Before you turn out the light you should have a code read carried out just to make sure nothing sinister is going on with the management system.
If the car is running ok then the code will probably either pertian to the O2 sensor, the EVAP system, or a drop in catalytic efficiency, but this isn't set in stone, just the most popular scenarios.
Very best regards

SOURCE: TPMS light on 2006 Kia Sportage
Your Tire Pressure Management System is extremely sensitive. Some makes are known to trip with just 5-8 psi. difference. Have the pressure checked again on all tires including the spare. Make sure the spare is up to proper inflation. VERY important. It is possible that the sensor inside the tire as well as any wiring associated with the system under the wheel wells could have been damaged. Start by making sure the pressures are all within system range. The owners manual will stipulate this and all info you may need to troubleshoot on your own. good luck.

Your tire pressure is monitored by a device known as a TPMS sensor.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System is an integral part of your tire that tends to wear with age.
You need to take your vehicle to a reliable shop (I recommend Discount Tire) to have the TPMS sensor in the defective tire replaced. It's simple, and inexpensive.
I have used Discount Tire's services for almost 20 years, and have never been disappointed with their service.

check not only the tires on the car, check the level on the spare tire to, cause some of those have the sensors also... most cars will reset the light once you have the pressures right and drive on the tires a few miles to reset the light.... hope this helps you..

you have sensors in each tire that warns you of lower tire pressure just put some air in your tires to specs and the light should go out.
