Anyone insight on the following:
TPMS light came on (blink for a minute, then solid). I assumed it was dead sensors. Assumed correctly when Tire Discounters checked them. Said two had dead batteries. I bit the bullet and replaced all four with new units from Tire Discounters. They did the install start to finish. On the first day, the TPMS light came back on the same way (blink for a minute, then solid) just 20 minutes after leaving the shop. Took it back the next day and they tinkered with the system for another hour. Finally said it was finished. Sure enough, light was off and all the readings were correct as the tech showed me on their interface tool. Two days go by and the light comes back on the same way. I haven't been back yet since I went out of town immediately after that. The tire pressures are all okay at 37 psi.
I know I can return the sensors, have regular stems installed, and tape over the warning light, but that's a last resort. I'm almost there. Willing to give it a last shot.

Too much pressure, lower it a few pounds in each corner and see how it behaves.

We tried that the first time around. Incidentally, I had stopped by Tire Discounters again today (was out of town for some time) and one of the techs manually programmed each sensor's ID into the TPMS module. Light has been off all day. Time will tell.

If the warning light comes back on, find out what the TPMS code is. This can be done manually at the TPMS diagnostic connector or with a scan tool. There's always a chance that a new sensor is faulty.
