Have you tried reading in your owner's manual? There should be a fairly simple reset procedure. I have to reset the one on my wife's van periodically.

You did check your tires right?

Easy Fix

The easiest way I've found is to simply add air. The warning light is there for a reason. Add air to the low tire and the light will go out automatically next time you start the car.

Now if you're talking about not having TPMS sensors in your tires and you want to turn the light off, that's a whole different story...

On my TC [see left column] the front tires are 36psi back 49 psi. When I rotate tires it takes about 40 miles before the low tire light comes on. THEN at next rotation, the light goes off [cannot tell how you when the light goes off]

I bet if you check in your owner's manual it will say that every time your tires are rotated you need to calibrate your car's computer again. I'm guessing it's looking for X tire at Y location, but since you rotated them, it's no longer there. Thus the error. But that's just a guess.
