Tire Pressure Warning

ever since i had my 1200 miles service done, the tire pressure monitoring alarm kept going off. I took it back to the dealership to had it reset about 3 times on the same day, but it still keeps going off. I checked the tire pressure on all 4 tires and they are all evenly distributed. I even tried to reset it myself, but still no luck. Can anyone offer any input???

Is it going off after several hours of driving?

Are you resetting it per the instructions in the manual?

I reset it according to the manual and the way the foreman did (press it until the yellow light come up then start the car), but the red light comes up right after. I even tried to press it only until the red light disappears (before the yellow light comes up), but after I drive it for a couple minutes, it goes off again.

That's not the correct procedure per my 2004 manual.

1) Start car (do not start driving)
2) Push button until Yellow light comes on for a few seconds
3) Drive for several miles
