Same problem here.
I filled all 4 tires and spare to 36 (according to the specs on door frame) and the "tire pressure too low" message is still there (after driving 80 miles).
I also have the "service now" message (at 15K), which I think was set when the dealer changed the oil (at 10K).

i had that same tire pressure problem. i filled the tire but i kept getting the message. a few days later i decided to look at the tire a lot more closely and i saw it had a nail in it and the tire pressure was back down to 20s after putting it to 35. you should definitely take a close look at all your tires.

Set it to 40 PSi. 36 is minimum. Tires are usually rated up to 50psi.

Not this. http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

I haven't had trouble with the pressure message, so can't really provide any advice other than double-checking the tire pressures, including the spare.
The procedure to reset the "Time For Service" is in this thread.

There are several different descriptions for the procedure, I can't remember which one I used to successfully reset the message, but the correct procedure is in there.
