Except the OP's icon doesn't seem to be there.

The "interlocked S" symbol is usually a time-based service check, which is confirmed by the date showing below the icon. So, something wanted to be checked in May of 2014. Since the icon is showing something blowing out of the exhaust, I would guess that this is a time-based emission system check.

It signifies that a state or local emissions check is due. It sounds like your car may have been titled in suburban MD which has such a requirement every two years. So if your jurisdiction does not require the check, simply set the date ahead for 20 years or so and the warning will disappear - your manual explains how under "Service Requirements".

Thanks for all replies. Relevant or not. But Tom K. wins as the emissions are due in the DC area.
