oil level sensor failure

Recommended Posts

Hi, My '02 Boxster S is showing a flashing oil level display on startup. After a few seconds it stops and displays mileage. No counter and no level shown. The manual says if whole display flashing then the oil level senser is faulty.

I had the sensor replaced at recent service but no change. Local Porsche dealership have car with same problem after replacing sensor. Their next plan is to replace the cluster. I'm trying to confirm with them that replacing the cluster solved the problem but they haven't come back to me.

Replacement cluster is around $1200 but you can pick one up for a fraction of that cost on Ebay. I've read up on cluster removal and I don't think it's a major task, but wanted to ask if anyone has any thoughts or suggestions?

Someone suggested bad gas cap. I can hear a pressure release hiss when I unscrew the cap, so I think it's doing it's job ok.

Anyway thanks for any input.
