Firestone Hmmmmmm. Well the reset button is located just under the dash to the left of the steering column, hold for a few seconds and the light should go out. Hopefuly the firestone tech won't tell you your brakes need greasing the next time you go in for service, haha. Oh, I do beleive your tire pressure should be 29 psi. But, you can check your owners manual for correct pressures. It sould also tell you where the reset button is also. That should FixYa good luck.

turn ignition to "on"; set your odomoter trip meter display to trip "A" turn off the ignition; hold down trip reset button while turning ignition back to "on" position; hold the button for around five more seconds until it shows a full display of zeroes (ex. "00000000") light should procede to turn off

Welcome to FixYa.
Note that the SPARE tire is also monitored. Reset the spare tire pressure, and then press the reset buttoen. You should be ok then.

Since you have such a new vehicle you should have a owners manual. The instructions to reset are in the manual. If not you should get one from the dealership, probably for free. That manual will give you other reset procedures you are going to need in the future.

There are two ways to reset the indicator light - the first is to hold down the button (hidden under the dashboard next to the steering column) until the light goes out. That's a reset.
There's also a reactivation, you hold the button until the light flashes three times and then release, that's for use after a wheel is changed, etc. Make sure they have done the reactivation, not just the reset.
If that doesn't work, have them check the technical service bulletins.
Everyone gets confused on this. I see it all the time. Good luck and thank you for using Fixya
The Highlander uses an Indirect Tire Pressure Monitoring System versus Direct type.
There is NO transponder in the air valve. The H/L uses a plain tire old valve. Thus, there is no PSI reading done by this Indirect Type System.
It uses the ABS speed sensors to calculate differences of tire rotational speed among the Four rolling tires(the Spare IS NOT included).
When the spare tire is put on, say when yu get a flat tire, the TPMS button must be pressed. (Recalibrated)
Direct Type TPMS costs more for Toyota and only puts it on select models. i.e. the Land Cruiser...
But for Toyota, the Indirect System meets DOT's TPMS mandated minimum Requirements for 2007 vehicles.
The Direct type system uses a transponder/PSI reader type Air Valve on each tire(including the Spare). Each of the 5 tires send a reading of the PSI to the reciever in the Vehicles TPMS ECU.
It has a small battery and is self powered. Battery must be replaced when yu replace your tires. It must be carefully mounted. Each tire has it's owner frequency channel and ID. for it to be recognized by the ECU.
This system is more precise. But has it's own set problems as a result.
It is the original design TPMS going back to the 1980's introduced with the Corvette and the Runflat Tire option.
