Q: Unknown Light on Dash on 2009 Chevrolet Malibu

I was headed into work this am and noticed a light on in the far left guage. It was yellow and looked like a car with a padlock. I got out and checked/shut all doors and trunk thinking it might be a door/trunk adjar indicator, but it wasn't. Can you tell me what it is and what action may be required by me? Thanks in advance. (Tried to find online user guide first, but no luck)
