If they can't do it then, then car comes in for an oil change a couple months after that. If they can't do it then, well the pattern should be obvious by now.
The SES indicates a fault code in the vehicle, not that service is overdue. When service is overdue, another icon shows in the dash, I believe it looks something like a wrench. Do not confuse the two. When the SES light comes on, it is best to have it looked at by a mechanic.
