Your 2006 has tire pressure monitoring via the rotational speed of the wheels using the ABS sensors (called FTM instead of TPMS). FTM is now used in Canadian and other country cars, as opposed to the US TPMS system. It's now reporting that one wheel is rotating at a different speed than the other 3.

1 ) Have you checked all 4 tire pressures?

2 ) There is a reset procedure in the manual and online. Here's the FTM reset procedure for a 2009, which should be the same as the one for your 2006. Seriously, before just resetting it using this procedure, go look at all 4 tire pressures.
