I find the sensors handy to have. They alerted me once to a slow leak around a valve, and I also use then to check pressures once in awhile - they normally drop slightly over time. Changed the sender batteries after about 8 years and no issues.
Better than my BMW which tells you that you have a low tire but no details as to which one.

|Black Sheep||From all of the comments I take it that the 2007 doesn't have access to individual tire pressures. Can the DIC software be upgraded to have this information available?|

To add, I believe you need to go in order, not just pick a tire.
The order is:

|JohnWR||Excellent. Glad you figured it out.|

|Moosebreath||All done and fixed the TPMS readout. I'm sure a lot of you know how to reset the tire sensors after rotation but for those that don't, let me impress you with my new knowledge. Insert key into ignition. Light up the dashboard and access the TPMS readout on the DIS. It doesn't matter whether it displays front or rear tire pressure as long as you are there. Take your fob press lock and unlock at the same time and hold until the horn chirps twice. Pick a tire and let a few pounds out. I held mine open maybe 3 or 4 seconds then wait about 5 to 10 seconds. The horn will chirp once. That wheel is done. Repeat that 3 more times and good to go. Your welcome!|

The tire sensors have to be taught to the car for it to know which one is which. It appears that your tires were rotated without this being re-done.
Who rotated your tires? There is a procedure that you can follow to reteach them yourself, but if someone else did the rotation I would go back and make them do it.
Or you can leave them as they are. It doesn't actually hurt anything beyond not knowing which is low. Since I still check them manually with a tire gauge it wouldn't bother me.
