I think it is for your rear trunk lid some cars refer to this as the deck lid. Close your trunk and see if this resolves

2002 Chrysler Sebring won't start. When I turned it off last night, a light came on in the mileage readout that said "deck"

i have a 2002 Chrysler Sebring and i have this issue where the car just dies out of nowhere once started.So i replaced the battery twice within a 3week period and yet periodically does the same thing. So then i took the car to the shop wanted to figure out the problem because i would thought it would be the Alternator but turned out not to be, what might be the problem. Also when this word "DECK" pops up on my mileages reading that's when it seem to start failing to start. What does the word "deck" mean if anyone has encountered it before?

Maintenance Required light came on & stayed on after oil change

I get many calls a week for this procedure...
This is really easy! Follow these directions:

Turn the key ON

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "ODO" and the total mileage traveled. If it is on "Trip A" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "ODO", and the total miles traveled.

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it in.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON

Observe the Odometer display. The total mileage traveled will disappear, and you will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, the total mileage traveled will redisplay.

Release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change.
If you do NOT see the dashes, followed by the 5 zeros, start the entire procedure again, but start with the odometer set to TRIP "A". Some vehicles use Trip A instead of the ODO.

You do NOT START the vehicle at any time during the reset procedure.
If the engine starts, the procedure will not reset.

The speed'o meter is showing a "tool" sign

the "tool " is refering to service work. Could be fuel related but not really the fuel filter. do you have plenty of miles between services. otherwise may be showing you that your service is due. and mileage will suffer. I am assuming you have no loss of power? No power loss no fuel filter problem. check when the next service should be done and check your air filter. another big thing that trips sensors and leads to poor mileage.

Speedometer has incorrect mileage

U can't reset the mileage, there is no way to do this because the movement is electronic, u can buy a new speedo, but that is very expensive.
