The Tire Pressure Light comes on when the air in the tire is low. If you have tested the tire pressure and it is normal, but the Tire Pressure Light remains on, you need to have the TPMS system checked with a specific scan tool to determine which sensor is bad, and have it replaced. I would recommend taking the car to the tire shop that has a TPMS scan tool, and have them replace the bad sensor.
