Just bought this car..."low pressure" is lit up for the tire pressure

(1999 Buick Regal)
"Low Tire Pressure" light stays lit all the time, have checked air pressure but it still stays on...It does have the 225/R6016's on all four they are a couple different brands, but same size. What is the fix...

This info is in the owners manual but here you are... FIRST...Be sure ALL tires.. including **spare tire** are at the correct PSI... Inside the fuse box on the passenger side is a small red 'reset' button,, with key on.. push and hold button until light starts to flash, let off button..turn off key!! TPMS is reset...

It depends on which system it is... Toyota's indirect system is about the best... Light come on ... Check and air up tires as needed... Light go out, simple as that!!!... Now these direct systems that have to know 'which' tire it is and if tires are rotated must be reset to show 'where' each tire is, they do suck! The spare tire gets overlooked most of the time too... It helps to alert the driver of a low tire which otherwise would probably not be noticed!! That's a good thing.. Pros and Cons!!

Sensor may have failed and needs replaced. ( I loathe tire pressure sensors!) Probably the worst engineering concept ever....
