Default DIC: check tire pressure

Have an 05 sle my driver information keeps saying check tire pressure...I put exact pressure in all tires and it didn't help...would anyone know if this could be a problem with the air leveling shocks in the rear ?? But I had the rear shocks replaced about a year ago without this message. It has 125,000 on it could the front struts be worn and not keeping the car level they have never been replaced
Thanks

Sorry if you have, but I have to ask the easy questions. Did you reset the DIC after filling the tires?

If yours works the same as mine, you fill the tires, then with the DIC warning up hold the reset button to reset the status. These systems don't actually monitor your air pressure, they monitor tire rotation, so they can tell if a tire gets low by its rotational pattern.

Tom is correct. You have to reset the system at a time when you know all tires are at the correct pressure. With the display in tire pressure mode, hold the reset button until you see the display reset. Should be okay after that.
