Go to Autozone and grab a portable tire pressure gauge.
When TPM goes off, check pressure on each tire and re-fill the ones that are low.
Then the error symbol will be turned off.
I have an iDrive on mine so it tells me which tire is low but since my gf's Audi doesn't have a Navi, I do what I listed above.

Hi,
You can reset initialize the system through the instrument cluster (driver information). First set / check your tire pressure. Once you know they are right use the procedure listed here.
