TPM Sensor Fault, need advice!

So I got in my G8 this morning to go for a little drive. I got a message saying my Left Rear tire was low. Nothing was in the tire, just low. So I go to fill it up and after starting the car it said it was still low and on the diagram it showed my Front Left reading 46psi. I immediately got a little mad because I accidentally overfilled the tire completely. For some off reason the TPM Sensors were backwards and both sides. Front Left was Left Rear and the same on the opposite side. So after filling all the tires up I am now running 45psi on all other tires.

Is there a way for me to unload air from these tires so i'm not out a couple hundred dollars if they blow up on me?

You need to relearn the Tire pressure monitoring system so it knows where each tire is located.

You have to add or remove air to do it so make sure you are near a air line before you start,

Thank you! I thought I was going to have to replace them. Didn't see that in the owners manual.

I fixed my tires and the TPM Sensors. Might pick one of those trigger tools just because of the closeout. Appreciate the help as always guys!
