Hi again.

I have a message in the DIS on my 2008 S5 that reads, "Oil level! Sensor defective". However, upon scanning with VCDS, I found no fault codes for the oil level sensor, rather, a 000406 - Engine Oil Temp. Sensor (G8) P0196 - 004 - Implausible Signal.
So which one is it? The level sensor or the temperature sensor? I'm fairly certain they're separate sensors since I have an early '08 model with a dipstick.
I've already checked the level sensor on the bottom of the pan, it's plugged in with wiring in good condition, but I haven't tested with a meter yet. As for the temp sensor, I'm not exactly sure where that one is located.

Surely, I'm not the only one that's ran into this.
Input is appreciated.
