TPMS light won't reset

TPMS light was on in the morning. Took car to Big O tire and they filled all 4 tires with nitrogen to 35 psi from 30 psi. Thought it was odd that they were all reading 30 psi but so be it. TPMS light is still on. Disconnected battery and waited 10 minutes. TPMS light still on as well as 4x4 and brake light. My Creator shows no codes. Any ideas as to what to do next?

Did you follow the directions in the owners manual to reset the sensors?

Are you sure there isn't a puncture in one of the tires?

Use the button on the dash.

What percent nitrogen did they fill the tires with?

In my haste to try a quick fix I forgot about the TPMS reset button staring me in the face. I was getting ready for my bi-annual lumbar epidural and I wasn't focused on the X3. Big O wheeled over a nitrogen machine so I don't know the percentage of gas used.

The compressor in my garage pumps out 79% nitrogen.
