It only comes on when it's cold and goes off once the car is warmer (its winter in New Zealand at present). I asked another Opa owner and he indicated it meant ' take it easy on the RPM until the engine is warmer'.

That's exactly what it is. My mum got a new Versa, and it does that. My '02 Corolla on the other hand has an actual thermometer gauge. It's basically the same thing.
