    Does it come on and stay on? Or does it flash? On my S3 it came on and stayed on wihout it flashing. I looked in the booklet and it says stop immediately and take it to a garage to be looked at. I then thought about it and came to the conclusion that the worst thing that could of happened could be the cat is broken. Best solution o2 sensor is playing up. Non of which would hurt your car i do believe. But i'm no mechanic!! Mine went off after it cooled down and has never come back on.

    Go back to the garage and ask them to check it, they could have done something or even filled it with too much oil
