The only way to get the light to turn off is make sure pressure is correct on all tires. If the light continues to stay on it will be a sensor problem.

if its just a Low pressure indicator (!) then just add air up to 34psi in all the tires and drive the car for a bit and it should go back off..if its the TPMS light then there is a mechanical problem wit the sensors or something else

unfortunately the only way to reset the TPMS light is to go to a dealer.
if its only the low tire pressure light that is on make sure the tires have the peoper amount of air. if it stays on it will need to go to a dealer to get the TPMS monitors re calibrated.

Set the tires at 32 PSI. Check for nails in all 4 tires. If there are no nails found and light is still on after you have at least hit 25 mph then you will need to reset the Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor. Bleed the air pressure from the tires to at least 18 psi. It's gotta bleed at least 3 psi within 15 seconds for the sensor to reset itself. Easier and quicker way to reset them is to buy a tire valve remover to let all the air out of the four tires and then refill them. Or you can always take it to a dealer to do what I explained. Hope that helps
