    Oil sensor faulty?

    Fabia 1.6 diesel, on startup yesterday, a yellow warning light came up on the information screen (not the normal speedo/tacho lights), the oil can symbol, with words to the effect that an oil sensor was faulty.

    I’ve checked the oil level is OK, and on subsequent startups it’s not come on again. The manual doesn’t seem to be 100% clear, other than the instruction to take it to a main dealer.

    Anyone had this, and what was the outcome?

    Thanks
    Just my opinion, do not shoot me if it differs from yours!

    Does your Fabia have a DPF? If it does, and you have been making short journeys and interrupting regenerations, the oil could have been contaminated with fuel. Has the oil level risen slightly? If that is the case you could need an urgent oil change as under certain conditions it is possible for the sump oil to ignite.

    Thanks again, T H, especially as Mrs B was due to use the car this morning, and then drive the 100 miles or so to Nottingham this pm.

    My local indie (Roy Chapman) pulled in an oil and filter change over the lunch period, and they confirmed your diagnosis.

    The latest is Mrs B arrived safely in Nottm with no dramas.
