When I returned to my office I went through the process to reset the indicator; again with no luck;it is still lit. Any ideas?
The procedure you should use is this:

Got to the monitor system and click once to make the notification disappear. Next, click and HOLD until the item until a check marked [box] appears... this should now be the benchmark for the PSI on your tires and your notification shouldn't reappear unless you have something wrong with the sensor or rapid loss of pressure (or standard low tire).
Try to find a tutorial on YouTube...
If you've done exactly this, i would go to a BMW specialist (or autozone) for a system error check and see what the underlying problem is...
