Keep taking it back to the dealer until the fix it or give you a new car. Not that it's an immediate safety issue, it's just something that's supposed to be functioning properly. They have to address it because cars are legally required to have TPMS systems for safety. If a safety mehanism fails in your car, you can claim it is a safety issue. If you keep having problems with the TPMS light, you'll eventually ignore it. Then one day you'll have a tire going flat and you wouldn't know it.

I assume you have checked the tires to make sure one is not low of pressure. Also have you checked the pressure in the spare tire? It may be low which would also trigger the light. If you were just seeing this ! then if would mean a tire is low of pressure. But seeing TPMS may mean there is a problem with one of the sensors in the tire. It could have been damaged when you had the new tires installed but it would be hard to prove that after 2 months. More than likely one of the sensors has gone bad. Try putting 5 pounds more air in the tire than is listed on the placard or your owner's manual and then letting it back out to the correct pressure. If the light still stays on then you have a sensor problem. The sensor is warrantied for 5 years or 60,000 miles unless it was damaged during the installation of the tires. The dealer can connect the ECU to their computer and tell exactly what is wrong. If all it requires is a reset then your owner's manual will list how it is done, but I do think that resetting the light will work. It will likely just come back on. If all else fails you may have to take it to your dealer for repair. But know that driving the vehicle with the light on if you know for sure that all tires have the proper pressure will do no harm at all. It is just a warning light for low pressure and if you do not have low pressure then no harm. Of course you will have to continually look at that light unless you cover it with a piece of black tape. Just a suggestion if you do not want to deal with it at this time. Just make darn sure the tires have the correct pressure as listed on the placard on the driver's door or in the owner's manual. Low tire pressure can be very dangerous and also will wear out your tires prematurely.
