Try filling your tires with nitrogen instead of air.

I used to get the tpms light every morning and evening when it was cold.
I got my oil changed and told them about it and they suggested "nitrofil" and I have never had the light come on again.

I think it cost me like $40.00 for all four tires.

Are your rims TPMS compatible? If not that light will stay on forever! BWhahahahahah! But on another note nitrogen is good shit I have run it for years.

Comes stock on the R35 GT-R. Oooo ahahahahahah special.

plus due to the difference in density, it will maintain its pressure more evenly than air.

like these guys said check the tpms if you didnt have therm changed over from you stock wheels then the light will never go off. if you have take the car to a dealer and they can reprogram it to read the new signal.

is the tpms light flashing when you first turn the car on?
if so then check your valvestems (where u put air in the tires) and check if its metal or rubber.

if its rubber, the sensors (metal valvestems) were left on the stock wheels and need to be installed to the new wheels, otherwise the tpms ecu doesnt find the sensors and it throws the code.

if its metal, then they turned the ignition on while the wheels werent in range for the tpms ecu to see which is throwing a code because it thinks the sensors are broken.

if its just solid on and u have metal valvestems, check your tire pressures.
