Hello, my name is***** it continues to give you this message it is because the tire pressure sensor in the tire that burst more than likely has failed. When a tire fails like this is causes damage to the sensor. I would have the sensor replaced and then it needs to be programmed to the vehicle with a scan tool. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance please let me know.
