its a 5000 mile counter, goes yellow then red when you need to change the oil, to reset just push the slot with your key.

there should be a little slot next to it on your cluster, your key fits in it (or any other simaler sized material) to reset the 5000 mile counter

no no reason to worry, its not hooked up to anything important, the one next to the trunk and gas levers are to lock them so anyone breaking into your car cant open them.

look at the cluster, find the little maintenance light, right beside it is a little slot, the size to stick your key into, that litttle slot, if key is inserted, no turning required, will reset your 5000 mile counter, the 5000 mile counter is only that, just a counter. now, the key hole next to the trunk release and gas tank release is a lock to prevent inadvertent opening of the trunk and gas tank. the 2 key holes are non related. any questions? if i had a picture id post it but im out of town.

The key slot beside the trunk release is there to lock your trunk when you have to let someone else use your car. You just lock it with your master key and then give them the valet key. They can drive the car but they cant get into your trunk.
Talks about it in the owners manual
