Go have the service tire light checked,if tire,s are good and inflated to proper pressure,it may just be a bad sensor doing this,your car computer is getting signal from tire sensor,and it don,t want you to drive it,it will kill the fire to your car,go have it checked.

Take it back to the dealer demand them to fix it, there is usually a 3 day return period on most used cars.
