    Does the light flash or stay steady, I suspect its the immobiliser if it flashes, if it stays steady it may simply be the test lights as the car starts, hard to say but sounds like the garage put the motor on diagnostics, may be worth trying the paperclip test (do a quick search) to see if there is an eml error stored.

    instead of paying a garage to read the fault code you can do the pedal test to work it out yourself, keys in ignition (dont turn yet), feet flat on brake and accelerator, turn key to 2nd position, read the fault code that shows up. post back here to find out what it means
