    Question What does "SERV" light mean??

    Hi

    Just want to make sure that this is nothing serious.. But there is a light on my dash thats come on that says "SERV" been on for a couple of weeks... I just wondered if anyone can tell me what it means?

    Im guessing its the car telling me it needs a service, but that was done about 2500 miles ago.

    Do I have to bring the car to a Renault garage or can anyone turn that off?


    Cheers.

    The SERv light only comes on when there a problme nothing to do with services.

    Usualy accompanied with another light if not check oil.

    It need to be plugged inot the Renault computer realy for the fault to be found.

    It has been covered many times before.

    Give the wires a wiggle under your passneger seat. Normally comes on with the airbag light and it's a common fault.

    Under the passanger and drivers seat, you cant miss them when you look under there. My old car went back to renault to have a new plug fitted, which was a much better fit.

    Never had a problem after that.

    No if the light is on all airbags a disengaged, so if in a crash non will go off.

    Its not a major problem it seems that the plugs can work themselves loose over time and just need to be checked every so often.

    I dont have that problem any more, but that is down to the Recaros which dont have the airbags fitted. LOL

    Mine came on when my oil level dropped, might be worth checking your oil level as well....

    The plugs a poor design the answer has been posted many times before but the airbags light should also throw the airbag light not just the serv one

    Fix is stated here. http://www.cliosport.net/forum/showthread.php?t=108607

    The airbags will come on even if the lights on though.
