    Default Oil light on after service

    Hi Guys

    Just had the Signum serviced and MOT'd and not a single advisory! Woo Hoo!

    Only problem now is that after about 80 miles, the oil light has come on.

    I know it has to work it's way through the system when replaced, does this suggest that they didn't fill it full enough when they replaced it?

    If so, would you suggest taking it back to have them top it up, or should I just buy some oil myself after checking the level?

    It was done by Arnold Shark, so anything is possible!

    Your help is appreciated

    I have mate. 5 minutes after engine off. I can seem to tell from the dip stick though. Is there any other reason that the light would come on other than the oil level?

    Heard a few stories over the years with the vec-c oil level light coming on just after servicing including my own . Serviced my VXR day before PVS last year and my light came on doing about 80mph on the M6.....pulled over and feared the worst . Switched car off and checked the oil level and it was fine .. never done it again since and was serviced again 2 weeks ago. Was told it could have been a small oil particle or something fouling the sensor so as long as its not the red oil pressure light on your car and the oil level's sound then wouldn't worry too much
