Hi im kevin the tpms warning is relating to tyre pressures .the warning will activate if a tyre pressure drops too low or there is an issue with one on the sensors .in most cases the warning illuminates because a pressure has dropped too low and the tyre just needs reinflating to the correct pressure .as long as you check tyre pressures and they are at a correct level you are safe to drive with warning light on .if there is an issue with warning after pressures are corrected the car would need to be plugged in to a diagnostic tool to trace the issue further
