Replacement AC Delco sensors are around $30-$40.
If you have a garage with a concrete floor get one of the Chinese manual tire changers and Chinese bead breaker.
I have four anchors in the garage floor that I use to bolt mine down. I modified the bead breaker to use the same anchors as the tire changer. I've made several other modifications to the changer and bead breaker. They aren't a finished product but they are good kits just like many other Chinese tools.
I can break the bead down, replace the sensor, and air a tire back up in about 1/2 hour. Don't even need to pull the tire to do a TPMS sensor.

It's okay if you don't mind the light being on, but if you decide to fix it, you should be able to do it for well under 100 bucks.
Aside: I'm beginning to wonder if there are too many things being monitored by the computers. Before too long, there will be a CYP light to remind you to check your pants after the system detects a high level of H2S

My old Impala, 2012 LTZ (see below) had the tire pressure light come on while I was driving the car on the interstate. Had no vibrations or pulling (quick check showed the front drivers tire pressure blank) so I continued to my destination. Once stopped I checked the pressure with a manual pressure gauge and it was at 35 PSI. After doing some digging and investigating it turned out to be a dead battery in the sensor inside the tire. Was going to cost over a hundred bucks to fix (while having new tires installed) so I opted to just manually check my tire pressures every so often.
Anyway, good thread with some great information! Thanks to all for your inputs.

For some reason I recall them wanting to charge around $90 per tire and I was not prepared to spend that much so I've been dealing with the light.
Thanks for the info, I am going to check with them again on their pricing.

I think I've tried letting the air out or adding air to relearn the positions, didn't work or I could've been doing something wrong as I was a little younger and less patient. This is for my 07'.
I have another question, not trying to hijack the thread but does anyone know if discount tires will install tire pressure sensors that you brought yourself? Or do will they only install the ones you buy from them? I could call them and ask but just thought I ask here first.
If that tool is only $18 I see one in my near future, I am finally getting tired of the TPMS light in my car lol.

Damn, is that tool cheap nowadays!! I got mine about a year ago (maybe 2) and I think it was like $80!! It's the Kent Moore-branded one, but still!!
The one linked to above is $18.99!! :-)

You need a tool to relearn new style TPMS system. This is about as cheap as Ive found them:
Amazon.com: KINGBOLEN EL 50448 Automotive Tire Pressure Reset Car Vehicle Auto Monitor Sensor TPMS Activation Tool for GM EL-50448: Automotive
Additionally, your new wheels may have A: failed sensors, or B: incorrect frequency sensors that arent compatible with your car. Theres no way to know without programming via this tool and the procedure in your owners manual
