service light complications

First things first i have read the manufacturers handbook and there's not a lot of info about this light.

Had no problems with this light in the past. The car has recently been for an MOT and full service.

About a week or so after picking it up from the garage the two lights come on. It's had an oil and filter change and i've checked and the oil is full.

Can i just add that on the mileage counter it's supposed to go to 800miles remaining and a message oil change soon should appear (i think). that never happened as it went for a service when it had approx 1500miles left.
If the garage forgot to reset the meter then this light would appear after another 1500 miles - not randomly?

so the meter read -1500 >
all of a sudden a week after the service it says ----- >
not 00000 >

Do you know what could be causing this light to appear? Based on my circumstances whats the most likely cause?
When i start the car the message OIL OK appears- as it always has. but this light remains on.

I have attached a photo of the light.
I drive a 2007 mk3 clio expression.

Re: service light complications

Hi Alex, have you checked the coolant level?

If the car has just been serviced, it could be that the garage did not replace something properly or just a wear and tear issue somewhere.

Re: service light complications

coolant level is at maximum. im guessing they topped it up..

Could incorrect oil type cause this ?

I dont want to just reset it lol if its a problem that could get worse.
if i take it back ive got a funny feeling they will just reset it anyway

Re: service light complications

From your description it sounds like you just need to top the oil up a bit. Or at worst change the oil level sensor. Ours does it when parked on a slope & the oil is a bit low.
