    Default Activate cruise control and low oil warning light comes on??!!!

    Last week we went down to Yorkshire for a few days and about 50 miles into the journey, the low oil warning light came on. This had happened when the missus was driving it a few days earlier. I checked the oil level then and it hardly needed any adding to it but I topped it up a wee bit ( still wasn't over the "Max" level though, obviously not a good idea to have too much oil in it ).

    Anyway, the light came on again as I said so we pulled over and I checked the level again. It was spot on. Started car and low warning light was out and didnt come back on.

    Got about 20 miles further down the road and it came on again. Same drill, checked the level and it was still spot on.

    Then the wife says "You don't think it has anything to do with the cruise control?". At first I thought "Silly mare" but to humour her I said we would drive the rest of the way without using cruise. Anyway, the light didn't come back on for the rest of the journey and we did the same on the way back and it was the same.

    Anyone had anything similar?. Electrical gremlins or something?.

    Haha not heard of that... however... mine came on on a trip from UK out to Germany. Was on Cruise control too... however as it happened at 4am, on the Calais rallye, we did have to go to a 24 hour shell garage! Which cost 30 euros for 1 litre of oil...

    Was a little bit below full, almost at half way, so only needed a tiny bit, but it kept it off all the way home! I think they are just uber sensitive

    Now this is strange, as when I was going to Scotland with the cruise on for a while, the check light indicator came on, and the display said "check rear fog"...

    There was no actual problem with the fogs at all...
