I just took my grand prix to the dealer to have them check the tire pressure system because it would indicate way off readings and indeed the pressure was way off so I adjusted all 4 tires but the indicator still tells me one of my tires is low on air. How do I reset the system because according to the dealer that needs to be done but they charge 60 dollars.

Re: 2007 grand prix tire pressure monitor reset
After you adjust the tire presuure you must drive the vehicle for a few miles then look at the gage again/ you can also disconnect battery for 15-20 minutes. Please rate my response Thank you very much

Using the Driver Information Center (DIC)
Important: After resetting, the tire pressure monitoring (TPM) system requires up to 8 km/h (5 miles) of flat, smooth road straight line driving in each of the 4 speed ranges to complete the calibration process. For further information, refer to Tire Pressure Monitor Description and Operation . If the TPM system does not reset, refer to Driver Information Center (DIC) Switch Inoperative .
Set all tire pressures to the recommended kPa/psi. Refer to Vehicle Certification, Tire Placard, Anti-Theft, and Service Parts ID Label .
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Press the vehicle information button until TIRE INFLATION MONITOR SYSTEM PRESS (down/left arrow) SWITCH TO RESET is displayed.
If the system is being reset due to a low tire pressure condition, press and hold the down/left arrow button until TIRE INFLATION MONITOR SYSTEM HAS BEEN RESET is displayed. If the system is being reset due to a tire rotation, press and hold the down/left arrow button for 5 seconds.
Release the down/left arrow button and TIRE PRESSURE NORMAL is displayed.
Turn the key ahead to run mode, without cranking and push gas pedal to floor and back up 3 times within 5 sec, this should reset the oil change light. as for the tire pressure light there are a couple of procedures, but ensure first that the pressures are all above 28 psi, and are the same. however, without the use of a tpms tool to communicate with the tire monitor sensors it may not reset. did you have any tires changed over, or rotated? if so the use of the tpms tool is much easier to reset the light. Probably better off bringing to a tire or mechanical shop that deals with it regularly. It is actually not that difficult, but the tool will allow you to tell if a sensor is faulty, or has a weak battery, etc.. hope this helps
if you still have all papers that came with vehicle when purchase from dealer it will describe what vehicle has, also, do you see on wheels where air valve a metal nut, this will tell you, regular rubber valves mean no tire pressure monitor, let me know if this help you, some other options
check tire pressures with a gauge and set to the specs either in door jam or in glove box. your car must be equipt with tire preasure monitoring system so the sensors are inside the wheel normally part of the valvestem.
You need to set all the pressures to 35 psi. first then drive for approx.1/4 mile. If this doesn't work to reset the light (keep in mind the code itself will still be stored even though the light goes off) you will need to take it to your Nissan Dealer to have it scanned as there may be a malfunction with the sensor. If faulty and you are under 36k miles then it should be covered under your factory warranty. Hope this helps.
when the tire pressure is normal in all of the tires the light should go out other wise you will need the Kent-moore TPMS tool to check for a bad sensor and setting the monitors locations. so it may be easyer to take it to a GM Dealer if light does not go out
