It is the powertrain/4x4/AWD malfunction indicator. It is the second indicator light covered in your owners manual if you have one. It could be a loose electrical conection or bad/short wire or could be a more serious issue, its best to check for any bad connections, wires and if nothing found get it to a shop or dealership for service. Its warning system and means there is a issue, just what exactly needs addressed.

One of the issues this light indicates is you May need to replace electronic throttle module or speed sensor.

Sometimes this light comes to remind you of a service needed soon or now, and may need to clean a part like the throttle body or change oil or a o2 reading was out. Have it scanned for codes. You owners manual should tell you how to deal with it, if it needs reset ect.
