Hi

Ive just been to my brother’s in law garage for a full service, however the red oil error comes up and says ADD OIL IMMEDIATELY, after the full service has been carried out. He’s checked it all, nothing is leaking ... told me it might be the sensor which he ordered and comes tomorrow and it should be fine to drive home, which i did. Just out of curiosity though, is it the sensor or could it be something else?
Many thanks

Mine did the same thing. 2012 S5. It was the hood latch sensor which for some reason ran along the same circuit as the oil level sensor.

Yep. When the light came on I spent about 20 minutes scouring the engine bay for the dipstick. A little over engineered, but absolutely love the car.

You will be told that the dipstick you order does not fit your car so you purchase "at yer own risk". I did and it fitted and worked perfectly. Wierd eh??
