DS5 oil warning

Post by zipdip » 23 Mar 2019, 11:47

Hi all,well I had the car serviced,the mechanic said the diesel filter looked as though it had never been changed,and the pollen filters were completely full of crap,still all put right now,one small question,before I had the service when I started the car from cold I used to get in the right dash pod a message saying oil level correct this now seems to have disapeared,checked the oil level and it is correct in fact the car uses no oil between services,but I wondered if anybody knew how to get it back.

Ok, so there should be 3 messages displayed of this type regarding the oil. oil Level Correct and Oil Level Indicator Faulty.

So one of these should be appearing - however, the readings will only be read correctly when the car is level and the engine has been OFF for 30 minutes.

If you are not getting a warning after the 30 minutes then get it back to the dealer. I would also manually check the dipstick reading - again after the engine has been idle for a while and on level ground.

Hi Marc well today when I started my car I did get a message in the right dash pod,after 5 days of nothing it has put up Oil Level Measurement Invalid well I am making progress from nothing to that message,the oil level looking at the dipstick is correct right up to the top mark A on the dipstick,I suppose I will have to take it back to the mechanic,I wondered if he used his diagnostic Snap-On tool to reset the service light instead of the way we spoke about in a earlier post,a shame because as a service went it was a good one,at least I suppose as I have a message at least it proves that the oil level sensor is working,I had a look around the engine but could not spot it,I thought maybe the electrical connection was not on,maybe the sensor has to be reset time will tell.

Hi Marc well this morning I started the car and up came the right message of Correct Oil Level, so after 6 days the car got itself right,I was just going to the mechanic to see if he had any suggestions,well at least this tread may help somebody who has the same problem.

Sometimes it can take a while to calibrate itself. Glad you have it sorted.
