    Is that the oil light, because that is red isn't it? - This is low oil level or low oil pressure.

    Orange oil can on the dash (pixel display), would mean that you are due a service, and the service indicator has not been reset....but this only comes on at start up for about 10 seconds.

    The other thought for oil can on orange pixel display....could it be that your Diesel Particulate Filter is clogged, or your diesel fuel filter needs purging of water.?

    Just thought, that would be the spanner symbol wouldn't it. d'oh!!

    Please clarify....

    Was the oil light on when you brought it?
    how long have you had it before you got it serviced?
    did the light only come on after having it serviced or was it already on?
    Have you checked the oil level?

    In addition to the other suggestions, It could be oil pressure problems caused by using a very wrong grade of engine oil.

    Here's a trick one for you,
    My colleague had a Japanese car, he put a pint of water in the oil filler instead of his radiator header tank. - accidentally of course.

    After running it home that night, he took it to his local garage and had the engine drained and refilled with fresh oil.
    His symptoms were the same as yours from that point...the car ran fine etc, but once it got warm, the oil light came on.

    It was thought that the water had got under the oil on the crank shaft or another part, and caused sufficient wear to affect oil pressure when warm.

    He part ex'd it a week later!!

    hi, i got the car on satdi, driving home the orange oil can light came on, i stopped and checked the dipstick, it was fine, it comes on about 10 mins into journeys. i had the car serviced on tuesday, on the way home, the orange light came on again, i went back the next day, they think its the oil pressure light, and suspect a dodgy sensor, the red light is the low level warning. There is deffo oil in the engine, and a new oil filter. v strange??

    No its not. the red light is low oil pressure. Is it an oil can with a spanner or an oil can with wavey lines under it?

    Oil can with wavey lines below it is the low oil level indicator, if the oil is up to the max mark on the dipstick the sensor could be faulty.
