RIght, so I would add a lb or 2 more to each tire to keep the light from coming on.

That light isn't supposed to come on unless there's a significant difference in tire pressures. Not just a couple of pounds. You may have a sensor that has a low battery. If it's under warranty, I'd get it looked at by the dealer.
