    Default Oil warning on dash

    Today an 'oil can' sign has come on the dash. Went off when stopped at services but came back on hour or two back on motorway. Its a 1.8 54 plate estate.
    Oil level is spot on and its run around 3000 miles on fresh oil and filter.

    Is it likely to be sensor or genuine pump/engine problem?

    Cheers in advance guys.

    Oil can symbol (Yellow pixel display)means that you are due a service...

    Oil warning light in red is a faulty pressure switch

    Some Vx oil sensors are very sensitive to oil level, they show alert warning even when oil level is above 1/3 over the minimum. Add some oil (0.2-0.3l), warning light should be off.
