Was out ready to take a shot of the light when a neighbour came out and had a look. According to him his daughters car had the same light and it means that the car is not happy with the oil and wants it changed. It is being added to all late 2006/07 handbooks as it was missed from the earlier ones.
That's according to Renault Croydon, I had asked Wilsons of Epsom and they didn't know.
So now I am in for an oil change after 7000m & 9 months, and I thought most oil changes were getting further apart.

I had a change oil now message on my 2006 scenic when it was only 9 month old (or so I thought), apparently the service spanner and message are time stamped as well as milage, so for example if the car is due a service at 12 months or 12000 miles the lights will appear. The car was probably built 3 months before you thought it was.

Problem solved and to be honest Renault service intervals are a bit long.

hi, if my memory serves me right i think its means you need to change your oil . im sure on my computerised dash it today states 15,000 miles until i need to (same sign as you describe) - meaning i need to change my oil in 15,000 miles time

hope this helps
