Dashboard Light Oil Can & Spanner

Hi All

Had a light come on the dash, picture of an oil can and spanner. Stays on for a short while then seems to go off.

Anyone know what this is, could this be the service light ? Seems to be happening when I start the car Richy

Engine oil needs changing.

This is from the 2013 OM - where 'C' is meant to be the oilcan/spanner icon, which won't copy and paste:

Change engine oil
Engine oil life monitor
C illuminates yellow.
When the engine is started, C
illuminates briefly. If it does not
illuminate, seek the assistance of a
workshop.
The engine oil life monitor lets you
know when to change the oil. Control
indicator C illuminates to indicate
that engine oil life has been
diminished and the oil needs
changing.
Based on driving conditions, the
interval at which an oil change will be
indicated can vary considerably.
Change oil within 600 miles. Engine
power may be decreased.
Once the engine oil has been
changed 3 151, the engine oil life
monitor needs to be reset. Seek the
assistance of a workshop.

Ok Thanks Dulac

I'll see to this, I do have a Maxi service reset tool, I'll attempt a reset once I have changed the oil. I'll Let you know how I get on.

Cheers Richard

Hi Guys

A Bit strange, now have the oil and filter ready to change but the light now longer comes on and hasn't done since I got back from holiday.

Is this normal for a service light to stop coming on when you start the car.
