Well, the low tire pressure warning still comes on when I start the car, the the light stays illuminated. There doesn't appear to be any sort of leaks....any ideas? Has anyone else encountered this? Doesn't seem like something I should have to reset, or do I?
Did you drive the car after adding air?

The pressure sensors "go to sleep" when the car isn't moving (when the tires are not rotating) to prolong their battery life.
