Default what does this light mean?

I don't have the manual on me at the moment, but on my '96 camry,
there's a light to the left of the Airbag light, that looks like a car
with the rear lights lit.

It comes on during startup, only after the Airbag light goes out.

What does this yellow light mean?

Does it come when you put your foot on the brake to change gears? If
so, it means that one of your brake lights is out. Make sure when you
are checking to see which one it is that you check the raised center
brake light.

After searching the web a bit, I think they might be the rear brake
lights too, but no the light is on regardless of whether I put my foot
on the brake or not.

Oh well... I'll have my wife step on the brake when I go home for
lunchbreak...

Yup. That was it! Left light is burnt out.

So... do I get at the bulb from inside the trunk?

Yep, you pull the trunk lining away and you will see where the bulbs are.

Find the owner's manual.
The plastic enclosure is removed as a unit from the outside

Please read your owner's manual. it explains it clearly, but for those
without an owner's manual:

1) The light should come on when you turn the key to ON and then it
should go out. This is a test to ensure that the indicator light bulb
is not burned out.

2) Turn the lights on. If the warning light comes on, you have a
burned out tail light (Not brake light)

3) Step on the brakes. If the warning light comes on now, you have a
burned out brake light. This could include the high center brake
light.

If you still can not find the light that is out, you may have a dirty
or corroded connection in one of your rear lighting circuits.

Good Luck,

Good advice, mirrors what happened to my Camry.
