Mine kicked on when I had a cold morning at 28psi. You have to fill them to 5 pounds over the psi on the door jamb. Then bleed them down to the correct pressure and drive a bit. The sensors aren't on when the truck isn't moving. I had the correct pressure for some time until I found out you need to reset the sensors and they aren't on unless you're above a particular speed.

If you have the 20" wheels, I believe the proper amount is 35 psi (cold). That is what the door sticker on my Laramie calls for. I think the 17" gets 40 psi.

I even used a seperate gauge and it shows the same. Has anyone else noticed this on theirs?
Mine seemed to be pretty much spot on with my gauge.

I think you have to bring them to at least 34 or 35 lbs to get the warning to reset.

At 33 lbs, they should reset after driving for a bit as the tire pressure will go up when warm. That is what I ran on the rear of my 09 QC 1500 4x4 with 20" tires. Sticker said 35 lbs ft and rr.
