Mystery Service warning light
Recently purchased a Bipper Tepee and I have a mystery Service warning light issue.
On starting the car a message would come up on the dash saying "right brake light problem" or something similar and then it would disappear. On inspection one brake light was not working.
On driving a short distance the Service Warning (orange triangle) light would come on. The manual says this is a Major Fault and should be taken to a dealer ASAP.
A quick look under the car also showed some excess oil on the engine underside.
At my local garage they took the sump cover off to inspect the leak and replaced a bake light bulb.
Mysteriously the Service Warning light has gone out now.
Could replacing the brake light or removing the sump cover cause the Service Warning light to go off or do I possibly have a mystery problem?
I still need to get the oil leak fixed, but do I get a full diagnosis on the Service Warning light cause?

It's possible that whatever they did after removing the sump has cleared whatever was causing the warning lamp to illuminate. Could possibly have been low oil pressure because the oil pickup was blocked for instance. Alternately, they could simply have connected their diagnostics and cleared the fault which would turn off the warning until next time an ecu flags an error.
