The modules have been resetting for some reason to a high value. This means the tire pressure sensor looks for a pressure that is too high and sets off the warning light.

The dealer should fix it but you can also fix it yourself. I'm not sure exactly what the cause is but you fix it yourself and the problem comes back, the dealer fix should be permanent.

Also shown is how to disable the TPMS system - don't do this if it's not legal where you live or operate the vehicle. All responsibility from knowingly disabling the system is on the person who does it. It's shown only for off road use. One example is if you have a set of track wheels/tires without the sensors in them. The easier option is to just ignore the light if you're using a set of off road wheels/tires.
