  1. My problem is with the oil temp ,,, i am getting the code and also i cant read my oil level because the cluster is giving me a msg that the engine is not wormed up ,,, i changed the oil sensor and still the same problem ,i am thinking of removing the sensor switch to see if i get a different code other than p0197(LOW Voltg) and that will indicate that the harness is fine ??? what do u think ??? Been out all day, but had a look at the wiring diagram. Nearly all the signals go to the instrument cluster first not the DME. Here are the pin numbers required at the instrument cluster: B18 ground oil level colour Br/Or B2 Oil level Colour Gn/Bu B5 Oil Pressure Colour Gn/Rd A13 Oil pressure switch Colour Gn/Wh I will look to see if I can find some more . Frank Right also found the Motor Oil Temperature goes to the DME pin C5 Colour Gn/Rd. Apart form oil temp it would appear the DME doe not have anything else to do with the oil pressure or level :)
  2. maybe there is way to know which pin refers to oil temp sensor from the DME side so i can check for continuity ?

  4. Hi all only the driver side of the spoiler goes up and the other side is not moving at all ,,, any ideas ? thanks and regards
  5. hi all i need ur kind help with the following 1- p0197 Oil temperature i changed the sensor and still its not working i cant know the oil level coz am getting engine is not worm massage , durametric is giving me this code again and again , i understand it could be the harness or the DME(hopefully not) , how can i check the wiring ? i want to check if the wiring is ok (grounding maybe ?) 2- 4460 Pressure sensor when i reach the speed of 50kilo/m i get PSM/ABS how can i troubleshoot the system ?below 50km the ABS seems to work fine thanks in advance
