    Default Oil light on dash and coolant too...

    Story... 4 days ago, driving to pick cousin up from work cos he had flat tyre day before, then lost locking nut key! Anyways, on way to pick him up, coolant light on dash appeared, i thought "urgghhh! What now!"

    Upon arriving, while waiting for him to appear, thought i see what broke, looked under car see for coolant leak location, nothing... Dry as bone.
    Opened bonnet, coolant level exact same level, pipes holding good strong pressure.

    No idea why it appeared... After he arrived, started car. Coolant light gone. All was fine.


    This morning... On way to college meeting 30 minutes away, about 10 minutes before my end point, oil light on dash appeared. Drove slower than normal, arrived and same story as coolant, checked under car, spotless, oil level, exact same level. (After i returned 1 hour later inspecting the level with dip)
    Started up, alls well as usual.


    Why did they appear when nout was wrong??? Its the first time it did that!!

    Do you mean the "oil can symbol" ? If you did, it's the service advice to advise you that it's due ?

    Oil can with a line under it.


    Oil change with new filter (whole servicing) last month. I even reset oil life to 100% on the computer.

    Coolant new when new thermostat changed before christmas

    Hope this helps.

    Need to look in the handbook. I'm sure that is a service warning
