Lightbulb 530i : Control System Malfunction, Transmission Fault, Flat Tire Monitor

Got 2004 530i. When I drive slowly on local street, getting the following message on i-Drive display " Control System Malfunction, Transmission Fault, Flat Tire Monitor" , and switch to limp mode. Once I restart, message disappear and work normal.
*** It doesn't happen on Highway drive*** Is it related to Vaccum ( may be air leak ?).
*** I am getting this for last 2 month, put 5k since it started. Any suggestion? - Thank You

You're likely on the hunt for a faulty sensor.
