I think that error can be caused if the engine oil level is too high. What is the oil level on the dip stick?

I had the same message on my C5 four years ago. I detailed it here https://www.frenchcarforum.co.uk/forum/ ... =3&t=55464 - mostly on the first page and some more relevant posts on the third page.

You don't say what engine you have. Mine is the 163bhp 2.0Hdi.

He has a petrol EP6FDT M.

The level read will only be correct if the vehicle is on level ground and the engine has been off for more than 30 minutes.

Hi
The car was switched off all the night and the car is parked on a level ground.
However i went today to the service center and they told me that the sensor needs calibration and initialization, then asked me to check today and revert back to them if it appears again
