Do you keep the TPM display visible for a long period of time? Like always? If so, you've probably drained the batteries in the wheel unit radio transmitters. At least that's what I learned on my 2011 911 when it started doing this. I was told to never leave the TPM display visible; when it's shown the transmitters are using battery power.
