I can't remember what it means, but I remember reading it in the owners manual. Check your manual.

    It is supposed to come on for a second or two when you turn on the key. If it remains on after starting then it means that you have a problem with your transmission and you should not drive the vehicle. It should be serviced as soon as possible. If it turns out to be a failed solenoid then you may not have adequate flow of fluid through your transmission. The fluid provides cooling and you can trash the trans in a hurry.
