Welcome to the forum

If the service light comes on it can signify a fault which needs cheked out.

Taken from the owners manual

" Service vehicle soon

illuminates yellow.

Illuminates when the engine is running to indicate a fault in the engine or transmission electronics. The electronics switch to an emergency running programme, fuel consumption may be increased and vehicle handling may be impaired.
In some cases, the fault can be eliminated by switching the engine off and back on again. If g illuminates again after restarting the engine, the vehicle may need a service.
Have the cause of the fault eliminated by a workshop."

That's the engine oil quality light. It means you need an oil change.

Usually down to the regens not being completed properly.


Taken from the manual

Engine oil life monitor

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 3 147, the engine oil life monitor needs to be reset. Seek the assistance of a workshop.Edited by: Grumps
