    Default Add sensor for screen wash level?

    My car didn't come with a GID so when i've added it, it now says check screen wash level every time I turn the ignition on.

    I know it's no biggy but is there a way to add the sensor and wiring without changing the full engine harness? Mine doesn't have the plug there for the sensor to just pop in

    Or can you disable that check?

    Yes there is mate, I did it. You get an extra small but if wiring made for you and plug it in, easy job to do but bumper needs to be removed on the nearside. The level sensors are cheap enogh as well.

    Well there is not much to it. Two wires from the sensor about 2 foot long, one goes to the UEC fusebox in the engine bay and the other connects to the earth bolt on the inner wing next to it..

    You can find them at scrappies but I never have, only crappy old taxis in basic spec.

    You can disable it in opcom as you say but it will also switch off all your ithdr check control items that wil flash up when they need attention.
