What's the little explamation mark?

It's to the right and underneath the "energy regeneration/efficiency" display at the bottom of the tachometer. I assume it's some sort of warning light that some system is not function (probably the TPM which needs to be swapped out), but there is absolutely no mention of it in either the hard copy or electronic copy of the manual.

It is like a master caution light .....it is a warning that something is wrong........look for the cause using your i-drive vehicle status or another light may come on the dash telling you what is wrong.

It means that your vehicle is going to self destruct in 60 seconds, that you should bail out immediately, and call the insurance company!!! No, just kidding. This is a general warning light. For example, low fuel. There is also a larger "exclamation mark" light that goes on to the left of the smaller one to which you have referred, which is also a warning light. For example, exceeding the speed that you have set the computer to warn you about.

It will go out when you've read the owners manual.

I thought it was a warning to open your sunroof because you are about to be ejected from the car.
