Default TPMs light staying on?

Yesterday morning, roughly -5c degrees out, I noticed my low pressure sensor light on in my EVIC.
Left front tire was lit Red and it showed 213kpa, while the other tires showed 220 kpa. (only about a pound difference give or take?)

Checked tire(s) all looked inflated.

Drove a few km's and left fron now showed 220 kpa just like the rest but yet my low tire light was still on?

Parked truck at work, shut off and figured it would correct itself when I came out last night, but noticed right away light was still on, even with all tires showing exact same pressure?

This morning, light was still on but it now showed all tires "RED" and the pressures were off on most, one showed 227, and others were around 220.

Also noticed on dash, my EVIC was telling me to inflate tires to 268kpa's??

Any idea what is going on and how can I correct/remove the warning lights?
These last couple of days have been the coldest since I owned my truck, but -5 is reallly no big deal, especially with measuring in Celcius.
(Tires are filled with the factory/dealer Nitrogen)

Thanks

This happens all the time, to get the light to go off you have to inflate the suspect tire higher than the rest. It is the only way to get it to go out. Then after it resets you can let some air out to get it back to normal. Hopefully this will help.

Thank you Knolly19 for that perfect answer!!!
I left work today and that darn TPMS warning came on, when I got home I put air in & it still would not go off, I read your post went out over inflated left front tire, and sure enough it went out. My points are real low but I will give you what I can.

Wasn't aware this was a known problem, but now that they are all lit, how do I go about it, over inflate all the tires??

And, like already mentioned, they are filled with Nitrogen so I assume they should all be over filled with Nitrogen as well or is it ok to just use air?

Thanks Knolly
