I have a 2012 Jeep compass. The warning light came on for a tire with low pressure. Took it in to a tire shop the guy said sensors are all fine and put air into low tire. He said once I drove around awhile the light should go off. Well after driving most of the day the chime still comes on the the light is still there.

Several times I've got lucky losing those TPMS warnings by doing a manual reset, dropping all tyres to or below 1.7bar or 25psi, driving around a bit when all 4 started blinking. Then air filling all 4 of them and doing some more driving around ~12km and usually warnings are gone.
Those TMPS sensors are just too sensitive for SUV type of vehicles imo. It's a pain in the as* constantly to readjust them and completely unreliable in -10C or more winter conditions.
The good old rule, check your tires pressure while filling gas and you don't need to trust TMPS at all.

I had a similar issue. Verified tyre pressures were ok. Took it to my mechanic that has a specialised diagnostic tool for tpm sensors and the sensors were bad. This is a 2016 latitude 4x4. They called Jeep to see if they could replace under warranty and Jeep said no. New sensors in and no issues since.
