  Well, the OP doesn't do it himself, but he has the rental company do
it - it's their car.  I go into more detail elsewhere in the thread.

It's a rental. The light means time for service interval. (nothing else.)
Not really your job. And the fact that the light came on doesn't
neccesarilly mean the job was not already done, it may have been done and
the mechanic at the rental place had no clue how to reset the light. When
you take it back let them deal with it. (Unless you plan on driving way over
the 5000 mile mark.) This is why I would never buy a car from a rental
fleet, no telling how good a job the rental company did taking care of the
car. But really just let the light stay on, it's not your job to keep up on
the maintanence.

That light comes on every 5000 miles to remind you that you are due for
an oil change and tire rotation.  It's the *real* idiot light (for
people who can't remember to change their oil without a light).
Don't worry about it.
