Thanks for postingDid this start after the tires were replaced? You can try the reset button, I think it's on the lower edge of the dash, it says "set" on it, turn the key off and hold the button in, turn the key on and wait for the light to stop blinking then release it. A lot of times this can also be due to a malfunctioning tire pressure sensor, you'll have to get the diagnostic TPWS tool connected to locate the bad sensor then replace it and then it has to be programmed to the TPWS computer in the car.
