When the air pressure falls below a certain level it will register. Also, if it falls by a certain amount, it can as well. Example: below 20 lbs, or down by 10 lbs.

Make sure the air pressure is the same in all tires using a good tire gauge then drive it for a few blocks and the light should go off.
