    it means the car has had a minor fault in the last 25 restarts.. but not one that needs immediate attention at VX..

    if it was a 'live' fault the light would stay on permanently..

    to get the car back to normal you could do an ECU reset by disconnecting the battery for 15 mins to reset it bck to the factory defaults.
