Trouble changing tires for '99 Toyota Corolla

I have a 1999 Toyota Corolla; I got a flat tire and when we went to change the tire it will not come off, as if something on it is stuck or holding it there, when it's up on the jack you can't even spin the tire, it won't move--

Sounds like the wheel is just rusted to the hub a little bit. Take all the lug nuts out exept for one. Leave the last one on about half way. Make sure the vehicle is sturdy on the jack you are using and that the car is park(or gear for manual) and have the emergancy brake set.. Now if you have a heavy dead blow hammer you can give the wheel a healthy wack from behind, or you can turn your back to the wheel and give it a donkey kick at the bottom of the wheel. The last lug will keep the wheel from flying off at you. Now dont be alarmed about the wheel not turning, if this is a front wheel you are trying to turn, you shouldnt be able to turn it becasue the car is either in gear or park. Good luck and let me know if it works out okay

Low tire pressure light won't stay off after proper reset.

Some newer Toyota vehicles have a sensor in the spare tire. Tires loose air over time naturally. I would check out the spare.
When did this TPS light start coming on?
Have you had new tires put on, or had a flat repair done before the light?

I have a '99 Corolla, and mine did that until I replaced a back tire and got my wheels aligned. Did you change the tires yourself or did a shop do it (which means they balanced the tires)? When was the last time you got an alignment?
