When I turned it back on, the 'change oil soon' light AND the 'service engine soon' light came on. The oil light went out after a minute, but the service light stayed on. The car sounds fine, the temp gauge stayed good (didn't overheat) but that light makes me nervous and I don't understand why there is no air coming from the console vents.
