The maintenance light is pre-programmed to come on at intervals of every 5,000 miles. This is the light telling you it's time for an Oil Change. If you've recently had an oil change, it's possible the Tech did not reset the light. If not, have the oil changed and reset the light. The light should be reset after every oil change to keep the oil life monitor in sync with the oil change schedule. Use this procedure to rest the light:

If the system fails to reset, the light will continue flashing.
The other light is the Low Tire Pressure warning light. Check the pressure in all of the tires and make sure they are correct. If the tire pressues are correct, then most commonly, this will be a fault Pressure Sensor. These sensors are inside the tire as part of the valve stem assembly. You will need to find a shop that has access to a scan-tool that can read these sensor's outputs to find the faulty one.
Tire Pressure Warning Light:When the light comes on low tire inflation pressure is detected. Adjust tire pressure including the spare if it is equipped with a TPMS transmitter.The light should go off within a few minutes after the tire pressure is adjusted.Rotating tires may require the system to be initialized if the front and rear tires have different pressure specifications
