Have you tried disconnecting the battery and seeing if the light still comes on?

Probably the TPMS light. Did you have TPMS installed on your new wheels?

you don't or maybe you do have tpms in your aftermarket wheels. you need to get it reprogrammed. you can do by calling around tire shops and ask them if they can reprogram your tpms.

Disconnecting the battery should work if you have TPMS in them.

TPMS has nothing to do with the lights the OP is reporting. The best thing for him to do is plug in an OBD scanner and check the codes. Make note of them and then clear them and see if the lights reappear. Sounds like he is in limp mode.

Only if he took the tpms from original wheels and put on the new ones. If he buy new tpms, he will need to get them programed. Any Discount Tire offer it for free

WOW, talk about no explaining an issue properly! Why would you need an NRG Hub? Don't you think it would have been a good idea to lay out all the facts upfront? Steering wheel, not wheels on ground

Did you try putting the stock steering wheel back on and see if the lights goes off?
