Check Oil Level warning
For quite a while now, my wife'* '93 SSEi has been chiming and displaying the "check oil level" warning in the driver info center display every time the engine is started. The chime and light occur about 10 seconds after starting the engine, and the light always turns off about 20 seconds after it turns on. The oil level is full.
Last weekend I changed the oil and replaced the oil level sensor in the pan with a ("working") used one that I bought from one of the members of this group who parted-out his '93. The warning still occurs! So then I removed the electrical connector and bent the 3 electrical contacts to make a tight electrical connection. And again the error still occurs just after the engine is started, even when the car is on a level street.
Can anyone tell me how to test the oil level sensor with a multimeter? I searched this board and found that my car isn't the only one whith this bogus "low oil level" warning.
It'* also worth noting that the one that I removed from my '93 SSEi has a clear plastic pointed tip (roughly 2" long) on the oil side of the sensor, and the used one I bought just has a recessed pointed lens on the oil side of the sensor.
