Sensor light should be off if the tires are all properly inflated. Perhaps you have a defective sensor. Take it to the dealership and get it checked.

You can reset the tire pressure monitor by pressing the unlock and lock on your keys for abut five seconds while your car is set to on but the engine isn't running. Then you add or take away are in the front left tire until the car horn beeps. Move to the front right tire and do the same thing until the horn beeps. Then to the right rear and lastly the left rear. All will beep when the car has recognized the tires pressure sensor. if done correctly the horn will beep twice on the last tire letting you know you have reset the monitor
