Sounds like you need to get the tire pressure sensor programmed to your vehicle. the sensor is probably sending a signal but your vehicle is not excepting the data because as far it knows it may be coming from a vehicle parked beside you.

Cannot remove stripped lug nuts.2006 Impala 3.9 V-6 aluminum alloy wheels.

Forget removing tire from its current position. Taking it off without the right tools is next to impossible and ............

Bang the lug nuts with a nice lump hammer to loosen up any corrosion. Then try heating the nuts with a torch, and with a good pair of vise grips and and an extension for them loosen the nuts to remove the rim.

Warning light appeared on the dash, its red in colour looks like a horse shoe with an exlamation mark in the middke

That is the low tire pressure warning. It can come on for several reasons. It commonly comes on in the fall as temperatures drop, the air in the tires contracts and the pressure drops. Check the air pressure and fill as needed. The tires also all need to be within 4 psi of each other.
Another common cause is that one or more tire sensor needs the battery replaced. This is not generally considered a DYI project because for most cars the tires must be removed from the rims. Finally the sensor can be damaged by hitting a curb or by adding chemicals into the tire used to seal small leaks.
As long as you check your tires visually prior to driving it is usually ok to wait to service the sensor for when you replace or rotate your tires.

Please keep in mind driving on a tire with low pressure can damage the tire, the rim or even cause delamination of the tread and cause an accident. The Firestone recall that involved Ford Explorers several years ago was from driving on tires with low pressure.

Tpm reset 2008 isuzu i290

it resets every time you key on.
the Tire pressure monitoring system. TPMS.
on good cars, the system tells you exactly what is wrong.(dash)
EG, my jeep shows, R/F tire bad. so replace that sensor
or if tad older car,? i must use my scan tool to see which sensor is failing, on mine even the spare must work.....

so if no scan tool and a "intellectually challenged")ECU.(PCM) per above....
then what to do, tool-less? (no scanner tool for pcm no scan for TPMS)
you go to any tire shop in town, and say, scan my tires.
we have this scanner and wave it over the stems.
omg one is dead.
or one reads wrong fibs.
or other errors.... (over temp, serial wrong, etc)
it's just a battery powered sensor. on each rim stem.

that be about it....

How can i remove tire middle bolt / nut ?

If your talking about the nut in the front wheel, that's the axle nut and i am sure you don't want to take that out if your just trying to remove the wheel. The wheel should only have 5 wheel nuts holding it to the wheel hub. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help and if you are going to replace the CV joint or wheel hub, yes your going to have to remove that middle nut.

The service engine light is on on my 2005 mitsibushi endeavor.

There could be a couple of different reasons. These are the top 2 that I have seen if your air pressure is good.
1: You may have bent a rim on the inside or out, going over something in the road at high speeds, this happened to me. I hit a peice of wood on the freeway the rim is fine except for the small dent on the inside of the rim. The dealer said that was the cause of my Light on in the dash and I had to replace it with a new rim.

2: Have you, or do you have fix a flat in any of your tires? This can actually make the sensor in that tire go bad.
