked both on an 2013 E71 and 2016 F16, but not on my 2014 F15? Or do they have to be reset in a different way that I need to visit a dealer for?

TPMS is always a pain for some reason on x5. There was a pre-2013 era and post-2013 era of tpms. Two different tpms - both have 433MHz but they are not compatible.

2013 was a year when BMW changed tpms sensors. So I don't know what to do in your case. It's possible that you get old version and they will not work.

If it came off E71 X6M, it won't sync on F15/F16/F85/F86.
Not sure how he determine that it work perfectly fine on his wife's F16 X6M? The later F16 X6M itself doesn't even match up.

Thanks, looks like I'm out of luck then. He's no longer responding to my texts, so my guess is they never worked on his 2016 X6M and he simply lied not to lose a sale. Lesson learned on my end.
I'm going to have to bring it to a tire shop or my dealership to get the new sensors.
