    I Switched my car on today and it bleeped at me with a warning light that said NSIP on it with a symbol of a spanner next to it. I can't seem to find anywhere what this means. Can anyone help? Thanks.

    Is it actually INSP it says? This is the service light with INSP being short for inspection, When was it last serviced?

    I bought it a month ago and was serviced and MOT then. Will it need another service?

    Oh and it defiantly begins with an N but that may just be a fault

    If it was serviced, they must have forgotten to reset the service INSP indicator.
    Ask the dealer to reset it, or google and find out how to do it yourself.
    I did it myself on my wife's peugeot 206 because the damn spanner lit up the week before I was trading it in and i
    didn't want to pay for a service.

    you need put the key in the ignition press and hold down on the mileage reset, turn the key once so dashboard lights up, turn off ignition after 10 seconds, let go of mileage button
