Am guessing its nothing but the Master Warning Lamp (right of the rev counter) will intermittently come on whilst driving. Had a quick flick through the manual but couldn't find more details other than it (apparently) comes on with other 'warnings'? A couple of times I've noticed it come on as the external temp drops or when the change gear indicator shows. Should I be worried?

Ecce.is that the warning triangle?

Does this not come on if traction control kicks in? Are the roads snowy/icy?

txs CF and Fee, still new to the 'feel' of the car but its not always come on when the traction control would/might kick in and has happened on dry road. will pay more attention to when it comes on and mail the dealer if it persists.

I wonder if it could be anything on your seat? Perhaps just weighing enough to set off your seatbelt light without the beep?.

It is a puzzle for both of you. I cant say I have noticed this in mine...

no need to say anything now ;)

and I do throw my jacket on the back seets but its intermittent. The manual seems to say that an outside temp warning will set it off so am no longer all that worried :) Am off to greenock Wednesday and will try to do a 1 week report on the QQ if I make the last ferry home (damn Winter timetable)

Mine did the same when it was new. It came on when I was going to see Mr Fishin when He was going to do my car
 
Now it takes quite a while to go out at start up even after every thing, like phone USB stick etc has been checked. Told the dealer and he said a majority the facelift cars do it and not to worry
 
Also they put there fault machine/Laptop on it and all was saying ok

yep. After start up it stays on for about 1 minute then goes off.... that said, i havent had it come on again whilst driving, that is unless the fuel gauge warning light comes on. Then it'll stay on constantly.

Mine came on this morning along with the Low Outside Temperature on the display.

Never normally comes on though, other than at start up.

txs Fee :) looks like our drive to Greenock on Wednesday might get delayed due to the weather - was hoping to have a decent run to check things out but looks like it will be another time now.

Mine came on again last night but only because it warned me it was chuffing freeeeezing outside! and also that the car was skidding all over the place as i was attempting to drive up a nice curvy road full of snow lol!
 
I must say the car is sh*t in snow going uphill! it didnt want to budge, even with winter tyres on! going downhill was fine the grip on the tyres was brill but uphill was a no go!!
 
 the car struggles uphill anyways without snow on roads anyone else noticed this or is it just mine?

I thought the QQ handled fine bOth today and yesterday , like you on winter tyres. Mind you it's more icy slush here.

Only lightly slid once going round an icy corner. Is your ESP on Or off?? Mine is on but I don t think the weather here is as bad as yours.

Mines a diesel , think someone says that diesels perform better in the snow than petrol. Don't know if this is correct or not??!!

Good luck. Fee x

450 miles on the clock and it is happening to me also. The light remains on for about 20 seconds after starting the engine and also flashed on for blip of a second while on the motorway this morning. it seemed to come on when the Change gear up/down light appered.
 
Anyway, reading the posts, it seems there is no real reason for it. Everything else appears to be ok.

Could the temperature guage have gone down just for a second to 3 degrees. thats usually when the low temp indicator comes on too?

Yes, that's quite likely fee.
It did drop from 4c to 1c on the way to work this morning. Maybe that was the reason.

mine comes on when first started select mpg on steering wheel button and it should go out asked dealer about it he said it was a useless light but should not come on when driving that makes it not a useless light in my opinion

This is interesting. 
Mine stays on for about five second when first start in the morning. If the car is warm, it will stay on for may be a couple of seconds. There is usually no one in the back of the car. It seems to stay on same amount of time regards of external temperature.

our warning light stays on permanently unless I plug in the rear seatbelt as there is a fault in the rear seatbelt sensor, other than that it only comes on if another warning light appears in the car.. it comes on here regularly with the low external temp and also comes on daily each tme engine is switched on until all diagnostic checks are complete.

warning light on ours comes on at start up ,stays on for about 250 metres of travel then goes out and all other functions are normal .Then it only comes on if a door not closed etc.
Been like that from new .I cant remember if it was that way on previous qq.
good luck.
