    confused Radio and oil level warning light problems

    When we had the snow a while back the car (54 2.2 direct elegance Signum) gave a whole series of errors on startup. It indicated a service was due and also the oil level warning light came on (as well as the general engine spanner fault). I checked the oil and it was at the bottom of the acceptable level, so I topped it up so it was at the max acceptable.

    I cancelled the service indication, but the oil level warning light kept coming on after running the car for a while.

    Last week I took it into a dealer for a service (it has done 46k miles) and they gave it a 40k service. I asked them to look at the oil level warning light, but all they did was reset the system - and it came on as soon as I drove it out the garage. I went back in but they said all the techs ahd left so no-one could do anything.

    This morning it was really cold again and now the radio has stopped working. It is no longer paired and wants me to enter the code. I got the car pass and have had three tries to enter it - all failed. So either the code is wrong, which seems unlikely or there is some electronic fault preventing me doing the decode procedure.

    The oil level warning continues to come on, now usually after driving five or ten miles.

    Before I take it in and they talk about replacing the CIM, is there any other things I should do first? Are there any potentially faulty earth points or would a failing battery produce these symptoms? Or are the two faults unconnected; just a failed oil sensor and a dodgy radio/Cd set? The fact that the cold weather seemed to trigger them seems to indicate wiring or battery faults to me.

    I'm worried that these are the sort of faults that could have me shelling out a lot on replacement bits as I haven't much confidence in the dealers after the service episode. Getting rid of a warning indicator coming on isn't worth several hundred pounds to me if there is no underlying fault and the standard radio isn't that brilliant and again I am not spending lots on getting it working when the alternative is fitting an aftermarket radio.

    might just be the pressure switch for the oil has failes and the radio has been changed in its life so the code on your pass is wrong

    Yes, that's what I thought. But why has the radio lost its pairing in the first place? Once decoded it should keep working indefinitely, shouldn't it? I didn't have a flat battery this morning yet the radio was no longer paired.

    if the cranking takes the battery a little bit to low the radio will loose its code then the windows will loose their one touch memory

    If your radio is a NCDC, NCDR, CCR or CCR type radio, then yes you will indeed need to re-enter the code, if the battery was unplugged / replaced, or they had to disconnect the BCM for some reason.
    As said above, the battery could have gone "flat enough" following excessive cranking...assuming you may have had a non-start problem recently.

    If yours was a CD30, CDC40, CD50 or CD70 Navi (launched in October 2004) then you would be correct to think that the code does NOT need re-entering when the power to the radio has been cut and then restored.

    I'm not sure which radio I've got; it is double din with a central circular triple button to select between tape radio and cd. It has a cassette at the top and a 4cd changer at the bottom. The car is a late 2004 Signum
    Elegance - I don't know what the standard fitting would be.

    The audio manual I got with the car when I got it secondhand is for the single din car100, car200, ccr audio systems - it doesn't cover the model in the car.

    My car pass says the radio type/code is 0206/0864. Is the second part (the 0864) the radio code - as I was actually entering the Security Code (the one below the VIN) and this was the code the radio was rejecting.

    As for the battery it hasn't been subject to cranking or disconnection. The morning the radio became unpaired the car started first time, so this was why I was puzzled as to why it had happened. I have had no problems with starting and as far as I can tell the battery is fully charged and functioning fine.

    Sorry but i think that information is incorrect.

    The CCR2006 in my Omega does need the code re-entering if the battery runs down or is disconnected, HOWEVER the NCDC 2015 in my Signum doesn't. It didn't even need re-coding when i removed it to wire in my Parrott and re-fitted it, don't even think theres a code for it on the car pass.

    Thanks Robsey - it is a CCR2006. It lost the code overnight, the battery hadn't been disconnected and wasn't flat. Everything else functioned as normal the following morning; it started first time, the battery appears fine. So I'm puzzled as to why it's now asking for a code.

    I know computers have an internal battery and memory chip to remember settings like the date. After five or six years these fail - so perhaps these radios do too?

    Got the radio working again. We'll see if it remembers its code overnight or if losing the code was a one-off.
