I believe this is the tire pressure symbol...

So I have this lit up in my car, I believe it is the tire pressure symbol, it says inactive, what do i need to do to fix this. It is off now, but it has been popping on and off the last two days...

You probably have one or more sensors that have gone bad or are going bad. Probably have to get the sensors replaced the next time you replace your tires (or earlier if you don't mind paying to dismount and mount your tires)

Try going into the I Drive menu and recalibrating the tire pressure. the TPMS does not monitor a specific tire pressure. It is simply calibrated to the pressure you have at the time you reset it. So for example, if it were calibrated when tires were 15psi over inflated, then properly adjusting your tires would trigger the TPMS sensor.

Good Luck
