When the service light is showing, what happens when you press the talking computer button. You know, the one that says " welcome, please wait while the computers checks systems for you" when there is nothing wrong with the car and you press it for curiositys sake, like me
If there is a fault present that it will tell you about (which are a lot), it should tell you again if you press this button.
As said above, check
water and power steering levels and also check for punctures / low pressure in tyres. One other thing to check is the air bag pre-tensior wires under the seats. Check the connectors to these are nice and tight. They have a tendancy to move apart if the seats are moved backwards and forwards alot.
Have you had the car long ?
