Check your service manual to see what this light means. It's usually the light that comes on to let you know that you are due for an oil change or service of some kind. This "light" is controlled by mileage and is set to come on according to how many miles the manufacturer puts in for it to come on, ie every 7500mi. When you take the vehicle in for service they will re-set it.
