Oil Level gauge after battery replacement


Recommended Posts

Ok, After I did the ignition switch replacement (great M&P by the way. the DIY was great) When reconnecting the battery, putting in the radio codes and making sure all the electronics worked the only item that is not working right seems to be the Oil Level indicator. Says dead full, when before I did the work it was within the marks. Is there a way to reset it? I am 90% sure it is from the battery disco/reconnect.

What do you mean by 'dead full'? where on the indicator does the oil register---at the line where the upper arrow points or the 1 space above the line which the arrow points to.

Does it show 'dead full' after its been driven and then re-started again after its been sitting for about 30 mins or so?

Sorry, I must have been distracted when I typed that part "dead full"

Before I did the battery it was right in the middle after the countdown from 5, now it is right to the top line.

Also check it right after you turn off the car.  For sure at that time it should be less than full.  If it still reads full then you probably have a sensor problem.

Well it looks like it is overfull after the change, although not my much, just above the dot. Dealer says not an issue. But it still has me wary. I really thought it was the gauge, becasue I did not see this before the Battery swap.
