The computer in your car has detected a problem with your engine. It could be an oxygen flow problem or something large. Take your car into a Auto care center and have it tested. Many places will do this for free. Get the code and see what the trouble is. Some times there will be more than 1 problem but only the first one will show up and will have to be corrected before the 2nd will appear. If it is just a glitch, detact your battery and let it sit for a couple of minutes. This will clear the computer and the light if there is really no problem and just a glitch.

Check the crankshaft sensor. The sensor connector could be loose or the sensor could be bad. Try to read the engine codes to see if the computer shows an issue.

Is oasis 2 service necessary?

Not at all. It belongs to VAIO messenger. Like any other service, it is possible to stop and start the service as well as configure the service to start on boot-up or by manual start. To do this, go to Start menu, Programs, Administrative Tools, and run Computer Management. In Computer Management, find and open the folder Services and Applications and then select Services. A list will appear on the right, from which you can select Oasis2Services and then click the 'Stop Services' button at the menu icon bar. Double clicking Oasis2Services will bring up the configuration properties, where you can chose Manual instead of automatic for the startup type. Doing so will prevent it from starting on boot. Now you don't have to uninstall the Oasis2Service program perminently.
