Having problems with your 2006 Renault 181 ?

My service light came on in my car and i took it to the garage all they did was turn the light off. They never told me all they said was everything should be fine now, a few months down the line i am having problems and they are saying its down to missing a service when i didnt i need what i needed by taking it to the garage. The garage are now saying they never did. Nothing was registered on the computer as i just found out, as no work was done. how can i prove they did switch the light off as

Ok, This is how service light works on a renault, depending on where you live and if you have a diesel or petrol engine or if it is configured to mph or km, example if you have a car that is configured to 15000km every 1 km that you do the indicator on the instrument panel will be reduce by 1 giving us a reading of 14999 and went reaching 0 the service light will come on.
\015\012Another way for the service light to come on is if the instrument panel is configured on a timely basis, example 6 months 12 months 24 months So what ever comes first mileage done or months gone will give the indication of the service light.
\015\012So I can only presume that when the car was in for its last service they most likely forgot to reset the service indicator.
\015\012Every time you take your car for a service that service indicator must always be reset otherwise you'll get complications like these.
When u clear computer code its erased theirs nothing else --- u usually get a service receipt when u bring a car into a garage that shows u were in for a problem that u sign- usually have plate- vin- mileage in- mileage out- what the problem is- and what was done to fix that problem even if it was just to reset a light if u didnt get a receipt its ur word against theirs-- a service light[for oil change or reminder] can be cleared by turning on ignition pump pedal 3x and its cleared or by a scanner by hitting a button ur car or scanner do not keep anything in memory or hard copy once cleared
