Default Low oil level?

Just drove back from lunch and on the drivers information center it all of a sudden says "low oil level". I checked my level and it'* fine. So is the oil pressure. What'* could be wrong? Sensor? PCM? I just put in the Intense PCM last week. Looks like I might have to put the stock PCM back in and see if that'* it. If not, guess I'll take it to the dealer.....

probably just a bad switch.. try switching the PCM back, if not take it to the dealer just remember not to tell them about the new PCM

Prolly the sensor or wiring, located to the front of the car in the middle of the oil pan.

Or you could come up to Oregon next week for west coast bonne fest and we could look at it for you

Very funny :( Believe me, I would like nothing more! :( :(
Anyway, it never came back on on the drive home....maybe just a fluke thing?

Its a float sensor, maybe it got hung up a bit? How clean is your oil?
Or it could be an intermitent wiring problem?
