Turn the ignition to run. Within three seconds push the gas pedal to the floor three times. Turn the key to off, and then start the car. The light should flash three times signifying that it reset. If it does not, try repeating the process, but instead of turning it to off after stepping on the pedal, just start the car.

the warning lamp is a oil change indicator to turn it off, remove the little rubber plug on the lh side of instrument panel switch ignition on insert a suitable object ie. cocktail stick press the button inside the light should go off, change the engine oil and filter if you have not all ready done so. hope this helps,
I believe it means that your car is due for an oil change. Your cars computer is programmed to turn that light on every so many miles to alert you and then after you change to oil there is a procedure to reset it. You owners manual should tell you this information of what the light means and how to reset it. If you do not have the manual call your local dealer and ask the service dept. what it means for sure and they should tell you over the phone and if it's a good dealer they will tell you how to reset it.
TURN THE IGNITION KEY TO RUN WITH THE ENGINE OFF.FULLY PRESS AND RELEASE THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL THREE TIMES WITH IN FIVE SECONDS.YOU HAVE TO DO THIS MORE THAN ONE TIME.ITS NOT GOING TO RESET FIRST TRY BUT DO THIS PROCEDURE.UNTIL THE CHANGE ENGINE OIL LIGHT WILL FLASH WHILE THE SYSTEM IS RESETTING.TURN THE KEY TO OFF.WAIT A FEW SECONDS.START CAR UP TO SEE IF CHANGE OIL LIGHT COME BACK ON.IF YES YOU HAVE TO TRY THE RESET PROCEDURE AGAIN.
It's basically a type of oil change life/ idiot lamp that will come on briefly after 4K just after startup and then stay on steady after 5K reached after reset procedure done after each oil change.
The explanation of it's purpose and the reset procedure should be covered in your owner's manual.
I remember resetting some Toyota maint req lamp by holding in the trip reset button ,turning on the ignition key ,the mileage indicator appears as a row of flashing segments that gradually disappear and your done.
If that doesn't work ,try releasing the trip switch momentarily,just after turning the key to run position and then redepress and hold the trip reset button in (before the cluster completes it's lamp prove out)
