TPS light and flat tire indication...advice?

Hey guys when i was coming to york tonight to study i got a red light in the middle of my dash indicating a flat, along with a yellow sign popping up.

i already have a bubble in two of my tires (still havent gotten them replaced under warranty) could it be indicating to one of those? also maybe because of the cold weather could it have thrown the psi of my tires off making it to seem like theres a flat?

either way these are still my summers and im going to be swapping my winters on myself tomorrow unless i can find a place to do it

if one of my tires is punctured how long with the rft last?

thanks

Did you check the tire pressures to be sure if any of them are losing air?

I would check the pressures right away to determine if you have a puncture. If not, then it is likely due to the cold temps. Just had the TPMS go off on my gfs VW last night - they were all down by 4 psi due to the cold weather...

Stop speculating and check your tire pressures. There is no bubble-in-your-sidewall warning lamp...
