Low tire pressure indicator wont turn off

is there something I'm missing to turn off the low tire pressure indicator? I put air in my tires up to 44psi (even to 45psi) and checked with 2 separate PSI gauges to make sure it was accurate. the light is still on! Is this because I don't have the stock tires on the vehicle?

It common to overlook the spare tire, check it first....

Yup has to be the spare, just checked it and it is at like 25psi, and I noticed 2 plugs in the tire so they probably leak a little.

I failed to thoroughly inspect them when I bought the car

Oh well the car is about to go into storage for a year, I'll buy all 5 new tires when I return, lesson learned thanks!
