Electronic fault on Renault Megane

After I turn the ignition on my Renault Megane (2004) shows a reading on the dashboard that says 'electronic fault' and the orange 'service' rectangle comes on all of the time. Any idea what might be wrong?

The instruments of these can play tricks and cry wolf but still wise to get it checked by an independent Renault specialist - someone who knows the quirks of the cars. Not a Renault dealer.
