What was the pressure reading on the tires?  If your Traverse has the Driver's Information Center (DIC), then your TPMS will transmit the pressures to the DIC.  If they are low; just fill them.  I would also double check the pressures with a pencil type gauge just to be sure.

All of this info is located in your owner's manual as well

have your tires been rotated?

Im wondering if they were-- and they did not reset the tire locations.

So you may be filling the wrong tire....
I would also use a hand held gauge and check pressure in all tires to verify.

(I rotated my tires and did not reset the tire locations--But Im aware of where the tires went- so if it shows a low pressure on the left rear-- I know its actually the right front)

Yes- the procedure is in the manual.
do you have the DIC? and what pressured are you seeing...

Some owners will get the message in the mornings when the cold night makes the air in the tires drop in pressure...
so they may get the message.
once the tires warm up the message goes away because they have now passed the minimum tire pressure.
You should really be checking the tire pressure in the morning- when the tires are cold.
on the door is a decal that shows what tire pressure they should be at when cold.
Cold being- morning-- and not having been driven too long.

It won't hurt to add "a little".  But keep in mind, that air and nitrogen expand at different rates, so the more air in the tire, the more it will expand with heat.  Meaning, if your front tires are both nitrogen filled and one goes flat and you only have access to air to fill the tire with, your vehicle MAY pull to one side as the tires warm up.  It is then best to get the air replaced with nitrogen as soon as possible.

rebarrios  -- I do have the DIC .I  have the pressue  at 36.I had the dealer put in 38 so I could work my way down to 36.The DIC is says 36 in the morning when cold.It was that way in the winter also.I mean at 10 below also.Now during the summer it is at 37 ,with the nitrogen and only goes up to 38 up here and in Altanta.Not much of a change with Nitrogen that I have seen.I watch the pressure pretty close ,as with my 40 Allegro Bus ,that need 115 in them.I use a digntal gauge for that also.I also use a heat sensor gut when I stop and check temps.
