Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 2 years ago.

Hello. Run flat indicator is a system that the traction computer uses to compute tire pressure. It reads the speed at each wheel and the wheel that shows a lower speed then the rest is the one that appears to have low pressure. Once this happens the warning goes on the dash in order to reset it you just readjust pressures to the sticker on the drivers side pillar. Once pressures are reset you can start the car. Press the buttons on the left side of the steering wheel that have the squares on it to get to the basic odometer screen. Then press the up and down arrows to get to the tires pressure reset screen. Press the center button in the dash "R" and then press the + to select the reset and you will be set. Hope this information helps. If you need help I can walk you through it :) just let me know. Lou.
