Try 'resetting ECU' Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery and leave if possible for a couple hours :). If that doesn't work will need to go on a diag unfortunaltly :(.

That is wierd, have you contacted the garage who did it for you originally? They might reset it for free, or see whats causing it to come back on.

what car you got? punto 03 plate? if so might be running ok but fault in the EOBD system which you have to get sorted......light will go out by itself after 3 EOBD drive cycles but if not then fault is still there.
